I use them to make magnets, and pins, and you could drill tiny holes in them for bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.  but above all Mail me an M please, I am one M short for my project.  I will send you another letter of your choice (I have no E, M, or a few others left) Smiley I love scrabble letters!

I will trade you for a V.

Just popping in to say don't throw away the board, even if it is old and nasty!  You inspired me to post what I did with mine a long time ago...

Mary Bell put this up in the paper crafts section.  it's a brilliant use for an old board and letters..  in fact I just got some old boards and letters off ebay and I'm going to do this for my mom's birthday that's coming up in Aug.


She has a great Tut to go with it as well!!   Thanks Mary Bell!!!

not exactly crafty- but useful and fun. Use them for Speed Scrabble. It's a variation of the game with no board. It's soo fun!

Dump scrabble letters face down in center. Each player gets 7 pieces. Everyone has their own (imaginary) board which they play on. Everyone turns pieces over at the same time.

Rules to words (no pronouns, no acronyms, etc) still apply, but it's a race to see who can use all their scrabble pieces the fastest.

You can rearrange pieces for words anytime you want. Once a player has used all tiles, she/he calls out "Pull!" and everyone must pull one tile from the center. When all tiles are gone from center, the person who finished first yells "Speed Scrabble!" and the game is over.

Count your points (if letter used twice, double the points; left over tiles are subtracted from total) and record. Set a point goal (say, 500) and whoever gets there first, wins.

It's really fun and exciting. I'm not one much for traditional Scrabble, but I loove this game! It's quick, easy to clean up, easy to set up, and extremely thrilling. Who knew? And it doesn't matter if your pieces are mismatched and such.

Here's a link to directions if mine made no sense at all:
It's a little different, but you should be able to figure it out.
