Super Bowl

Now there’s a headline I never thought I’d write! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m so not interested in watching sports what so ever. To me it’s something you do and not something you watch on TV. It’s just too boring.

Sunday February 2nd., I’m told, is Super Bowl Sunday in the US and a girlfriend of mine loves it. She’s been helping me out quite a lot with the move, so now it’s payback time ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve made her Football stuff before but when I saw the new cool Football files from Simply Crafty Svgs, I knew I had to make them for her – so I did.

Let’s start with the smallest first – theย Mini Football Treat Box (Freebie):

I made two – one for my friend and one for her brother, who will be watching the game with her.

Made from Gold Glitter paper from Recollections, White Glitter paper from Craft Smith and black POW Glitter paper from AC along with a Print and Cut sentiment that I ran through my Minc to add Gold Foil. The tag is tied to the box with a piece of hemp cord.

Very easy and I’m very surprised how well the glitter paper took to the glue. Now I just have to find some little treat to put insideโ€ฆ..

Next is theย Football Goal Post Box:

This very fun and inventive treat box, is made from AC Cardstock, White Glitter paper from Recollections and Green Glitter paper from DCWV Inc + a small piece of acetate.

It was very easy to assemble and I didn’t watch the video until after I made it ๐Ÿ˜€ As you can see I did make an error but I thought the slits in the Football was to hold the acetate and not guidelines for the white end pieces. Go figure! Oh well – it works just fine ๐Ÿ™‚

The Foam Finger (ID #241075 by Photoplay) and the Pennant (ID #283540 by Lisa Norris) are both from the Silhouette Design Store. I made them as Print and Cut and ran them through the Minc to add the Gold Foil. Not perfectly covered but I blame my printer being too cheap ๐Ÿ˜€ I did make a back side too with out graphic so I could sandwich a toothpick in between.

Finally for theย Football Helmet:

This is also a treat box and I put some crackers inside for the two to munch on.

It’s made from AC Cardstock, Gold and White Glitter paper from Recollections and Black POW from AC.

I’m really surprised how easy this was to make. I did watch Sandy’s video as I believed it would be harder to assemble, but no. Very easy and such a cool design too. I’m so impressed with her inventive and amazing ideas.

I chose the gold color for the treat box and helmet as I have no idea what team she roots on, who would make it to the finals or how any of the teams’ logos look like ๐Ÿ˜€ heh heh Gold is for winners – right?

These were so much fun to make and as I ran out of time, I didn’t have time to ink the edges – but you can’t really tellโ€ฆ.or? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I really hope she and her brother will love these and the goodies I’ll put inside and that they will have a cozy and enjoyable Sunday night/Monday morning ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks for joining me today. I’ve enjoyed seeing all the Helmets and boxes already made by lots of people – hope you enjoy mine.

See you next time โค
