Looking for some new ideas for Valentine boxes? I’m always trying to come up with crafty new ideas for Valentine’s Day and I’ve made everything from a Harry Potter Valentine Box to an adorable Owl Valentine Box. This doughnut was something I came up with out of the blue this year.
I was trying to come up with a few more ideas and saw a doughnut with pink icing. The light bulb lit up over my head and that’s when I decided to make this doughnut valentine box. The great thing about it is that it’s super easy and takes very little time to put together.
Here’s what you’ll need…
(1) Cereal box
(1) piece of 12×18 pink craft foam
(1) piece of 12×18 brown craft foam
*Black craft foam
*Red Craft foam
*Craft foam of various colors for sprinkles
*You don’t need a lot of these craft foam pieces…they can be scraps left over from other projects
Doughnut Valentine Box
Cover the box with white construction paper.
Trace a large circle on brown craft foam and another on pink craft foam. I like to find things in my kitchen to trace since my hand drawn circles turn out lopsided EVERY time! This dinner plate was the perfect size.
I cut straight around the brown circle but made the pink one curved around the edges.
Back to using kitchen objects as tracers…I used this small bowl to trace the doughnut hole…
then cut it out.
I cut eyes and a mouth out of black foam, then used a scrap piece of red to make a small tongue. I hot glued them to the top part of the “icing”.
Next, I cut long, thin strips of craft foam, then cut smaller pieces to resemble sprinkles, You can use any bright colors you have on hand.
Once the sprinkles have been glued on, you’ve got your doughnut. Glue it to the front of the box and this cute doughnut Valentine box is ready for Valentine’s Day!
