DIY strawberry made of paper. Manufacture

For the manufacture of strawberries, we will use two colors of paper: red (pink) and green. The size of one module in our case is 7.5 by 5 cm. (Modules can be made of another size and a different color). We need 46 red modules and 7 green modules.

1. Assemble the green and red modules according to the scheme. Schemes for assembling modules can be found here.

2. Connect the three rows of 13 modules using Method 2 (see module mounting) and close the chain in a circle (see photo).

3. Turn the resulting figure with the short sides of the modules up.

4. Unscrew the workpiece while simultaneously pressing on the center of the figure from below and pressing on the edges from above.

5. Assemble the fourth row of modules, putting them staggered on the short side out (see photo).

6. The final row consists of 7 modules. They must be put on, skipping two corners of the previous row and trying to bring the modules as close as possible (see photo).

7. Make leaflets. To do this, collect 7 green modules.

8. Insert them (short side up) through one into the pockets of the first row of strawberries (see main photo).

9. In the same way, you can make more strawberries.

If you attach a tail to a strawberry (ribbon, rope ...), then you can hang it on a Christmas tree or make a whole garland.

And here is our strawberry in a basket. How to make a basket out of modules, see here.
