Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m making 2018 Super Bowl Football Decorations for our neighborhood get-together. I saw the popcorn box and football flag on the Facebook Cricut – The Official Page!
Above are two screenshots – one of the popcorn box and football flags – one for the ‘concession stand’ banner. If you have Cricut Design Space, the popcorn box and football flag file link is https://design.cricut.com/#/design/82132882. The concession stand banner is a Cricut Access project called ‘Concession Stand’.
Here are the banner pieces. I used Close To My Heart cardstock in Chocolate and White Daisy. I changed the file to cut the letters through the Chocolate layer rather than cut them them out of white and then put them on the Chocolate – way easier assembly, imo. This also eliminated a layer – making the individual banner flags less thick.
This was such a simple project – I attached the Chocolate pieces on to the White Daisy layers – it was a little tedious inserting the letters. I used tweezers, dotted glue on the back of each letter and placed them in the openings.
In the bottom photo, I stapled the banner to pieces of twine with my mini stapler – I’ve found that tape just doesn’t hold the pieces on the twine.
Next are the popcorn boxes. There are only two pieces (on the left) that are folded on their scorelines, and the stitches are added.
Finally, I glued the sides together, forming the box, and then glued the bottom together so it doesn’t fall apart. Here’s a finished box – isn’t it adorable???
Here’s my football party setup. I didn’t explain the football flag assembly – all you do is put some glue on the football, wrap each one around a straw or drink stir stick, fold them over and voile!!
