Intro: How to Customize Your Paper Footballs
This instructable will let you know how to make a paper football into a any football teams logo, colors, or you can make up a team!
Step 1: Get the Grid Ready
1. Open Word
2. Make a 2.09" x 2.09" square with a "White, Background 1, Darker 15%" border
3. Copy and Paste so you have 12
4. Put them all side by side into a 3x4 grid
Now you have a grid that when you cut out the squares you can fold each of them in half diagonally, and they will each fit over a paper football.
Step 2: Think of a Team
Now is the time to think of what team you want to make. You can:
1. Use a NFL team
2. Use a college football team
3. Or make your own
Go online and search for graphic images of your team's logo, helmet, jersey, stadium, mascot, etc.... whatever you want to use.
I will be doing the Steelers logo
Step 3: Make Your Design
Ok, after all the wait it finally time to design the footballs! But it is the hard part, not!
Imagine one of the squares is split diagonally into 2 triangles (one of the triangles will go on one side of the football, the other will go on the other side of the football).
If you just want the logo on both sides, then put a logo on each of the triangles. (You can find logo graphics by searching online)
You can change the background too if you want.
If you want a set of eleven footballs for my other instrucable "The Absolute Best Way to Play Paper Football", Copy and Paste your design to every square.
Step 4: Making What We've Done Work
The moment we have all been waiting for! The time too... make the footballs look cool!
1. Print it out
2. Cut out the squares
3. Fold the squares in half diagnolly
4. Tape them on and...
THE KICK IS GOOD! Go ahead and kick your way to the finalls with your new, stylish, football!
