Strawberry Fields Forever
Now that we’ve shown you how to make adorable paper strawberries, we have to craft up some paper strawberry baskets to go with them! Making these is so easy, and you can use them for a number of different things. If you are making the strawberries, you can display them in these cartons for your summer home decor. Or, you can use them as little DIY gift baskets for your teacher appreciation or hostess gifts. DIY wedding favors? Why not! This project is an opportunity to explore your own creativity, and it’s easy enough for the kids to join in on the fun too.
Tools & Materials
- Scissors or Cutting Machine
- Low Temperature Hot Glue Gun
Using a Cutting Machine
If you happen to have a machine like a Cricut, making these strawberry cartons will be extremely easy. To replicate the size of standard berry baskets, we made the template around 10 x 10 inches, so you will need 12 x 12 cardstock to go with the SVG file. We recommend getting paper that has a bit of texture to it. You can use a classic teal color for these, or play around with different colors depending on the display you are creating. Once the template is trimmed, fold along the score lines (indicated in magenta in the file) and glue the tabs with hot glue. Simple!
Cutting by Hand
If you are cutting our paper strawberry baskets by hand, start by downloading the PDF version of the template. We sized down the template a bit so that you can print it directly onto 8.5 x 11 cardstock. After you print, you can cut out the basket with scissors. To trim out the openings in the basket, we recommend using an x-acto blade. Just like the SVG version, once you cut everything out you can fold it together and attach the sides by gluing the tabs.

Can I buy only this template or I do need to pay the membership to be able to use it??
Hi! We aren’t currently able to offer single downloads. You can sign up for a monthly membership and cancel anytime before your month is up after you have downloaded what you need 🙂
This turned out so cute. I too had to figure out to change some lines to scoring. Then it was just fun with colors and sizes of the berries.
Love this! Had no problems cutting the berry basket on my Cricut, once I changed the fold lines to “score” and attached all. Thank you!
I’m very new to cutting machines and SVG files. I’m having trouble saving this SVG file to use with my Zing Orbit. When I save the file, it cannot be recognized by my machine. Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for your help, and your patience…
Hi Tanya! I’m sorry but I’m not familiar with that machine or the software it uses to cut. You may need to convert the SVG files to something compatible with the software for your machine. Hopefully you’re able to reach out to Zing Orbit’s customer service and get some help!
Love ’em all! Thank you for your inspiration!
So glad you love them!
