Super Bowl Snack Ideas

We love throwing a Super Bowl party and I’m always on the look out for a fun football themed way to serve food.  We usually serve Detroit style coney dogs or slow cooker ribs as our main course, but I also like to have some munchies around to eat during the game.  I love these fun football snack boxes that Brittany from A Spark of Creativity is sharing with us today! I love these for a football party, but these boxes are perfect for any party or snack.

For easy reference – here are all the supplies you need to make these adorable Football Favor Boxes!

Football Snack Boxes Tutorial

Supplies Needed:

Directions:

Head over to the Cricut Design Space and open up the Football Favor Boxes file. The file says it cost $.99 but it opened right up for me.  You can use the file later to make the boxes for pretty much any party or even just as popcorn boxes for family movie night.  Select the Make It Now button in the bottom right hand corner. It asked me to download a plug in, which I did, before it would download.  You will see 5 boxes, 5 threads and some scoring marks appear.   The project  that will cut out a total of 5 boxes and all the supplies you need to make them.

Next, head over to the Cricut to do your cut settings. Follow the prompts to load your card stock into the machine one at a time. Once all cuts are complete set paper aside and get ready for assembly.

I assembled my brown favor boxes first by using quick dry glue on the tabs and holding firmly until well assembled.

Once all 5 boxes are assembled run the white threads through a Xyron sticker machine to make them sticky.  You could also just glue them on but the sticker machine works really well especially when mass producing the favor boxes.  And that’s it! The football treat boxes are ready to be filled!

Fill your boxes with homemade caramel corn. I make mine with honey!

If you prefer a little spicier popcorn, try Buffalo Popcorn instead.

    These are so super cute. I could recite a dozen really cute football parties I had when the boys were playing, but won’t. Suffice it to say I wish I had come across this post 20 years ago. Very very cute and fun.
