Here's a nice little gift box for yur sports fans. I used it for a Jewish occasion, but you can put whatever you want on the front. (I used vinyl for the "logo")
Materials: 4 sheets of cardstock. 1 pen to color the "stitches"
To build the box, download the file, unzip and load the svg into Design Space (or whatever software you use).
You will need to attach the score lines, and set the blue lines to "draw" the seam stitches.
Copy the cap segment so you have 8 of these.
Keep the small octagon that is cut out of the larger octogon with the tab. Glue this to the hat base to help strengthen it.
Assemble the 8 pieces into a half-sphere. Attach the open octagon with the single tab to the bottom to strengthen it.
Assemble the two rectangular strips end to end and form a octagon. Glue the octogon with the small tabs inside it to form the "box"
Glue the cap top to the large octagon using the single tab.
Glue the box to the large octagon, centering it, and making sure it closes nicely.
Glue the hat top assembly to the hat base, lining up the large octagon to the octagon part of the base.
Glue on the brim.
Attach the "dot" at the top of the cap, if desired.
Add any logos either after assembly or before gluing the hat top pieces together.
I found it took about 30 minutes to assemble. If you cut two at a time, they will fit on 6 sheets of 12x12 cardstock.

I made this as a doodle cut for my daughter, who loves spinning and alpacas. It took about 2 hours to weed.
The white background is optional. The zip file contains the svg format cutting file.
I made this as a decoration for our sukkah and just wanted to make it available to any other crafters who might want to make use of it for their own sukkah.
If you don't know what a sukkah is, you probably don't need it. LOL, but the short answer is that it is a temporary dwelling that is part of one of the Autumn Jewish holiday celebrations. (You might have heard it referred to as the feast of tabernacles -- the sukkah being the tabernacle.) The lulav and esrog (citron) play a role in the prayer services for the holiday, which is called "Sukkot" (the plural of sukkah) No instructions, but the layering should be pretty obvious if you study the picture. If you celebrate Sukkot, "Chag Sameach!"
