Baseball Gifts

Hey everyone! This is what I've been up to! I have been meaning to share these projects with you that I have been working on the past week. We had a party for my son's baseball team on Saturday, they went swimming and ate cupcakes, and handed out trophies. So I wanted to make them a little something, because that's what I love to do! :) I looked for popcorn buckets already made and could not find any, so I found a template for these popcorn buckets online, and I traced them on shirt boxes. I found that it is a little bit more sturdy than card stock and cheap, and a package of 3 boxes, can make 6 buckets. I then printed off a popcorn bucket from a program on my computer that had the scallops, so I traced them on there too. I then cut it out and glued it together and then traced the red lines on it. I printed off the word POP CORN from my computer and just glued it on too, I put Cracker Jacks, sunflower seeds, and bubble gum in each one. I put the gum in a little Ziploc bag, and made a topper to go on each one with the words, "Way To Go", stamped on it. I also made these cute little cards with this cute little boy stamp on it. I stamped the "W" on the helmet though. The stamp is from Pink Cat Studio, the stamp is called Sporty Billy, go by there, they have some really cute stamps and they are offering a digistamp in remembrance to a cute little boy named Ethan. Go by and check it out, it is for a great cause! I colored the little boys with color pencils I bought with a 40% off coupon from JoAnn's. I didn't have a peach one, so I just left their flesh all white. I tried to keep them the same color as their baseball suits. I really want to invest in some Copics though, I think it just gives it a better look. I just typed their names from my computer too, I also made these cute little baseball cards from a computer program I have and printed them and put them in these baseball card folders and they fit perfect in the inside of the card. I made all the boys one, I would show you the other cards, but they have their last names and pictures on them and their parents might not want them posted. Sorry this is such a long post, I just wanted to give some of the details. Well here they are!Here is the front of the baseball card.

Here is the back.Have a Blessed Day!
