Texans Football Treat Box

Is crafting as therapeutic for you as it is for me?  I've been super-busy preparing for our upcoming MOPS semester and for a friend's baby shower, so my Cricut has had to take a siesta for the past week or so.  And -- you know what? -- I've been a very cranky, unhappy person!  Maybe it's just withdrawal, but I tend to believe this obsession hobby makes me a better person.  (Or, at least, a more fun person to be around -- and hubby agrees.)

I did find time on Saturday to make a little something for hubby.  I've been wanting to do a 3D item, and this football box was an easy, fun project to celebrate the start of the NFL pre-season.  Hubby is a die-hard Houston Texans fan, of course!

Project Details:
  • Papers - brown cardstock by Me & My Big Ideas; all other cardstock by Recollections
  • Cricut Cuts - football box from Wrap It Up, page 70; font from Birthday Bash
  • Other - doodling with white Gelly Roll pen
This little box was super easy; the entire project took just an hour, start-to-finish.  The blue and red papers are an addition to the box pattern, and I doodled line marks and yard numbers to make it look like a football field.  (If I were to make another, I'd make the band green, though.)  I filled the box with blue and red Jolly Ranchers.

Hope you enjoy this little project; I think hubby did.  Now onto figure out a challenge or two to get my creative juices flowing again!
