Donut Hole and Jelly Labels How-To

Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2010

You'll need:
Ink-jet printer

8 1/2-by-11-inch self-adhesive label stock (Eunice used Strathmore writing label in Bright White; 4 labels per sheet, calculate quantity accordingly -- we recommend allowing a few extra sheets for misprints and other mistakes)

Fiskars rotary trimmer with scalloped blade

Craft knife

Metal ruler or straightedge

Cutting mat

1/4-pound glassine pastry bags (available at PaperMart)

1. Print labels. Download the PDF with Eunice's design, and print out the labels on your ink-jet printer.

2. Trim labels. Use the craft knife and metal ruler to cut between the crop marks on the sides of the labels (do not cut all the way to the edge of the paper; this will leave the crop marks intact for subsequent cuts). Then use the ruler and the scalloped blade of the rotary trimmer to cut the tops and bottoms of labels.

3. Trim glassine bags. Use the scalloped blade of the rotary trimmer to trim the top 1/4 inch off the glassine bags for a cute scalloped edge.

4. Apply labels. Peel backing from each label and apply to the front of a glassine bag (we applied the label centered from side to side and closer to the bottom of the bag). Fill bags with donut holes.
