About a year ago, I made my daughter a travel size Tic Tac Toe. I had of course seen it on Pinterest first. I thought what a great idea! We don't travel a lot, but when we do, it is no less than a 3 hour drive. So, I thought this would be perfect!
However, finding the right container proved to be a little more challenging. Then one day, I was over at my up-line's house for a meeting, and low and behold she had just the right container. Unfortunately, Stampin' Up! doesn't sell them anymore, but I am sure if you do a search you should be able to find them.
It is so simple to make: stamp your images on Whisper White cardstock, 5 of each colour. Punch out the images using 1 1/4 Circle Punch. Then punch out 5 Melon Mambo circles using the 1 1/4 Circle Punch, then 5 of Pacific Point (or the colours that you choose). Assemble the circles together, matching the colours. You will need a hot glue gun to attach the circles to the magnets. Now all you need to do is make 4 strips for the game board. Attach them using Sticky Strip. Voila!
Isn't it cute!? I did not decorate the outside because it would get completely ruined. We just shove it in a bag and go. However, if I were to give it as I gift, I would certainly make the outside container fancy! I should have taken a photo of it closed so you can see how thin it is. Oops!
