Step 1

Cut out your strawberry pattern pieces.  Start by holding the strawberry base on red felt and simply cut around it.

You do not need to cut it perfectly because you’ll have a chance to trim it up before you’re done.

Use the strawberry pattern to cut out the strawberry shape.  Trim it a bit more so it’s well inside the strawberry.  You do not want it to hang over the sides anywhere or it will make a sticky mess.

Step 9

Gently place a piece of parchment paper on top of everything.  Iron it according to the directions on your Heat and Bond.  It should be less than 15 seconds.

Try not to move the iron around too much or you will make the layers slide around out of place.
