One of ALL of our favorite holidays is just around the corner. I’m talking about National Doughnut Day (Friday, June 5th). What better way to celebrate this sweet treat, than by having a doughnut (of course) and a glass of milk paired with these oh so fabulous, doughnut straws.
Doughnut you want to know how to make them (insert laughter), scroll on down for the delicious details.
Supplies you will need to recreate these doughnut straws:
- Design #77592
- Paper Straws
- Card Stock
Start by opening up the doughnut design in Silhouette Studio and size the doughnuts down to about 2 inches wide. Select the fill color icon (top right and furthest to the left) and give your tasty treats some nice doughnut-y colors. For the base of the doughnut I used color #F6E7D9 , for the frosting I used color #F7ACB1 , and for the sprinkles I used color #’s C7E6D7 and FEEA54.
- You can also see that I added an additional circle to the middle of the doughnut for the straw to poke through.
- Before printing you will need to add registration marks and you can add those by selecting the ‘open the registration marks window’ icon, which is located at the top right of your screen. Be sure to double check that all doughnuts are located within the registration marks, or your Silhouette won’t cut them.
- Now it’s as easy as sticking a straw through a doughnut.
I know my doughnut festivities are going to include these doughnut straws and maybe yours will too. Who wouldn’t like chomping on a delicious doughnut while sipping a yummy beverage through a doughnut straw on National Doughnut Day? Or, really, any day?:)
