Could it be true that baseball’s Opening Day is only a couple of weeks away? I am always so sad at the end of baseball season. Although I like hockey and basketball (especially when our hockey team is awesome like this year and my college team makes the NCAA tournament), my heart yearns for baseball season all winter long. There’s something about the predictability of games almost every night, getting to know the players and watching game after game that I love.
Since the family and I enjoy baseball so much, we throw many baseball themed events during the season. Whether it’s having friends over to catch a game at home or enjoying a pre-game cookout before heading into the city to watch our team play live, baseball parties are my kind of celebration.
So for today’s free printable, I have created a baseball popcorn box to use at your next baseball themed celebration. These popcorn boxes are a fun way to serve snacks, display dessert table treats or act as a favor box and send home with guests. They are perfect for any baseball themed event – kids birthday, baby shower or casual afternoon playdate.
You Will Need:
Free printable baseball popcorn box
Medium weight (60 to 90 pound) cardstock (We recommend this cardstock Neenah Exact Index, 90 lb)
Martha Stewart Crafts Scoring Board and Envelope Tool
1. Print out your free printable baseball popcorn box. (You will need two sheets of medium white cardstock to make each box.)
2. Cut out your baseball popcorn box.
Score the center of your popcorn box with the solid line. I found the side dashed lines do not match up to the scoring board. My suggestion is to free hand score those lines or just fold them without any scoring.
3. Fold the sides of your popcorn box carefully.
Glue the sides together with a glue stick.
Pinch together so they adhere. Let dry.
Fill your boxes with sweet treats, use to serve baseball themed snacks or send party favors for guests home in them. They are such a fun addition to any baseball themed celebration.
