Create Filled Strawberry Treat Boxes by Roni

Posted on July 09 2019

Fresh strawberries are one of my all time favorite treats in the summer time. Today I take that love of strawberries and turn it into a fun little treat box for your next get together.

These treat boxes are so fun and easy to make you can whip up a whole quart basket full in no time. Let's begin!

Step 1 - For each strawberry cut one (1) 4" circle from Ruby/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper or Ruby/Ruby Starstruck Foiled Paper and one (1) 2 1/4" circle from Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper or Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Foiled Paper
Note: This will yield a 1 1/2" tall strawberry which holds a surprising amount of chocolate salted caramel pretzel bits (which is what this example is filled with). You can make larger or smaller strawberry containers by increasing or decreasing the size of the circles.

Step 2 - Fold the Ruby circle in half three times as shown in the photo. Repeat this step for each strawberry treat box you want to make.

Step 4 - Punch a hole in the folded piece near the center approximately 1/8" down from the top.

Step 5 - Open the folded circle up; trim off 2 of the petals and save for another project.

Step 6 - Cut a length of green twine 20" long and double it over so you have a 10" long piece of twine.
Step 7 - Over lap the first and last segment of the circle and align the holes; feed the folded edge of the twine through both of these segments so you now have a little container.

Step 8 - Thread the twine from the outside towards the inside of the next petal of the container.

Step 9 - Continue threading the twine through each petal until you are back where you started.
Step 10 - It is time to fill the container with desired goodies. I used Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt Pretzel Bits but you could of course fill them with candy, nuts, or other treats.

Step 11 - Fold the Emerald circles the same way you did the Ruby circles.

Step 13 - Thread the leaves onto the twine and tie the twine into a bow to secure the strawberry and it's contents.

Step 14 - (optional) If desired you can use a marker to make little black seeds or you can leave the strawberry plain. They look cute either way.
