This week is Pinterest inspired week over at Epiphany Crafts. If you do Pinterest like I do, you have scores of ideas pinned away for later. I decided to browse my Crafty Inspiration board for a fun idea and settled on this one--a magnetic tic-tac-toe game in an Altoids tin.
Super easy and super cute! Kids are bound to love it!
Slap some washi tape and some patterned paper on an Altoids tin and you have the perfect mini receptacle for a magnetic tic-tac-toe game.
Lemme tell ya, washi tape has made altering Altoids tins SO much easier. Just wrap it around the box and fold over the ends. So easy!
Glossy Accents is a fantastic adhesive for adhering metal objects. I adhered some small, super strong magnets to the back of each game piece. Be careful! Those little suckers will attach to anything metal. I had to re-attach some magnets more than once.
I created the tic-tac-toe markers using my EC Round 14 tool and bubble caps. I made sure to choose patterns for the markers that my kids (ages 6 and 8) wouldn't fight over them.
Using a craft knife, I trimmed some washi tape to make the lines for the tic-tac-toe board on the inside of the lid.
Now, like another car activity, it is only a matter of time before a fight breaks out and/or parts get lost.
