Bitten By The Bug 2--Strawberry

Welcome to another Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge. I have been taking a few weeks off here and there lately from Bitten By The Bug but today I am back with a project picked by our team member Jeri! She chose the Strawberry on Simply Charmed. I got an idea right away for this one--thanks Jeri for taking the pressure off of me, LOL! Remember to go back to BBTB2 to play along with us in the challenge and see what all my other Design Team partners have made with this strawberry.
I am not a big fan of strawberries--either is my son he always tells everyone he is allergic to them...he's not :) But strawberry to me means Twizzlers. This is one candy that everyone in my house likes so you can usually find some stashed away. I decided to make my mom a few little gifts to give to neighbors that have been giving her a little help lately. 
**Edited** After I posted this post I realized a mistake I made :) See the picture below?? I guess the little bow had fell off of this one before I took the picture, of course, it is the one I did a close-up of!! Sadly, they have already been given away and I couldn't take another picture....sorry :)
Simply charmed puts little faces on everything, which while cute is really not me so I just hid them in hide contour on my Gypsy.
