Cut a Petal at an angle in the bottom level of the strawberry. Do the same in the opposite side.
Now Cut again in between the two cut petals. Do the same in the opposite side so that you get 4 petals.
Move up slightly and cut a petal in between the bottom 2 petals. Do same to the opposite side. Again repeat the process as shown in the lower level of petals till you get 4 petals. Sometimes you might have to stop at 3 petals if the strawberry is small.
Right at top make to small straight parallel cuts. Gently spread the petals open with the knife.
