Family Gifts: Super Bowl Sunday + Prize Winners

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! This year the Super Bowl is in our state and sadly I am not going to be at it nor our Vikings Team :( But I have an awesome Super Bowl Party Gift idea for you all! This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit my Pinterest Board HERE.

Super Bowl

This package contained so many fun things and was a blast to make!

  1. I found a Football Bingo Game On-line. I laminated it so Erasable Markers could be used over and over on it, so it could be used year after year. Here is the Bingo Game I found: Download Football-bingo-1-8
  2. When researching about the Super Bowl I found a Trivia Fact sheet that I thought was really interesting and thought the die hard sports fans in our family would like it. This is the website I found them on HERE. You can't print them so you will have to save as an image to your computer and then  print them out. The answers are right below each card.
  3. I picked up craft wood sticks at walmart and using my silhouette cut out the football shapes out of card stock and attached to the sticks. I did them in the Viking Colors.
  4. The cups we found at the Party Store they have a section with football theme items. We put the markers, little footballs, and little decorative sticks into the cups.
  5. I made a little football box that would hold juice boxes for the kids. I will have a video on how to make the box soon on my blog.

Here are some close ups.

The ribbon on the sticks is actually ribbon from my grandma's stash she was big into crafts so it had some nostalgia to it giving it to her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

The little football box. I used White Washi Tape on it.

IMG_0187

To package the gift I recycled brown bags and used some white washi tape to decorate like a football too. lol

The second gift I have to share was for Groundhogs Day we kept this one pretty simple.

IMG_0151

Do you remember this image I shared long ago for our daily journal project? I love this cute image so much I printed it off onto card stock and turned it into a card for groundhog day! Then we printed out the history about groundhogs day. Hubby and I both learned some things we did not know.

#25 Family Plaques

Our last gift for the Christmas Countdown was a Family Plaque we created for each Family. We used the first letter of everyone's last name and the silhouette to add the family onto the glass.

How about an AMAZING christmas eve box!! I saw this idea on Pinterest and really wanted to do it! I want one of these!! lol Each family received a Christmas Eve Box of goodies. The above pictures is pictures of the 4 Gifts boxes as we did each layer in the box.

This was one of my favorite days! Not only was it a blast to put together but I love elves. lol The elf shoes were made using the silhouette. We cut them out in Lucky Limeade and Real Red card stock. On the ends some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper, Bells and Ribbon. Since these where made for the coming year at the time I couldn't put food in them instead we did mini flash lights. Elf Hat, Elf Activity Mat found on-line, of course ELF movie and a trivia printable for it. Then we made the sign using the Silhouette to cut out vinyl. Which I  think is the coolest thing EVER! lol Then I made little elf hats using the Joly Hat Punch and stuck them on red clothes pins I found at the craft store. Super Adorbe's right?

Day 17 Game Day/Farkle

#17 Game Day Farkle

How about a handmade game of Farkle? This idea was born in Target in the game isle. lol I saw the game Farkle in round container and thought hmmm. To create this you will need a Silhouette and green vinyl. I did green vinyl to stick with the christmas theme. Some sort of tin. I got these years ago some place and finally used them! Ha White small note pad and green pen came from Amazon. The dice I found at the dollar store. Directions typed up and then laminated them. Here is some close ups.

Farkle

Cover

Farkle Open

Inside

17 Tag

Day 17 Christmas Tag I used the Big Shot and retired Merry Tags Framelits to die cut out the Real Red card stock and retired Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper. I used the retired 25 Days stamp set to ink 17 in Real Red ink onto Whisper White card stock. I punched out the number using the 3/4 Circle Punch.

