Hi! Amador here and today for the Something Sweet theme I wanted to create an inspirational banner for my craft room with the Love Bites collection. I wanted it to have a whimsical and delicious feel to it. So I went with one of my favorite treats! Of course that would be delicious donuts!! Whether you spell it donuts or doughnuts they are just as delicious.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut my donuts. To save on ink and make it much easier for me to assemble the donuts I imported the 8x8 Love Bites paper patterns into the icing of the donuts and cut the donut form on kraft cardstock.
For the letters of my quote I used a basic font and filled it with the mini black heart pattern from the Black Hearts Paper collection. The mini hearts are perfect, they give the letters a heart polka dot look. I backed the letters with black cardstock to make the mini hearts pop.
Once the donuts were strung on the twine I decided to hang it from the mason jar light strand in my craft room. This way I can see it every time I enter to get crafty!
Each other donut is a solid full donut and a donut with a bite taken out. The aqua twine coordinates perfectly with the colors of the collection.
The patterns from the Papercakes Love Bites collection are sweet and delicious and make me smile every time I see it. I made extra donuts to make another banner for a friend and to have donuts for scrapbook embellishments!
I posted a video on on my youtube channel “ amadoreros” where I show the process of my Donut banner. I walk through the process that used to make these delicious paper treats. Please watch below.
Thanks for stopping by, let me know what you think of my banner!
