Berry Sweet

There are certain things that I love to collect (hoard? maybe!)
These new Berry Baskets from Curtsey Boutique are my new obsession
and I can't wait to gather up even more colors and sizes!
While creating my latest project, I came up with several more ideas for them.
Today I have an interchangeable display using the wooden forks
(also new at Curtsey) as a way to clip on photos, recipes or notes!



To start, you will need a Pint Size Pulp Berry Basket and floral foam.
Cut the floral foam to fit into the basket.
For the shred, I used two of the Medium Kraft Bags.  I cut strips using 'fringe' scissors
by Martha Stewart, but you could also use regular scissors to cut the strips.
Crush the shreds with your hands.  Apply a thin coat of quick dry glue to the top
of the foam and then cover in the paper shreds.
 Other Curtsey Boutique Supplies:
Wooden Forks; 5" Paper Doily; and Shabby Chic Paper Bow

Patterned papers and die-cuts by My Minds' Eye
