Strawberry Boxes with CTMH Artiste Cartridge

My darling daughter is a strawberry crazed girl.  When spring time rolls around and the huge 4lb containers of them hit Costco, I buy two a week and we go through them all.  So its not surprising that one of the first projects I created with the new CTMH Artiste cartridge was a pair of the adorable Strawberry Boxes for my girl.
I cut these at 4.5" to get two to a page which is not as big as you can go for this box - I think the max is about 6.25".  Here is a shot against a ruler so you can see the size.  They are just right for a mini candy bar, a small baggie of candy, a pair of earrings, etc.  They'd be very cute to make tiny and put in a basket or to use as a table decoration/party favor for a summer themed party.  

I ran the cut shape through my Cuttlebug with the Polka Dot folder (I folded the cut out in half so it fit in one go).
I used a roll of jute twine I had to thread through the Cricut trimmed holes and then up through the center of the strawberry leaves and tied a bow on top.  Easy-peasy!  Love how adorable these look and that some very old Christmas paper I had worked PERFECTLY for the cute leaves!

I hope I'm wetting your whistle for the new CTMH Artiste Cartridge that is available on August 1st!

I see what you mean now. Thanks so much for the tip, Paige. My only wonder is if it would look off center without the leaves on top. Might have to play around with them a bit more. Thanks so much!! :)
