Super Bowl Treat Bag - The Gypsy Spot Design Team Challenge

Designed by Jeannie Phillips - Southside, AL
Click on any picture to enlarge.

Over at The Gypsy Spot we were to make a treat bag/holder of some kind this week.... It was past New Years so I couldn't think up one for that... then I knew my guys love the Super Bowl and pop corn and this is what came to mind... hope that you like it...its pretty simple... I didn't have a cart with a football so I made this one in George.  Hugs Jeannie
The football shapes were made with rounded triangles and a circle.
Triangle cut @ 3 3.46 x h 2.41... rotate the triangle so the point is at the left side on the first triangle and rotated to the left side on the second triangle..... I welded these and grouped them... duplicated twice... flipped the second duplicated football up.... I had 3 in all...see picture... overlap the flipped up football with the first duplicated one to make a card that folds over your treat bag.
Threads of the ball are lower case j's from George  cut @ h 0.58 and flipped up.
The piece under the threads is also two lower case j's from George  cut @ w 0.37 x h 2.29... turned sideways..and one is flipped...overlap the straighter ends and weld.
XLIV cut @ h 1.53. the width will be right if you set the height.
Bars for the XLIV are upper case i's cut @ w 0.44 x h 3.88 ... cut two of these..turn sideways weld to the XLIV.
