Aside from your scissors and glue, here's what you need to create Mexican themed Donut Boxes.

The Epson EcoTank 7750* is one of the best printers I ever had - especially since it can print in A3 in an amazing quality. I wrote a review here, in case you are interested.

Let's get started!

Print the Donut Box Template and the Stickers

We are creating a Mexican themed donut box so you have to print the Creative World Tour Mexico Donut Box Printable first. Print the templates on the coloured paper I've added to the PDF and the elements on another paper. Don't worry because instructions are included when you download them from our member's area.

Cut Out the Donut Box Template

Grab your scissor and cut out the donut box template you've printed. If you’re doing this tutorial with your kids, assist them if necessary.

Fold the Donut Box Template

Once you're done cutting, fold the places with the dashed lines. It's better to fold them backwards and forwards because that will make it easier for you to handle later but it's up to you, of course.

Tape the Flaps of the Donut Box

Grab your adhesive tape and put pieces of tape on the little edges. Of course, you can choose to use your glue stick here instead, but I prefer a double-sided tape because it sticks much better on the edges.

Once you've done that, tape the whole thing together by attaching the little edges with the main parts to form a donut box.

These little edges will hold our donut box in place so we have to secure them properly.

Cut Out the Stickers

Now grab the other printout with the images of the cacti and alpaca and cut out the decorations you want for your donut box. Leave some white outline as you cut so it will look like a sticker. Or you can use. e.g. the Silhouette Cameo* and cut out the stickers precisely. 

Add Decorations to the Donut Box

Get your glue stick and glue the elements you chose onto the donut box. For the stickers, it's better to use the glue stick. You can add any sticker you want, but don't overdo it.

Create More Donut Boxes

You can create as many donut boxes as you want. Just print the template, backgrounds and stickers, and do the same as you did with your first donut box. Cut out the donut box templates, fold, and tape the flaps to the inside, then add some stickers.

Enjoy your Donuts!

Now, put the donuts in! And just like that, you're done and you can serve these to your guests, or yourself. Hopefully, you can now create a wonderful time for your kids by letting them have donut boxes in their party, or by creating these with them. And if this did spark some creativity in you, you can use this tutorial with that theme. I hope you enjoyed this part of our Creative Tour to Mexico.

The great thing about our printable is that you can reprint it again and use it for your other creative projects.
