Fun and games!

Happy Monday to you all!  Today I have a very cute project made by our DT member Angela to share with you.  I know I talk a lot about all of the things you can use your stamps for besides card making, and this is a perfect example!

"One of the things I love about stamping is the ability to make something new out of paper and ink. I also homeschool my children and they are just the right age to really enjoy learning and playing games. I made a checkers game by using three buttons from the Buttoned Up set, two round buttons, stamped and heat embossed using Teal You What and Gellin Melon Gelly Powder, then stamped the square button to make a grid on my cardstock. The buttons punched out easily and quickly using a 1" circle punch. The coolest part? The entire game is magnetic - I punched and adhered thin magnetic sheets for the playing pieces, and used a stronger thicker magnet material for the game board (since it had to attract through the cardstock it was glued beneath). I love that my kids will be able to tuck this game board in a bag for travel and that it's flat to store easily!"


What a neat idea!  You could have a lot of fun with that (and what kid doesn't love getting a new game?).
Don't forget the monthly challenge!
