Hello there! This is my first Craftster challenge! I am super excited to share this since it is my favorite game on earth (nerd). I was inspired by an actual Scrabble game!  Grin Because EVERY doll house needs something to keep the boredom at bay! If I had more time I would have included a dictionary, it seems to be an essential item when we play seeing as my bf majored in English and I swear 90% of the words he comes up with don't exist.

Everything fits in the little box, I made that out of some scrapbooking cardstock. I painted the little banner with the word Scrabble on it by hand. I made all 100 letter tiles out of wood and hand painted them. They each have the correct letter and corresponding number value on them. It took forever! I actually didn't have a brush small enough, so after a lot of complaining to my bf he fixed the problem by cutting off most of the bristles on one brush so that I only had two tiny strands to work with. It worked really well. In the picture of the game all set up you can see that I spelled out the words "crafts" "art" and "knit" (knit has a blank letter tile, I got frustrated trying to find the k I made!) I shrunk down the actual instructions and folded it up. You can actually read them with a magnefying glass.

This is the letter Z with the number value of 10. Super tiny!

I made 4 of the tile holders out of wood, these are my favorite, I love how they came out!

I sewed the bag you keep the letter tiles in using red felt, the tassles are yellow embroidery floss. It actually works but the tiles
tend to get stuck inside on the felt.

Thanks for looking!

Wow! What a great job! You did so well replicating everything accurately. I love minis, and yours is just perfect. Great job!

The thoroughness (word?) of this is incredible! The little tiny letter stands and felt bag made me smile Smiley It's really impressive, and such a clever project!
