Chocolate Covered Strawberries!

So SVGCuts new kit Sweets For My Sweet is just that, super sweet!!  I love the strawberry in this kit, so cute, I resized mine down to about 2" so I could have three on a plate.  There are a couple cute Valentine projects to make from this kit.  The pencil holder and cracker boxes are perfect for the kids to bring into school with some Valentine treats.  And for your sweetie a nice gift box filled with candy and a cupid card to go with it!  So now onto my project...

To make the strawberries look like real chocolate I covered the bottom brown part with versamark and adding two coats of UTEE.  I should have made my tops just a tiny bit bigger, the utee is thicker but I did get the tops on and fit 3 chocolate kisses inside.  For the plate I used the saucer from the Tea For You and Me kit, left it the same size as in the kit, the strawberries fit perfectly.  The bar is the pool stick from The Green Room and the top of it is from the Swirlies collection, oh and I added one of the Breezy Meadow Butterflies.  I did glue a couple of the top pieces together for more strength and then glued it to the pool stick and the whole thing gets glued to the plate.

For the Trendy Twine on the strawberry leaves I used Twisted Lime, just really like that green on green tone for this and the bow at the top is Valentine Cherry Cupcake, just the name makes you want to have some!!  Digital paper is Carta Bella's Beautiful Moments, I don't think I'll ever get tired of this paper, it's so pretty.  The whole project was cut using my Silhouette Cameo, so pieces were print n cut.  Well that's it, a pretty simple but fun Valentine project!
