Scented Button Strawberry

Last week we were ALL about strawberries. After enjoying several bowls full of the fresh variety we decided to create the kind of sweet treat that would stick around a lot longer. This beautiful berry even smells like the real deal.

What You'll Need
White Cardstock (or use a leftover cereal box)
Red paint + paintbrush
Strawberry Jello or Kool-Aid powder
Black Buttons
White Glue
Green Construction Paper
Green Pipe Cleaner

1. Cut a strawberry shape from the white cardstock. Paint the shape a bright, beautiful red.
2. While the paint is still wet sprinkle generously with the strawberry scented powder. Gently shake off excess.3. Glue black buttons sporadically throughout. Cut out a leaf shape from the construction paper and a stem from the pipe cleaner and adhere to the top to complete your strawberry.
Happy Crafting!!