IMG_0457

Card that went into the gift I used Pool Party and Whisper White card stock. The DSP was something left over in my stash. Then I added the 17 to it the same way as the tag above. We also picked up penguin theme gifts so we put the farkle game in with it. The gifts varied from family due to the kids ages. Some of the gifts came from a craft store, dollar store, target, target $1 spot. We had a new born basically so that was really hard to do stuff for him but I stumbled upon a really cute outfit with a penguin on it. Couldn't believe I just randomly found that by chance. lol

Day 18 Gingerbread House

#18 Gingerbread House

Wouldn't be christmas without the gingerbread house! If you wait till towards the end of December you can actually get these so they are good through the following December. Just a FYI since we did the gift a year ahead. I didn't think anyone would actually eat them but wanted to be safe just in case. lol You can still purchase the Cookie Cutter Stamp Set and Cookie Cutter Punch!!!

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • I decorated the gingerbread box with some misc gingerbread dsp I had in my stash. Then I used the stamp from Cookie Cutter Stamp Set; inked in Early Espresso and stamped onto Whisper White card stock. I punched it out using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.
  • I colored some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a Real Red Sharpie marker and added them to the gingerbread man.
  • The gift tag I used scraps from my stash of DSP and used the number stamp from retired 25 Days Stamp Set. Inked in Old Olive and stamped onto Whisper White card stock. Then cut it out and attached with a dimensional. The top of the tag I punched a hole and tied some ribbon through it from my stash.
  • The card I printed the saying onto Whisper White card stock, then decorated with the Candy Cane Lane DSP. Then stamped 18 again in Old Olive.

Supplies Used
Stamps: Cookie Cutter Christmas, 25 Days
Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso
Paper: Whisper White, Candy Cane Lane DSP
Acc.: Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, 1/8 Handheld Punch, Rhinestones Basic Jewels

Day 19: A Christmas Carol

#19 A Christmas Carol

When I was trying to figure out what to do for day 19 I was aimlessly wondering a store on the end cap was a book of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. Score!! This is one of my favorites for christmas and one I never get tired of. So the idea was born to make a craft "chain" to go with the book. lol I made 4 of these star chains. When they were done I had made a total of 160 stars.

IMG_0507

Here is the card and tag we created.

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Die cut out a lot of stars using the Big Shot and Star Framelits. I used some misc dsp from my stock pile, you'll want several different patterns of dsp. Each star took a total of 4 Stars for the front and back in 2 different sizes.
  • Die cut out lots of circles using the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits. I die cut them out of Silver Glimmer Paper to go with the Silver Bells. You need 2 circles per star.
  • Assemble each side of the star but don't glue the two halves together. (Learn from my mistake lol) I did so then I had to try to thread the hemp twine through and that really slowed me down.
  • You will need a heavy hemp for this project. Lay your stars out on a table (however many you want). Then lay your bells  out between the stars this will give you an idea how long to cut your hemp.
  • Then thread your bells onto the hemp. Place the hemp out across the stars and slide the bells into place.
  • Go through and attach dimensionals to the stars.
  • Attach the other half of the star and your star chain is complete.
  • Decorate the card with dsp and some diecut stars. I stamped the number from retired 25 Days Stamp Set in Real Red Ink.
  • The gift tag was created out of leftover scraps of dsp and Whisper White card stock. I stamped the number from retired 25 Days Stamp Set in Real Red Ink.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: 25 Days
Ink: Real Red
Paper: Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Acc.: Big Shot, Stars Framelits, Layering Circle Framelits, 1/8 Handheld Punch, Heavy Hemp, Silver Bells

Day 20 Santa Pinball

#20 Santa Pinball

Wouldn't be Christmas without Santa Pinball! lol Hubby found these and wanted to put them in the gift. He found them at Walmart.
The card we printed our saying on Whisper White card stock. Stamped the 20 from retired 25 Days Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I stamped the "greetings from the northpole" from retired Greetings from Santa Stamp Set (I thought that was fitting for a santa gift lol) in Real Red. Then stamped the stars in Old Olive. The gift tag was created using the Banner Triple Punch on a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper. Then I added some misc scraps of dsp from the left overs. I stamped the 20 onto Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. Add a Rhinestone I colored and some misc ribbons  I had.

