Every year, I try to come up with a really good last-minute Valentine idea. Something you can whip up the night before, long after the craft store has closed. This donut valentine is perfect! It will work with a fresh batch of heavenly Krispy Kremes, but will be just as charming with a box of “donettes” from the grocery store (or the gas station!).

This I think we can agree on: everyone loves donuts. So, if you want to win over your Valentine, the odds are in your favor that a ribbon-clad donut will do the trick.

This might appear to be a very simple Valentine and happily, I can tell you it most definitely is. Bonus? A free printable of the tags!

So grab a dozen donuts (plus some extras because I can’t resist), and let’s get started.

Supplies:

- donuts
- glassine bags
- hole punch
- ribbon
- baker’s twine
- free printable tags

First, put donuts into the glassine bags. Try not to lick your fingers every time. Friends don’t like pre-licked donuts.

Fold the bag over and punch two holes. Thread the ribbon through and tie.

Cut out a tag from the downloadable document. Punch a hole, string it with baker’s twine and thread it through the same holes used for the ribbon.

See that? Simple as can be. And easily adaptable with grocery store items if you find yourself putting these together after hours. Happy making. And happy Valentine’s Day!

Hi Gabrielle,
this isn’t your usual comment, I would think, but the ad appearing at the top of your blog looked sketchy. It looked to me like I was supposed to take the scissors and cut the straps off the woman’s bikini. I’m pretty sure that this isn’t one of your sponsors;) Maybe its my ISP and not your blog, but I thought that something may have hacked its way in. Or maybe I have a virus, but since I have a Mac, I wouldn’t think so. Anyway, I thought you would like to know.

Love this! Definitely going to bring up a box of donuts to the teachers’ lounge at my daughter’s school with this tag on it!

These are so cute! I really like the teachers’ lounge idea, too. (And what is it about red and white baker’s twine that makes everything look so special?)
