Tic-Tac-Snow



What a beautiful day today is turning out to be. Not too hot, not too cold! My kind of day. I want to share with you a tic-tac-toe game that I put together this morning from an idea that I saw in a magazine. Sorry, I can't remember which one. This is so easy that it can be reproduced for any occasion or holiday. You'll need an empty CD case with the plastic part on the inside that holds the CD taken out. I cut a chipboard square. I covered it with dp. Added white paper strips to make the grid. I adhered a plastic pocket to hold the playing pieces. The sample in the magazine showed tiny chipboard snowflakes for the game pieces, but I don't have any so I improvised. I used the set Snow Burst. After stamping them with white craft ink onto paper, I punched them out and embossed them with UTEE for durability. I added stickers to the front to say TIC-TAC-SNOW. I also stamped more snowflakes in Versamark, then used heat-n-stick powder and dazzling diamonds glitter for a little bling!

How clever! What a cool thing to stash in the car to keep the kids (or adults) occupied!