Supplies Used
Stamp: 25 Days, Greetings from Santa
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive, Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
Paper: Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper
Acc. Banner Triple Punch, 1/8 Handheld Punch, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, Rhinestones

IMG_9947

First I created the recovery kit part. The mask I cut out of Basic Black card stock using my Silhouette and then I stapled elastic to it.
Then I put Tic Tacs and Ear Plugs into little baggies. I printed out my little New Year's Recovery Kit List that we came up with onto Whisper White card stock and then I glued it to a piece of Basic Black card stock.

N2

To hold it all together I used one of our Gold Binder Clips! I love these things and use them a lot.

New Years Recovery Kit

Apparently I live under a rock I didn't know you could buy small bottles of water. Snort I picked these up at Target I thought they were cute! I simple decorated them with package ribbon in black and gold easy peasy. Then I decorated a Kraft Tag A Bag Gift Bags. I designed a printable to print out onto Whisper White card stock. I used the retired stamp sets  It's a Celebration and Ting of Tags. I stamped in Crushed Curry and Smoky Slate Ink. Behind the whisper White card stock I added a piece of Fabulous Foil Acetate. I attached to the gift bag with some Everyday Chic Washi Tape. Then finished with some Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Day #11 Gingerbread Man Day

Love that cute little gingerbread guy in the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set!

Rubberredneckcookiecutterchristmas

These were all the goodies I created for the day 11 Gift. Of course I made every families a little different some how! lol I also by complete chance found gingerbread shaped cookie cutter. Some of the items can still be purchased and I have them listed below. This gift uses the Candy Cane Lane Suite from the 2016 Holiday Catalog that has since retired.

I purchased those large wooden clothespins and modgepodged the Candy Cane Lane DSP from the Holiday 2016 Catalog onto it.  I added the gingerbread man from Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set onto the front. Then found a recipe on line for gingerbread cookies. We have people in our family that are also gluten free so I had to also find a recipe that was gluten free. My helper however typed up the directions wrong and I didn't catch it. Whoops lol I added the cookie recipe we found.

Little packet of coloring puzzles. I happen to find the puzzles at Hobby Lobby during my wanderings. lol I decorated a Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags. I decorated the bag with the Cookie Cutter Christmas and Candy Cane Christmas Stamp Sets.

I wanted to put gingerbread cookies (my favorite) in the gift but of course I couldn't find any that would keep for a year. lol So I found this idea on pinterest. Thought it was super cute! I just copied the saying I found on line. Printed it off onto Whisper White card stock and decorated.

Day 12 Christmas Jars

Man I don't know about you all but I love getting gifts like this! Jars are so fun to fill with goodies!

Rubber Redneck Tin Tags

I filled a quart jar full of goodies! Everyone's jars were filled with different items. We did Holiday socks, candy, chap stick, $1 mittens, christmas stickers, change, travel games, and etc. I also filled them with fun christmas filler I found at Hobby Lobby. I had a blast creating these! If you want to create something like this at target and walmart they have a party isle and will have christmas theme things for little gifts for kids or hit the $1 Spot at Target. lol The front of the jar is the countdown card. I used the 25 Days retired stamp set.

On the left is the tag I created to go outside of the gift. I punched out a piece of Cucumber Crush card stock with the Banner Triple Punch. I used the 25 Days, Tin of Tags, and Project Life Date It Retired Stamp Sets.

Day 13 Jingle Bell Toss

Rubber Redneck Jingle Bell Toss

While researching ideas I stumbled upon this fun idea of using bells and miniature cups to create a game! I thought it was a must do because our family actually has a game with these cups only you use quarters and cards so when I saw this it was happening! lol However I didn't realize how hard it would be to find little miniature red cups. We went to so many stores trying to hunt them down. It was pretty funny. The bottom pictures are the Day 13 card and gift tag. They used the retired stamp sets 25 Days and Stitched with Cheer.

