Silhouette Cameo 3D Strawberry Box – Lori Whitlock

I enjoyed making this…berry much.

Ever since I was eight years old I’ve had a strawberry themed birthday. My Mom started the theme and my best friend/husband still keeps the tradition going. He makes me a strawberry cake with strawberry icing, buys strawberry ice cream and creates a strawberry drink for me every year.  I’ll be enjoying those things this very day since it’s my b’day!  Woo hoo!  Here’s a link to last years party so you can see that I’m totally serious about my strawberry b’day. If you love strawberries like I do, consider using Lori’s adorable strawberry box file!

These colors remind me that spring is right around the corner!

I’m using the strawberry boxes along with Lori’s Candy Box file to create strawberries I can enjoy all year!

Food fact: Strawberries are the only fruit with seeds on the outside. Joy’s Non Fact: Strawberries are perfect.

 This box can hold all kinds of things and was easy to put together.  Lori has a great video on how to assemble this Candy Box.  You’re going to find it very easy to put together.

Curious about what I’m using to line the inside of the lid?  It’s the clear outer manufacturer packaging that protects new Cricut cartridges!

Food Fact: Strawberries are the first fruit to ripen in the spring.

I made two of these boxes so you’re seeing some different paper colors in this photo.  See that brown paper on the right?  I should be showing four of those because each one of the four creates a tiny insert for the larger box.  I’d already made three of them so I just had this one left to show.  These are easy to fold, just follow the perforations.  You only need a little glue and you’re all set!

Fact: There is a museum in Belgium just for strawberries. Joy’s Opinion: There should be one on every corner. LOL!

I made the strawberries 3.6″ x 4″ to fit inside the box. Consider cutting several strawberries out in larger sizes and filling them with treats. Wouldn’t that be cute at a party? Tie one on a gift for an adorable tag! I want to strawberry everything! LOL! If you turn it upside down guess what? You get a Christmas tree! Multipurpose strawberries are the best aren’t they?

I’m off to Celebrate!  Happy Creating!

  3. Happy birthday Joy! I could think of other fruits that wouldn't make such a great birthday tradition....like prunes. Or kiwi's. Strawberries are super. I like that we have 2 seasons for strawberries :) Have a SUPER birthday.

  7. 5Monkeys, Thank you for the happy birthday wishes! Sadly, you can no longer use SCAL or Make the Cut with the Cricut. Boo hoo. You can use MTC with the Silhouette Cameo or SD though. Happy face! ~Joy~
