Berry Blessings Berry Basket Tutorial

Yesterday I shared a Sweet Strawberry berry basket. Today’s flavor is a blueberry version.

If you missed yesterday’s post all about the Sweet Strawberry basket you can view it HERE. Today I’m focusing on the blueberry basket which holds some delicious blueberry jam.

I used the Berry Blessings Bundle from Sale-A-Bration. This is My Favorite Sale-A-Bration item! You get the Berry Blessings Stamp Set and the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper for FREE with an online order of $100 or more.

I have been creating so many fun projects with this bundle. I love the juicy paper designs and “wishing you the berry best” sentiment I used on the coordinating card.

The gift card is a 3 x 6 piece of Pacific Point scored at 3″. I cut a 2 3/4 Basic White square and stamped the sentiment along the bottom with Pacific Point ink. I added a 2 3/4″ x 2″ piece of the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper and wrapped some navy ribbon (from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack) around and tied a bow. I adhered this layer to the card base. This little gift card can fit in the basket with the jam.

I made a coordinating card for the strawberry version as well.

The dimensions for the strawberry card are the same except I added a 1/2 x 2 3/4 strip of DSP along with a punched flower like the tag on the jar of jam. Are you wondering where I got the twine? It’s actually white and is found in the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack.  Here’s today’s TIP…Use Stampin’ Blends to color the white twine any color you want! I used the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to color it to coordinate. I am thrilled Stampin’ Up! brought the twine back.  Now you can make any color you want with some white twine and Stampin’ Blends!

As promised, here’s the details to make the berry basket:

Directions:

  4. Use a bone folder to curl the strips to break up the fibers. Add liquid glue on each side of the score line.

  5. Start in the back and using the smaller strip fold over the back piece and join the two sides together leaving a little gap between.

  6. Use the long strip and start along the side overlapping the back piece and adhere the front and side pieces to form the basket.

    *This basket was made to fit the Stonewall Kitchen jars. You can alter the dimensions for any size jar. The Wild Maine Blueberry Jam from Stonewall Kitchen is the closest to homemade I’ve found!

This gift set is for a friend of mine who loves blueberry jam on her morning bagel! Prior to the pandemic she would come visit often and stay a few days each time. I always had this blueberry jam for her. I really miss her visits and wanted to let her know I’m thinking of her!

Which is your favorite flavor, strawberry or blueberry?

Sweet Strawberry Berry Basket

The Sweet Strawberry Bundle is one of My Favorite Things in the new Mini Catalog. I paired it with one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items, the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper, to create this berry basket for gift giving.

I love to make homemade strawberry jam. This past year was different (to say the least!) and I didn’t get to pick strawberries and make homemade jam like I normally would. I really like the Stonewall Kitchen products (Red Pepper Jelly is my favorite) so I decided to try their Strawberry Jam and it did not disappoint. I usually give my homemade jam to friends and family so I created this cute strawberry basket to hold this jar of jam.

The Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper is perfect for this berry basket! You can earn the paper and Berry Blessings Stamp set for FREE during Sale-A-Bration with an online order of $100 or more.

It pairs perfectly with the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set and Strawberry Builder Punch. This set was one of the first sets I purchased from the new Mini Catalog (January – June 2021).

I used the stamp set and coordinating punch to create the tag for the top of my jam jar.
Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry Tag idea for strawberry jam jar - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I cut out a Basic White circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies then stamped the strawberry vine image in Garden Green ink. I colored the leaves with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. The strawberry outline image is stamped in Poppy Parade ink then stamped again with the filler image and punched out using the Strawberry Builder Punch. I stamped the stem on Granny Apple Green cardstock with Garden Green ink and punched it out. Strawberry flowers are white with a yellow center and a touch of green. I punched the flower, used the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to draw some lines in the center, and added a bumblebee dot from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots. The circle tag is adhered to the top of the jar with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped it all up in a cellophane bag with some Granny Apple Green ribbon. This makes a great hostess gift or a little something to brighten someone’s day. You could also give with some bread, bagels, or crackers as a housewarming gift.