Tree Game

The base is created out of a canvas board and 2 miniature red cups on one end to prop it up. We hot glued them on.
On the top side you lay out the cups to look like an upside down tree. Hot glue those too.
Find a decorative christmas bag and fill with christmas bells. We had enough cups left over that hubby and I made one for us to. We had a blast playing it!

Then I typed up the directions on how to play.

Jingle Bell Toss
2 Players

Directions:

  1. Each player gets 6 bells of a single color.
  2. Stand a few feet away from the board. Toss 1 bell at a time and try to get it into the cups.
  3. Bells that land in the top row of the cups are worth 2 points each.
  4. Bells that land in the middle row and bottom row are worth 1 point each.
  5. After you have thrown all six bells in your color then it is your opponent’s turn to toss their bells. Any bell that lands in a cup that already has an opponent’s bell in it cancels out the points for both bells. Once both players have thrown all of their bells the round is complete and points can be totaled.
  6. Continue to keep playing rounds until someone’s score totals 21 at the end of a round then that person wins.

Day 9

Build a snowman day....this has been one of my favorite things to do since I was a kid! So I came up with some fun gift ideas and a fun craft project to do indoors this year.

IMG_9577

How about a decorated electric tea light. Cute right? I found this general idea on pinterest. So fun and easy to do too. I made the hat using the Big Shot, Everyday Jar's Framelits and Layering Squares Framelits. Stamped the images from the retired Stitched With Cheer Stamp Set and used the Holly Berry Builder Punch.
Use a sharpie to draw the eyes on the tea light.

IMG_9586

Of course it needed a little box to hold it. I filled the box with tinsel another awesome use for that stuff!

IMG_9594

The lid I created for the box. I just die cut out the center with the retired Perfect Pines Framelits. Then added a piece of Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate over the opening so the snowman could peek through :)

IMG_9595

The adults got snowman poop boxes. lol I made this using the Big Shot, Layering Circles Framelits and the Jolly Hat Builder Punch. It fits the tic tac containers. (This was one of my husbands favorites to give his siblings. lol)

IMG_9574

I wanted some sort of crafty thing that the families could do so we created build a snowman kit using glue, cotton balls, card stock, and pipe cleaners. I am going to be sharing this hole project in Jan sometime along with the printable we created so be sure to come back for that one.

Every family recieved some sort of fun gifts we purchased that had a snowman theme. I found these really cute snowman picks for everyone. Everyone's gift was different to match kid's ages.

Day 7

Everyone needs a special handmade box with a very special gift inside.

IMG_9836

I created this box out of last years Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper from the 2016 Holiday Catalog. I made the boxes different too for each family.

IMG_9835

Inside an ornament that hubby and I created! Every Christmas tree needs a special handmade ornament! We used the silhouette to cut out gold vinyl. We found clear ornaments at the craft store and filled them with tiny pine cones. I used ribbon and a red bell from my stash of crafting stuff. To make the box a little more festive we filled it with pine cones.

IMG_9815

We made two different designs the manger and the buck.

IMG_9828

Sorry the picture isn't great we had a heck of time getting pictures of them.Then on the back we put the year, name, and on my brother's we added our first christmas since they just got married. This was the first time I attempted something like this and they were overall very easy and fun to make! We were going to make deer ones for our tree this year but the craft store where I got them can't keep the ornaments in stock. lol

IMG_9507

Here is the card we put in the gift. I used the retired 25 Days and Stitched with Cheer Stamp Set. I made these different too for everyone.

IMG_9520

Tags for outside of the package all made different too. I used the Santa's Sleigh Stamp Set, Santa's Sleigh Thinlits and retired 25 Days Stamp Set. The tags were all made out of my scraps of card stock great way to use up those scraps.

Day 8

We found some really cute Santa Pants.

IMG_9558
