Begin by opening the Donut Box file with Cricut Design Space. The Cricut file is all set for you. Plan on having 5 pieces of the DCWV cardstock. The Rainbow Splash cardstock pad is perfect for many projects. It has a great variety on the pad and I plan on using every sheet. Sometimes you get pads that only give you a few good ones, but this DCWV scrapbook pad is perfection. I used the cloud paper as the inside of the box. I cut two pieces for the lower donut box. I needed a lighter cardstock to allow the Cricut pen to show through. Run the inside of the box with your Xyron Creative Station along with the smaller areas of the bow. Lay the inside of the donut box that you cut with your Cricut and assemble the bottom. Use the Xyron Mega Runner to run adhesive on the tabs of the donut box. Now it's time to put together your Cricut gift bow. There are three X shapes and one I shape. They all have 2 holes that will coordinate with each other. Use the smaller shapes and lay them onto their corresponding shape. It will leave you with a strip on each side of the base paper. You fold the I shape into a circle and then place the brad in the corresponding holes. Then the X shapes will have the four tabs folded in toward each other and you adhere them all to the brad. Work from the smallest to the largest. Fluff your bow to make it how you want. Now add your donut to your donut box that you cut with your Cricut. Eat that delicious donut and enjoy your Cricut donut box that you made!
