Donut You Want a Sweet Birthday!?🍩

Hello friends and happy Friday!  Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead as we head into Valentine’s Day on Monday!  With this holiday, I’m always reminded by the sweet treats and memories of my children passing out their Valentines, making special boxes to hold them in and classroom parties with lots of goodies!  I thought it would be fun to incorporate those thoughts into a fun birthday set and a small treat with NO ‘REAL’ SUGAR ADDED!

I can never turn down a good donut, how about you?  I had so much fun creating this set with the Taylored Expressions Donut Days Cling & Clear Combo and decorating them!  This was created with the February #TEMakerChallenge color combo and theme in mind when putting the set together.  I’ve used both the TE Spearmint & Peaches ‘N Cream ink and cardstock for these.  I’ve added some Chocolate Truffle, Toffee and White EP as well.

To create the “donut box” on the card, I’ve stamped the TE Argyle stamp only without using the stencils and then I’ve cut it out with the TE Box Top Stacklets die to give the frame look for the donuts to be placed in!  (Note the small treat container was decorated on the front with the left over middle piece from the frame…so save everything!)  I then took the stamped frame and ran the TE Pierced Lattice Cutting Plate over it for an added design.  To assemble the box of donuts, I took a piece of tissue paper, crumpled it up and glued the decorated donuts together over it.  The back of the frame with foam tape was then centered over the donuts so it was popped up.  I ripped the excess tissue paper and attached the card together.  I used some of the TE Peaches ‘N Cream cardstock and white heat embossed the TE Mini Strips Donut Worry and cut them out with the TE Mini Strips die.


I found this really fun video tutorial for a Hand Sanitizer PocketBac box container using my envelope punch board.  (CLICK NAME FOR THE TUTORIAL!)  I always love finding new ways to use a tool I have especially in a totally different way than what it was intended for!   I didn’t wrap decorative paper around mine like she did, but like I mentioned above, I saved the center of the cut out frame and cut it down to size to decorate the front.  I took one of the sentiments and donuts left over from the card, wrapped some twine around it and tied it so the bow is centered inside the donut hole.

I do love me a good pun…so please feel free to pun away my friends!!😅  Maybe you can come up with a “hole in one”! 

I hope you’ve enjoyed my birthday sweet treats today and thanks so much for stopping in!

  2. Even the names of the cardstock colors sound good enough to eat! LOL This is such a clever little combo of a card and special treat holder! Those tiny donuts are simply so cute popping out of the window you created. This will just delight the recipient I’m sure!


  3. We tend not to celebrate Valentine’s in the same way here so I enjoyed reading about your memories of your children and Valentines. Hold onto those memories Vicki x. Yes I love doughnuts, usually just the sugar ones but wouldn’t say no to any types….lol.
    I love your box of doughnuts and how you’ve decorated them and the addition of the tissue is creative. What a great idea with the hand sanitiser gift box too x. I enjoyed reading your post and thank you for the fabulous inspiration Vicki x Happy Valentine’s x.


  4. Oh what a fun card and love the hand sanitizer holder – we all still use that stuff. I’m going to go check out the directions on how to make that. The donuts look good enough to eat – and love your design. TFS this great set.


  5. the card is gorgeous, love those subtle colors you used and such a pretty design and such a neat idea the little holder for the sanitizer is. Such pretty work and it was so fun many many years ago decorating a holder for the valentines and what fun it was when we got to have the party and get our packet of valentines! You took me back to a happy place for sure!


  6. Great description for making this amazing set. I love your card and box. They look really great. And it’s a really great way to make Valentine’s Day sweets.


  7. Adorable donut box! The whole project is sweet. It’s always extra special to decorate “ordinary” objects like the antibacterial bottle. I can’t wait to catch up on all the other creations I’ve missed!
