My mom loooves yahtzee.  Everytime we hang out with my family we always end up playing a game over some rum and cokes.  I decided to make her her very own set for Christmanikkah (that's, Christmas and Channikkah) using some of her favorite things.



This is the scorecard I made on Excel.


The dice were a little hard to photograph.  Ther is a heart for love, Diet Coke, a VW Bug, a yellow submarine, and a slot machine.  I haven't tested them yet to see if I threw off the balance yet, but I used very thin coats and placed the pictures very careful, so I'm hopeful!

I'm going to have to steal this idea! My family and I grew up playing yahtzee! What glue did you use? What paper? Did you just print the pictures?

Fantastic!

I used excel to make 1/2" cells with a very light gray border and put pictures I found on google in them.  I cut them out and attached them with one layer of mod podge, covered over the pictures and then covered the dice again in a thin layer of accrylic sealer.
