A FUN Tic Tac Toe Board!
I made these for an upcoming event for Craft Warehouse. There is a metal piece behind the squares that little magnetic playing pieces stick to! This is a cute, easy project to make for [kids] that they can use as a 'quiet time' game. No batteries necessary!
I simply 'stained' the boards using a Powder Puffs inkpad from Quick Quotes. They are the BEST for this type of thing, as they dry very quickly, and don't get all over your hands! And they go on smoothly.
The metal is 4x4", and simply glued onto the prepared wood with an Embellishment Glue Stick. That glue is the best for gluing different mediums quickly and easily!
The papers are from My Minds Eye, Penny Lane collection The papers are punched with the [blue] square punch from Uchida. Simply apply the embellishment glue to the whole piece of metal, then apply the punched squares quickly, starting in the middle!
Magnets already have adhesive on them, so you can quickly punch little circles and stick 'em on!
The letters are "thickers' and I've added Beacon's 3-in-1 advanced craft glue to them to make sure they really stick!
EASY and INEXPENSIVE!
