As I’m sure you are aware, a very important holiday is right around the corner—national doughnut day! To celebrate this momentous occasion, I thought I would share a new, tasty design. Make these scrumptious doughnut boxes for all the “sweetest” people in your life!
Like this design? Consider leaving a tip.
Not that I’m particularly picky when it comes to baked goods, but I do love a good doughnut! And while my kids don’t agree on most things (especially the kinds of foods they each like), they can all be persuaded to put their shoes away and clean up after themselves if a trip to Krispy Kreme is the reward.
So, this is definitely one of those projects that the whole family can enjoy!
How to Make It
1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the pieces of the doughnut boxes.
Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending them through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.
2. Start by attaching the rounded sides of your box and lid. Each side consists of two pieces. Fold the little tabs, and attach them one or two at a time to the base/lid. Attach the second piece, and finish going all the way around.
3. Attach the liners to the inside of the box and lid.
Layer the frosting pieces together, and attach them to the top. Your box is finished!
Maybe I’m just always hungry when I am planning my design projects because I seem to make a fair amount of food-related creations. Just last year, I shared some cupcake treat boxes that would pair really well with these doughnuts!
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other 3D freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy making your very own, doughnut boxes! I hope you have as much fun putting them together as I did. Be sure to share your stunning results with me on Instagram!
