Football Box Card

One of the things I love about creating box cards is that they also make great party table decor.  Since they are 3D they can add a little something special to your Super Bowl spread.  Using Core’dinations cardstock allows you to tailor the colors to your favorite team.  You can guess from mine which team is our household favorite.

Step 1: Use a die cutting machine to cut your pieces out.  Having trouble with the texture and getting a clean cut?  Here’s how I ensure a clean cut on my Silhouette machine:  Set the actual blade at 4, the speed at 3, and the thickness at 33.  Also set it to double cut.  I have had zero issues cutting my Core Cardstock this way!

Step 2: Assemble the card base and add Polka Dot Pops to base.

Football Helmet Centerpiece

Mary Pat here with you today and I love making centerpieces for my table using fun designs along with my Core’dinations Cardstock.  I live in a house filled with guys and it seems like football is ALWAYS on the television.  I love having friends and family over to watch the games.  For each game I like to make little treat helmets that hold little candies.  I put these on for centerpiece of the food table.

I made my helmet for the Cincinnati Bengals!
