This is a fun set of projects I made last winter for Core'dinations and Darice. With football season upon us I thought I would share again. This set of projects was super fun and easy to create and can be made in your favorite teams colors. Thanks for stopping by.
Materials needed to make your own Football Party Supplies:
- Core’dinations Cardstock Neutrals
- Core’dinations Cardstock Spotted
- Core’dinations Sand it Set
- Darice Hemp Cord
- Hole Punch
- Die Cut Machine (I used my Cricut)
Step 1: Create pennant template by cutting a triangle 5×7 inches.
Step 2: Trace template onto green Core’dinations Spotted paper. I was able to get five pennants onto one 12×12 sheet. For this banner you will need a total of seven pennants.
Step 3: After cutting out the pennants add strips of White paper from the Core’dinations Neutrals to create yard lines. I cut my strips 1/4 inch wide and trimmed to fit.
Step 4: Use Die Cut machine or punches to create the circles and letters for each pennant from both the white Core’dinations Neutrals paper and orange Spotted paper. The orange circles were cut to 2 1/4 inches, the white circles to 2 inches and the letters to 1 1/2 inches.
Step 6: Add holes to each pennant and string together using the Darice Hemp Cord. I also added a football that I cut using my die cut machine for added interest.
Treat Holder Instructions:
Step 1: Cut treat holder shape with electronic cutter or by hand using templates readily available on the internet (search for “popcorn box template”) using medium brown paper from the Core’dinations Neutrals pack.
Step 2: Sand using the Sand-it Gadget and remove excess paper dust with the Dust Buddy. I love how the Dust Buddy removes all the paper fibers from both my project and work space. The sanding gives the cardstock a nice weathered texture, similar to a football.
Step 3: To create laces on your “football” treat holder, cut strips of white cardstock from the Core’dinations Neutrals 1/4 x 1 inch. ( you will need six strips for each box)
Step 4: If you would like to add additional stripes to your “football” those are also cut at 1/4 inch and can be wrapped around the box and trimmed to fit.
Additional project: To create football picks for the cupcakes, or they would be fun in sandwiches, I simply cut additional footballs with my electronic cutter and attached them to toothpicks with a bit of glue.
