Wanna learn how to make
your own Superbowl Party Favors?

Here’s what you need:
Brown kraft paper
Football image for tracing
DMC embroidery floss (#841)
Embellishments (to decorate your football)
Candy (your choice)


Begin by folding the kraft paper in half. Trace your football image and cut.
{I do it this way so the footballs are symmetric.}

Now you have two footballs. Place them on top of each other. Thread your needle with the embroidery floss. #841 is the color that most closely matches the kraft paper…trust me. =)

Next start stitching up your football. I used a simple hand stitch. Be sure to leave a small opening at the top so you can fill with candy.

Once you sew up to the small opening, fill your football with candy. I chose Reeses Pieces because they looked more manly…LOL

Stitch the football up and tie off to secure. Trim the excess embroidery floss.

I cut out some cute stripes and stitching on my Cameo for decorating the football pouches. If you don’t have a Cameo, use a white paint pen and draw them on! I hot glued my stripes and stitches in place. Glue stick did NOT hold.

Aren’t they cute and festive? To open, simply poke your finger through the top of the football and ENJOY!

    Where did you find (or how did you make) the football field tablecloth shown in these pictures? I need something JUST like it but have been going crazy trying to find one!
