June's Crafts Beautiful project... 

Strawberry gift tag

Twine flowers card

June is the month when British strawberries are at their best. Take inspiration from the vibrant berry tones to create this sweet gift-tag. The project is easy to put together and combines papercraft with a little machine embroidery and simple hand sewing. 

1. Cut a piece of white card to 8cm x 9cm. Apply a layer of multi-purpose craft glue and cover with a peach scallop fabric. Once dry, machine stitch a decorative border in navy thread, trapping a length of ribbon underneath the top edge.

2. Create a template in the shape of a strawberry with a stalk from thin card. Apply a layer of glue, then cover with plain red fabric and leave to dry. Machine or hand stitch the white seed decoration. Cut a stalk in green fabric and stitch to the top. Mount the fruit onto the tag and add dots of glitter to highlight the design.
