Welcome to Stampin' Connection Nichole. I hope you have lots of fun here and find lots of information and inspiration.
I did a google search for " strawberry template" and found one that works. I cut out the red parts and ran it through the dotted embossing folder.
I used the crop-a-dial to punch a hole in each petal. I gathered the tops of the strawberries with linen thread. I crisscross the thread from side to side to draw up the 5 sides and left the top opening open a little. When I first started, I was trying to close the top of the strawberry completely. I found the berries looked better if I left a gap in the top where the 5 petals come together. The gap is covered by the top piece. Then I took my grossgrain down and back up through the loosly crosscrossed linen threads and pushed both ends of the Old Olive grosgrain up through a hole in the 5 petal punched top piece.
I probably made 6 or 7 strawberries that looked pretty bad before I got the look I wanted. It take a ltitle practiced; but once you do a few, it gets easier. You can always use your "mistakes" to fill the bottom of your basket to make it look fuller.
