Tonight I'm celebrating my Scrabble-loving buddy's birthday... so I made her fridge scrabble!

Inspired by this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=214821.0



Crazy flash... makes everything look wonky! Oh well, you get the idea. Smiley

Here's the side of the board..all made with scrapbook paper, colored pencils, sharpies, and mod podge.  Smiley Colors are cooler looking in real life, yo.


Some of the tiles! I bought scrabble-sized wooden tiles and made them all myself. I had to mod podge the tops of them first, though, since my sharpie bled and ran on the raw wood. Stuck some magnet tape on the back of them all. I think they're so cute, if I do say so myself!  Cool


I sewed a pouch for the tiles, too, in literally five minutes. Not rocket science, people.


Painted a little chalkboard and stuck magnets on the back for score-keeping...


And everything together!


I'm off to wrap it and give it away... darn it!

Very Nice!  But you can get an extra point in your first pic - you left out one of the "t"s in Craftster.  Grin

That's such a great idea, and much more cuter than normal Scrabble! Cheesy

*GASP!* And I am such a spelling freak, too. I was hurrying to get the pictures taken... can't believe I missed a T.  Roll Eyes

Thanks for the kind words, guys! It was a hit! Grin
