<<< Let me take you back... way back.. to the mid-1980's when Eric and I worked together at a Structural Engineering firm in Lafayette, CA. We worked together for 7 years - every day - it was amazing... I loved every single day!!!
Back then, the big treat of the week was PINK BOX FRIDAY! You know.. the wonderful, sugary treats from the bakery that the boss brings in ... always in the Pink Box! I think they were from The Cake Box... best danishes and treats you've ever tasted!
Have you ever worked in an office with the Pink Box Friday tradition?
Now, 30 years later, Eric is carrying on that tradition in his current Engineering office, and he picks up donuts every Friday to bring to the office... in the Pink Box no less! :)
About a week ago, the office celebrated the 2 co-owners birthdays (since they are only a day apart!) with birthday lunch out, special treats and Gabe (one of the owners) got his OWN box of a dozen cake donuts with chocolate frosting and peanuts! Those are his faves, so he got his own box!
I made him a special birthday greeting to put on his special box with my punch art version of peanut covered chocolate donuts!
I made the other co-owner, Justen, a shaker birthday card with a punch art donut.
These cards feature the really festive and fun "Cherry on Top" paper stack with fun printed party designs! I also created my own punch art donuts... the instructions are here for you below:
You only need 2 punches and scissors to create the donuts really easily.. use any paper, any color, any pattern to create a variety of "flavors" of donuts!
On the donut below, I stamped "sprinkles" from the Celebrate Today stamp set (pg 102 annual catalog), but you could use any number of "sprinkle" images, dots, etc.
So what do you think... gold sequins for peanuts? Too silly?
I knew that Eric was getting a box of a dozen chocolate covered peanut donuts for Gabe.. so I did my best to create chocolate covered peanut donuts with the Stampin' Up! supplies at my desk :)
Yep, I put each individual sequin on with a dot of glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen.... I decided right then and there I could probably never be one of those people who hand-beads or sequins a ball gown... know what I mean!? :) Click to view 3 TIPS for USING the FINE TIP GLUE PEN.
I created the shaker card by filling the opening with Stampin' Up! Metallic Sequins and Brights Sequins (pg 160 of the annual catalog). A window sheet seals all the fun inside!
