Doughnut Box Template

Carrying on from my previous post, I am pleased to announce that my Doughnut Box template is now available in my Etsy shop. It comes as two PDFs - one for the doughnut box and one for the icing.

If you would like to make one of these amazing little boxes for yourself, then you will need:
  • Doughnut Box and Icing PDF templates
  • Coloured cardstock (160-240gsm recommended)
  • White printer paper
  • Craft knife and / or scissors
  • Scoring tool
  • Ruler
  • Double-sided tape
  • PVA glue

First, you will need to print the Doughnut Box template onto the coloured card and the Doughnut Icing template onto the white paper. Then cut everything out.

Apply small amounts of double-sided tape to the areas marked on the template. Then, starting with the base, stick the corner of the second flap onto the first, pressing it down firmly. Continue in this way, flattening the shape slightly as you go, until a circle is formed.

Secure the end tab with either glue or double-sided tape, and ensure that all tabs are securely stuck down.

Repeat with lid.

Next, using PVA glue, stick disc A onto the underside of the base, ensuring that the circle is in the centre.

Score and bend the centre tube flaps outwards and secure the ends together to form a tube. Push disc B over the tube and stick to the inside of the base with PVA glue.

Stick disc C to the inside of the lid, ensuring that the circle is in the centre. Next, apply plenty of PVA glue to your choice of icing and stick to the top of the lid, pressing all of the edges down firmly.

Your doughnut box is complete!
