You are either gonna love me or hate me for this one. I hope it’s the former – but if it’s the latter, I won’t even be mad, because I get it. I totally get it. The internet is replete with donuts. There is no shortage of donut DIYs. So. Many. Damn. Donuts. But alas, I still love them. They haven’t quite reached mason jar levels of market saturation. But it’s getting there. Before the interweb explodes in a volcano of sprinkles and frosting, I’m gonna squeeze in this donut DIY. Because it’s awesome and needs to be made by everyone and their mother. Because your mother loves donuts too. She told me.

Tote bags are such a fun thing to craft, because in the end you have something totally useable and completely unique that no one else has. There’s a good chance you’ll see more totebags in the future. Damask Loves totebags. Consider yourself warned.

Supplies

Here’s what you’ll need:

Howto

There’s really not much work that goes into putting this bag together, since the iron letters do most of the work for you. All you need to do is paint that cute little donut into place and you’re done!

  1. Punch a large circle and small circle from white cardstock and run them through the sticker maker as shown
  2. Adhere the stickers to the bag as shown
  3. Use the foam dauber to apply brown paint
  4. Peel back the larger circle border, but leave the center sticker
  5. Paint pink “frosting”
  6. Peel back the center sticker
  7. (optional) use glitter glue to add sprinkles

  1. Amber, this is the cutest bag! This is on my list of DIY crafts to try! Thanks for the tutorial and I LOVE your new website design!

  2. So cute! I just might make some of these for “teacher gifts”. Cuz like you said – everyone loves donuts. I do wonder what happened to all those donuts you had to buy for the photos?? It would be a dirty rotten shame if they weren’t eaten.

    1. Two Linda comments in a row! Lol! Believe it or not I made every one of those donuts and iced and decorated each one!!! They hung around for weeks since I used them yo style several photos. After that, I’m pretty sure I would have dropped dead from a tummyache if I tried to eat them!

      1. LOL! Two Linda’s…how special is that! Hello Linda D.!

        You know Amber, I just figured that was some of your creative work of confections! Your home-made treats always look so delicious and like they came from your local dessert shop! I wondered the same thing Linda D., who ate all of those donuts. Too bad I am in Atlanta and couldn’t help you dispose of those in an efficient manner. LOL!
