Fore! Sucker Favors

Good day all and happy Sunday,

So ... you all know that my DS is a golfer and I love making things for him, but I also forget that he is now a Freshman in high school and doesn't want mommy making him things to take to school.  He still wants me to make things for HIM alone, but taking things for his classmates (in this case) his golf team was NOT going to fly.

How this all came about was I was on Pintrest (my addiction, I pin ALOT, but hardly make anything) and the other day and saw these cute Halloween favors.  Aren't they adorable?  Now she didn't have a how to tutorial here, but I think it's pretty self explanatory on how to make these.
Well, that got me thinking, I could make something for his golf team using this general idea, so off to my craft room I went.  I haven't paper crafted in a quite a while and actually shopped my stash and this is what I used.
Maroon (Highschool colors), white and black cardstock.
Google eyes
Green ribbon
Using my SCAL program I made 4 pieces of rectangles 6.25 by 2.75 and added to circle cutouts on each end for the ribbon.  
Then I scored them at 2.5 from each end 
I also cut 4 circles at 2 inches 
This was a super duper find on my recent "junk-ing" trip at Savers.  All three stamps made by Stampin Up for $2.99, FORE, uh I mean SCORE! 
I used the Fore Stamp for the mouth after highlighting the edges a bit with my black inkpad. 
I kinda think this was ingenious if I do say so myself.
Then pop dotted my googly eyes eyes and free hand cut out tiny triangles (not uniformed at all) and attached them also with glue dots.  I glued them onto the base of the maroon cardstock holder and tied a green ribbon to hold them shut.  
And here you have them.  
Now I showed the first one to my DS and he said "cute mom, but please don't make them for the team!"  I wonder how he knew that that was my intention, hehehe!  I guess high school boys don't want golf sucker holders.  So instead, Coach has FORE (4, seriously) little children, so I will be giving them to him to give to his kids.

I really do love how they turned out and this project took me maybe half an hour.

I will be entering this project over at Decorate to Celebrate for their Anything Goes challenge.

  4. They are so cool! I can completely understand the whole 'not appropriate for high school' idea! My oldest DD loves the things I make but would 'die' if I made any for her friends. Ironically, her friends would probably love them! Teenagers...
