Print and cut these cute Donut Valentine’s to use on quick gifts for your gal pals, kids or school classrooms! This post contains affiliate links.
Two years ago my little friend Zach really wanted to take small packages of donuts (like this) to school to pass out to his classmates. Super-fun, but not super Valentiney. I created a couple fun printable donut Valentine’s tags to attach to the packages for his classroom.
I came across the printables this week when preparing Valentine’s for a few friends and realized I never got around to sharing those Valentine’s here on the site. Better rectify that one. So, today I’ve teamed up with more than 40 other bloggers to share some fun DIY Valentine project ideas!
Donut Valentine’s Printable
Free Donut Printable – Donut You Know or Donut LOVE
Color Printer (this is the printer that I use – it’s great for small jobs like this)
Paper Trimmer or Scissors
Tiny Hole Punch
Ice Cream Cups (optional)
I’m going to be honest. In the past, I have been accused of producing Valentine’s on steroids in the past. The statement may or may not have been made for the effort put into the classroom gifts I put together, or last-minute ideas that kept me up until 2 a.m. Either way, I was determined to play it a bit more low-key this year. This particular Valentine looks like a million bucks, but it’s super simple.
I made the graphics on my computer and printed them out at home on plain white cardstock. I use an HP office printer for small jobs like this and it always does the trick, but you could easily run over to the printshop if needed.
I can’t cut a straight line to save my soul, so I used this Fiskars trimmer to get the little cards cut to size. I specifically didn’t include cut marks so that you could size the tags to your liking with a bit of trim work. I cut the Donut Know Valentine’s a bit skinnier and kept the Donut LOVE square, but you can play around with it.
I packaged the donuts up two ways…The Donut LOVE Vlaentine’s were placed in cute little polka dot cellophane bags (similar to these) while I put the others in little ice cream cups (similar to these) prior to putting them in the bag (like this).I used a tiny hole punch (I seriously use this more than a regular sized punch), because I tied everything off with a bit of baker’s twine and didn’t want to leave a bit hole that could rip.
They took less than 10 minutes to print and package up and I have cute donut Valentine’s all ready to go!
