~ Brown Sugar and Cinnamon ~ Embellished Donut wrappers

Good day to you --

guess what...

Yesterday my awesome sister made some doughnuts. doughnutty-doughnuts, with brown sugar and cinnamon. I can taste it just telling you about it.

well, I can't bear to be unkind and talk about doughnuts when you can't taste them with me, so I'll move on.

we wanted to pack some of the doughnuts for some nice ladies who totally deserve them. donuts... who doesn't love them!! So I had a brainwave to use my bitty glassine sacks to pack them... and adorn with fun bits of doilies, patterned paper, baker's twine, scrunchy ribbon, and lil tags and flowers.



And, a card created for mum to send to a special sister who needs prayer..


Patterned paper from BasicGrey's curio collection, a chipboard frame from this etsy store... and scrunched seam binding, roses, posies, buttons, brads, a trinket pin, and more...

I have to run now, but I'll be back soon.
Thank you for dropping by!

p/s -- just because I can, and I feel like being mean to you... :) because they're awesomely good and you can be awesomely jealous...

brown sugar. cinnamon. nothing like it.

I'm going to have one now.

*munch munch*

    I can't believe you are only 18. You have a great design eye! Loved looking at all your creations.
    P.S. Those doughnuts look good too. Makes me want one.

  2. You are just so incredibly sweet and thoughtful! I bet the ladies loved their treat bags and the delicious donuts. How nice of both you and your sister.

  3. I wish my music students would bring me doughnuts!!
    Beautiful work, as always!!

  4. Viola...please forgive me for not visiting earlier...I've been so stinkin' busy!! And, darn it...look at all the beautiful creations I've missed!! Your packages look DIVINE!! That card is probably one of my favorites yet...but then again...the one in the post before this is just as lovely. I also really like what you submitted for Mona's challenge--so bold for you...although you held fast to that true Viola softness--even with RED!! I was hoping to finally get in on one of her challenges--I'm almost done with my project--but I'm also almost out of time!! Better get going!
