Hi, friends! Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it! Teri here with a sweet idea for you! Give your sweetie a donut or two with a couple of cute handmade picks in it!
These donuts picks are easy to make with a few die-cut shapes, stamps, toothpicks, and basic craft supplies.
Create and Embellish the Donut Picks
Start by cutting a couple of large circles and slightly smaller large circles from cardstock. Note: you’ll also want to cut a few from patterned paper.
Cut the circles in half. Decorate some of the half circles of cardstock with half circles of patterned paper.
Decorate the smaller circles with stamping and die-cuts to make a sweet message for your Valentine!
Assemble the Picks
Take the smaller large circle. Flip it over. Adhere a toothpick onto it. I like to hold the toothpick down with Crafty Power Tape and then add a few Adhesive Dots on top. Surround the toothpick with pieces of foam tape.
Adhere the larger half circle to the slightly smaller half circle, sandwiching the toothpick and foam pieces. Complete your donut picks by adding twine and embellishments to them. You can also use them without adding anything!
Use a couple of donut picks to decorate a donut!
You can even get by using just one pick on a small stack of donuts!
I hope today’s tutorial fuels your creative juices! Let me know if you decide to make a few donut picks of your own!
