A Sweet Berrylicious Tutorial {And a Freebie!}

Not too long ago, a sweet reader asked how did I made my Treat Boxes. Well, today I wanted to relax from school and work for a few hours so what a better way to relax than to sit in front of my computer and play with Illustrator! 

My daughter is all Strawberry Shortcake right now, her grandpa got her the new movie and all she  wants to do is watch it again and again. So I thought I could make a little box for her to play with...  I love this colors so much that now I am trying to decide between Alice in Wonderland or Strawberry Shortcake for her birthday! 

Maybe you have a little one that loves Strawberry Shortcake as well so I decided to share this wonderful design with all of you.  I am not a fan of doing heavy character birthdays, but if you go to the Strawberry Shortcake site, along with this free download you can throw a little inexpensive party for your little girl. I will probably dedicate another post for that.  

For now, here is a little tutorial on how to make a cute 3.5 inches square box (with some Sweet Circles as a bonus!!!) like the one pictured below:
 UPDATE: Download the Sweet Berrylicious Collection here.

Then follow this simple instructions:
Print the file on heavy cardstock and cut around the box template. Score on all the light pink lines. Put the parts of the box side by side as shown here.
 Glue or tape this two sides first. You should end up with something like this.
Glue or tape the side flap as shown above, then the flaps at the bottom. That's it! 
Your beautiful box should look like this:
Your little princess will have lots of fun with it...
Add a little tissue paper in bright green for a festive look.
Punch the free Sweet Circles and you are ready to party!!!
I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial and freebie, if you did please let me know by commenting below!

  15. I'm Ana from Argentina and I've been looking for something related to strawberries without the actual character on it for ages (my daughter made it very clear that that's not what she wants, she just wants plain strawberries, and she's only turning 3 next May!) And now I find this and it feels like heaven!!! I'm not crafted at all to create stuff on my computer but I love organizing everything related to her parties myself, so this is priceless to me! Just know that in Argentina there's somebody who'll be forever thankful to you.
