Do you get totally stumped when it comes to Sports, or anything related to it? Like GIFT ideas?!

Well, then MAYBE today’s post will help you out with some ideas. I have to admit this really stumped me! Not be sporty and all. Despite my sporty inabilities, the set is really cool, and great for ANY sport.

My kids play soccer, basketball, baseball and dance. None of that ambition comes from me. Now DANCE is so up my alley, all the other sports, not so much. So when it comes time to highlight that Im usually just as clueless as the next valley girl!! LOL! I swear I sit there there during the games absolutely clueless. Granted I do know WHEN my kids score (hahahhaha), but that is usually it.

Nichole gave the team a challenge to take Team Spirit to a new level, and create some sort of card and gift centered around SPORTS.

This group post today features Heather’s new stamp set is called All Star Team & Additions.

I decided on making a gift for a Soccer Coach (since my hubby Jay is the kids soccer coach, and I enjoy that sport most)

I took my NEWEST template Get a Handle On It-and made a Sports Jersey themed gift box.


Now how cool is that?!!!!!!!! I told you this one was versatile! You can add about anything to the FRONT of the box. Like the baby onesies 😀

PS-NOW I KNOW you are DYING to see the next template-that will be posted TOMORROW! I will share a COUPLE samples with the template you have NOT seen yet. Trust me, its heaven! I’ve been bustin my hiney 😀

I just made my box, as directed, then made my Sports Jersey panel, and adhered it to the front of my box! I love it!!


Now the hanging whistle is totally cool to me too. Really makes the gift.

NOTE: I removed the original string (and put it in the box) so it would look more like it belonged on my box. Plus I could shorten it.


The All Star is embossed with white EP.

My BIG gift idea was to get a whistle, and have the team pitch in, to get it engraved! Things Rememberedengraves ANYTHING you want (for a price of course! LOL!). Its a great keepsake, that the entire team can give. Since the engraving isn’t THAT pricey on a small item such as this-you can put any extra 4 collected towards a gift card or other gift item, and put that IN the box 😀

Side view


When you open the box……


You see the mini jersey card


Inside the mini jersey card- is a gift card to a sporting goods store.


Now, also in the box is the gift of a Sports Watch/Timer.


 Every coach needs a good one of those.

So this is the set together-Gift box and card.


I’ll be putting the gift box/whistle up on my Etsy Store sometime soon!!


Get a Handle On It Template

Cardstock: New Leaf, White, Black

Ink: Versamark, Black

Now for the questions, answered! Many of you asked HOW this template opens! So I figured I’d share.


I made this box using the Get a Handle On It template, and the Everyday Classics (PTI anniversary set)

As I told you, the handles fold in first, then the sides fold in to hold it closed


Now this is the box, unfolded.


Its REALLY cute.

I LOVE that the largest Scallop Square nestability fits PERFECTLY on the bottom too 😀 Make a nice finished look if you want it, with NO FUSS.
