Hi everyone! It’s Jess from Everyday Party Magazine, and I’m so excited to be here today! I’m a Cricut enthusiast, and I love using Jen’s cut designs for party decor, favors, and more!

Make your own football party favors in Cricut Design Space

We always host a small football party for the big game. Truthfully, we host football parties a lot throughout the College and Pro seasons. So, I am always looking for a way to share a cute and inexpensive party favor. And when I saw Jen’s Picnic Box Cut Files, I knew they would be PERFECT to use for football party favors! 

I quickly made a few dozen. Just before the party, I will make some adorable football shaped cookies, and fill each box. Then, I will add color coordinating ribbon. That's it! Super easy, even more adorable, and totally affordable for any party size!
