How cute is this basket of 3D paper strawberries made with the Cricut. This screams summer time all the way. Are you starting to gear up for summer, maybe a trip or two planned, or days at the pool? Do you see yourself crafting this summer making all the things?

This is a super fun project to make and looks so good when put together. All of the pieces for this project were cut out using my Cricut Maker.
Here’s a video of the process.
Lay the white HTV vinyl carrier sheet on top of the red strawberry piece.
Heat the Cricut Easy Press Mini to the medium setting.
Put the Cricut Easy Press Mat down first (sorry I forgot to do this in the picture). Place the Cricut Easy Press Mini on top of the carrier sheet for about 25 seconds, moving it constantly. Then turn the strawberry piece over and iron on the backside for 15 seconds, moving the Cricut Easy Press Mini constantly.
Remove the carrier sheet.
As you can see, the White Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) seed pieces are now attached to the red strawberry piece.
Putting The Strawberry Together
Let’s start putting the strawberry together. The first thing you want to do is fold on the score lines and then with the Liquid Adhesive start gluing the tabs to the opposite sides.
Next we will add the green leaf topper.
With the Liquid Adhesive, glue the stem to the leaf piece.
Add Liquid Adhesive to the bottom of the leaf piece.
With the Liquid Adhesive, Glue the leaf piece to the top of the strawberry.
