Well hello! I have been looking at all of the awesome holiday stamps sitting on my desk, and trying to think of ways to use them other than for traditional Christmas cards. I absolutely adore the Sunny Studio Christmas Icons stamp set and thought that I could use several of the images to create a cute magnetic tic-tac-toe board that everyone can play throughout the holiday season!
I had an unfinished easel magnet board kit, so I pulled it out and started my project by using Mod-Podge to adhere several holiday patterned papers to the board. Once dry, I added the magnetic piece with double sided tape.
I stamped the snowman and Santa images and colored them in with Copic markers. I used my Scan-n-Cut machine to cut them out with a small border, and saved the file so that I could also cut them again from magnet paper. I made sure to cut the mirror image (reverse) - and this time I cut them without the border so they'd fit just right. You can see what I mean about the mirror image in the picture below - see how the holly leaves in the snowman's hat are on the opposite side of the magnetic piece?
I stamped and heat embossed the game title with the Sweet Script alphabet set and cut it into a banner shape. I added a piece of magnet to the back of this as well.
The board itself is made up of leftover pieces of the magnet sheet - they aren't perfect, but they are completely fine for this!
I love that everything is removable! I can use the easel without the game title and board to keep shopping lists, addresses, etc. handy with the cute snowman and Santa magnets when the game isn't in use!
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you've enjoyed my project. See you again soon!
