Donut Know How Special You Are

Hello friends! Welcome to my project for this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 Cricut Challenge. I am hosting this week's Cricut Cut Challenge with a super simple theme - Spring Anything Goes!  That means you can use any Spring themed cut, color, event, etc. on your project this week.

My project features both sweet Springtime colors AND a spring event.  I made these cute covered mini cups for my daughter's second graders.  The children had a program and their parents were invited to attend, as well as visit their classroom afterwards.  Bethany wanted to have a treat for the children, but also something for the parents.  I suggested donut holes and that I craft these cute cups for the students.

I used two Cricut cartridges for the cups, Close To My Heart Artistry and Basic shapes. My other supplies included the sweet Donut cardstock from Close To My Heart (retired), the Donut stamp and die set, CTMH ink, and the cute cups I found at the Stamper's Convention in Columbia. 

I cut the donut backgrounds using a basic circle.  I cut the yellow banner with Artistry. The donut tops were cut with the CTMH die.  I created a template to cut the cup wraps - probably the most challenging part of the project.  I tied the tags to the cups using pink and white twine. 

Bethany put donut holes for her students in the cups, but also had loose holes for the parents.  I understand the donuts were a hit as was the children's program!

I hope that you are able to find some time this week to join us at Bitten By the Bug 2 .  This challenge is especially easy so hopefully you can get your crafting going! In the meantime, please do go by the BBTB2 blog and check out the design team's fabulous work!!
