Touchdown! Flag Football Team Treats {and a bonus coach card}!

Hi friends!  It's Wendy Sue here today, sharing a fun "touchdown" project!  Everyone who has ever had a child play in any sport at a young age knows that the BEST part of any game (win or lose) is the team treat afterwards.  And it's an honor for each child to have their turn bringing the treat.  I love it because it gives me a chance to do something creative and fun to share with others!  My son played flag football this fall and we loved watching him learn and grow - and he loved the treats! ;)  Here's what we whipped up when it was his turn to take the treat:

We started by filling baggies with a capri-sun, cheese, and some crackers.  

Before we zipped the bags shut, we tucked in one of these cute 3x3 cards, cut from patterned paper:

Next, we created little bag toppers using papers from the 6x6 pad, washi tape, and die-cuts.

We added the toppers to each bag by simply stapling them on!  I thought it would have been super cute to sew them on with my machine...but I figured this was easier (and Zach could help me) and the little football players probably wouldn't really care anyway. ;)

Here's a close-up look at one of the bags.  Front:

Of course, we sure appreciate the dads (and moms) who volunteer to coach these teams, so I always like to give them a little something special at the end of the season.  It's not a lot, but just something to say thanks.  Here's the card we created for our coach with the "touchdown" collection:

You know I love decorating the envelope so it coordinates too! ;)
And we added a gift card to a local burger spot for a yummy shake - attached with coordinating washi tape, of course!

Putting these little gifts together was quick and fun - thanks to the cute "touchdown" collection!!


  1. Such a great idea! I'm sure everyone loved them! :)

    1. Thanks Mendi - it was fun to see them take their treats and then look at their parents to make sure they could actually open them up, lol. ;)

  2. These are fabulous! Love the bag toppers with the tags and those yummy goodies for the team! The coach's card is awesome as well!
