A little game of TIC TAC TOE!

I was up this month to create a project for the "In the Know" newsletter at Kaisercraft - so here it is! Thinking a little outside the square I took an old hardcover book and altered it to make a game board. Inside there is room for the token holder and score sheets - take a little look here:
First take an old hardcover book and cut out the middle section of several pages to make a storage compartment for the tokens. Use Mod Podge to seal all pages together and when dry ink all edges with silver and black ink. Cover the inside with 13th hour papers. Use 13th Hour Acetate shapes to make a pocket for the score cards (Kaisercraft – 13th Hour - Journal tags make perfect score cards!). Embellish with lace and stickers from the 13th Hour sticker sheet.
Use 13th Hour papers to cover the front of the book using a chequered pattern to make the game board. Embellish with Paper Blooms altered with black glimmermist and Kaisercraft lace. Highlight the game board by using Black Rhinestone strips as your border.
Use Chipboard shapes along with some clock faces adorned with sparklets to make some game tokens. Store these inside the book cover.
Your Game book is now ready for your first game!
Hope you like this! :) Vicki
