You know that I cheer for Alabama & the Atlanta Falcons but this week I’m really stretching myself and making a Football Friday craft for a different team. It’s painful, but I’m doing it for you. LOL! I chose LSU this week. So LSU fans…start cheering and making these crazy glasses. All other fans, change up the colors to
crimson and white your team colors and shout Roll Tide Roll “Football Friday” with me!
I used my Gypsy and the Life’s a Party Cricut cartridge to create these silly glasses. To make the glasses quick to finish, I decided to cut them out on two pages of different colored paper and switch up the pieces. You could make all kinds of crazy glasses by varying color, texture and adding embellishments but I kept it fairly simple.
You won’t see the glasses I made in the booklet, but you can see the pieces I used on this page. I used the soccer glasses on the far left, both of those boxes. Then I welded the Game Day starburst (see the Phrases box) over the soccer ball “play on” sentiment. You could create tons of your own personalized glasses by welding over the original sentiment.
I used the hide button to get rid of as much of the soccer theme as I could. I left that awkward rectangular space that looks like a hanging chad. I wish I’d noticed it earlier because I could have welded something in that spot to get rid of it. It would provide a decent place to attach an embellishment, but I chose not to add one.
I cut everything at about 8″. You can test your cut for proper sizing (like I did) on a spare piece of paper. I keep paper around that I don’t like for just such a need. I don’t buy paper I don’t like for this, but I have a bunch that I used to like and now think is hideous. LOL! Adjust your sizes to fit. You can also attach the sides of the glasses in different slots for a better fit.
I needed to bling these glasses up a bit so I added little dots/pearls using my Ice White Viva Decor Pearl Pen. Um, I also knocked the yellow glasses over before the pearls dried. It was so sad. Give yours time to dry before moving them.
Here are the sides! I popped the end of the tabs back out to help anchor the sides even better. You don’t have to do that if you don’t want to.
I hope you enjoyed these fun glasses! No go make some and support your football team! I’m giving these to an LSU fan that I know.
