Chocolate Covered Paper Strawberries

Chocolate Covered Paper Strawberries I thumb Chocolate Covered Paper Strawberries

These chocolate covered paper strawberries are just the cutest paper craft I have seen in a while. I found the cutting file in the Silhouette online store and immediately downloaded it.

Here’s the supplies I used

1 – 12 x 12 sheet of red cardstock

1 – 6.5 x 12 piece of green cardstock

1 – 3 x 10 piece of brown cardstock

Hot glue & gun

Twine or ribbon

Here are the screen shots from Silhouette Studio. I resized the file to my liking.

Fold the strawberry along the perforations and fold into place, gluing the short tab to the petal.

I tied a knot in my twine and then fed the twine through the petals of the strawberry.

Slide the large petal down over the twine and then the smaller petal, securing with a dab of hot glue.

Then fold the chocolate piece along the perorations, fold to create the final shape and glue the tab in place. Then put a few dabs of hot glue on the inside of the chocolate shape and place over the point part of the strawberry, be sure to line up the corners.

  33. sarah…these are adorable…..very cute. i’m one of the many….or few, as the case may be….without a silhouette. any chance you could just put the pattern on a pdf for us of us without one of these amazing machines to print out? would so, so love it if you could make that a possibility.

  34. LOVE THEM Sarah!! Honestly, the cutest strawberries EVER!!!

    Thanks so much for partying with me last week at The DIY Dreamer… From Dream To Reality! I’m really looking forward to seeing what you share tomorrow evening!

    For those of us without a Silhouette; does anyone have a template for making these?

  42. So totally cute! I have a question… would they be adaptable so that you could fill them with candy do you think?
