Strawberry Shortcut Card and Bag


Print & Cut Strawberry Shortcake Card and Gift Bag by Annie Williams


I don’t know about you, but I was thrilled to see the new Strawberry Shortcake designs in the store recently.  Although she and her friends look a little different these days (I actually like their makeovers!), it still brings back fond memories.  My little niece shares my enthusiasm, so I created this card and little gift bag for her upcoming fifth birthday with a little bit of paper piecing and a whole lot of Print & Cut.

The Strawberry Shortcake and background designs come ready-to-go as Print & Cut designs, but I wanted to create a matching building block for her to sit on (with a 5 to indicate which birthday it was).  I started by simply drawing two rounded rectangles that I could layer to create the block, and typed a “5” with the Text Tool using the aptly named LW Block Font.  To be sure that these elements matched perfectly, I filled each shape with colors found in the other designs.  To do this, click on the shape you want to fill (arrow 1), open the Fill Color Menu (arrow 2), click on the eyedropper tool (arrow 3), and then click anywhere within your other designs to select you desired color (arrow 4).  When you are finished with filling all of your shapes, print your designs with registration marks turned on and then send them to your Silhouette to cut.

For my card, I printed the background, Strawberry Shortcake, block, and mat for my sentiment all on white adhesive cardstock for easy assembly.  I toned down the bright background pattern a bit by layering a scalloped rectangle frame on top cut from vellum before adding the rest of my elements.  My sentiment was super intricate at this size (~1 inch tall), so I cut this out of Printable Gold Foil and added a few gold sequins to match.

The matching gift bag is a Print & Cut file, so this came together in no time.  After printing it out on some medium-weight textured white cardstock, I just cut, folded, and glued it together.  Then I added one of the oval designs that comes with the bag to the front and attached handles I made from some white grosgrain ribbon.  I’ll be filling this bag with lots of stickers and other goodies for my niece’s birthday, but I can guarantee it’ll probably turn into a little tote for her dolls.  🙂

Hello Silhouette fans! I'm so excited to be back on the Creative Team again this year. I am a scientist by training, but I have always been interested in art and art history as well. I enjoy sharing fun gift, home decor, and handmade card ideas over on my blog. My projects often reflect my other interests which include outdoorsy things like hiking, biking, and canoeing as well as a love of travel, small towns, and nature photography. I've been happily married for nearly 10 years to a man who is incredibly tolerant of my ever-growing craft supply stash...and we recently welcomed a new little boy into our lives as well.

  1. So cute! I may have to make one for my daughter’s fifth birthday party! I loved Strawberry Shortcake so much when I was a little girl too…

  2. So cute! I love the little coordinating block you made for her to sit on. I haven’t shown my girls these new Strawberry Shortcake designs yet; I’m afraid of the long list of requests I’ll get. They love watching the show. 🙂

    1. Thank you Kelly! I’ve already been asked to work on more Strawberry Shortcake projects… 🙂

  3. Totally in love with this! Love how you did the block for her to sit on and personalized with recipients age…too cute!

  4. The link of the applicable design becomes invalid and is not displayed in a design of Strawberry Shortcake designs either.

    1. Hmm…I’m not sure which link you’re referring to because they all seem to work for me. Maybe try again? Sorry I can’t be of more help!

  5. Well I have also clicked on the links and can’t find these designs, there are 6 other characters but not this one

    1. Hi Wendy,

      The licensor has only granted us license to sell the designs in the US & Canada which may explain why the design isn’t showing up for some people, and is for others. Sorry for any confusion.

      1. Hi I did wonder whether it was something like that, thanks for letting me know.

  6. Thank you so much for such creative inspiration!

  7. Hi Annie, I’m making a strawberry shortcake party for my daughter, but these shapes do not appear for purchase in my silhouette store.

    How do I purchase them? I’m in Brazil and this is difficult stuff of this theme.Can you help me?
