The votes are in and the battle between donuts & balloons has a winner. Donuts.(If you have no clue what I’m talking about, check out last night’s post on the Damask Love Facebook Page!)

Today’s project is embarrassingly simple, which means I will accept zero excuses for not running and making a pile of these…stat!

As you probably already know, every month I bring you a little dose of Martha Stewart crafting along with the rest of the 12 Months of Martha blogger team. Currently, I am mildly obsessed with the Martha Stewart Glitter Glue which is leaps and bounds better than other glitter glues out there. The fine tip gives you lots of controls the high glitter concentration means you get plenty of sparkle.  Ok…commercial over…let’s make something.

Simple Donut Valentine's | Damask Love BlogSimple Donut Valentine's | Damask Love BlogYep – that’s it for the supplies. Just three things…well…I guess you’ll need a pair of scissors, but I’m sure you have those floating around the house.

Simple Donut Valentine's | Damask Love Blog{1} Use the circle cutter to cut a 1″ circle in the center of your cardstock, then, WITHOUT moving the circle cutter, cut again at the 4 3/8 notch.

{2} Repeat step one on a piece of light pink cardstock (or the color of your choice)

{3} On the pink cardstock, use scissors to cut a wavy outer edge

{4} Use a makeup sponge and a brown inkpad to gently apply brown shading to the edge of the light brown cardstock. This step is optional but gives your paper donut a freshly baked look.

{5} Adhere the “icing” to the “donut”

{6} Use glitter glue to add sprinkles and allow the glitter glue to dry for 30-60 minutes.

  1. Dear Martha and friends,

    Amber totally convinced me that I need a circle cutter to make donut crafts!!

    Seriously cute idea. We’re going to adapt it to fit a 9-yo birthday party. Will send along the pictures! xoxo

  2. I don’t know about all these sweets – cupcakes, doughnuts – I think I’m gonna have to bake some cookies. LOL
    I love the doughnut valentine’s. And I agree – the Martha Stewart glitter glues are fabulous. They work so well and I love the variety of colors. Thanks for another great idea!

    1. Hi Lisa! To give your envelope a little depth create it as you usually would on the envelope punch board, and then score 1/4″ inch from each scored side. That’s it!

  3. I absolute love this project! The donuts look so real and yummy. Also these would be perfect to give out on June 6 (which is national donut day)!

  4. Cute project! Can you tell me who makes the “happy valentine’s day” stamp that you used on the back of the donut?

    Thanks 🙂
