Title: Ouija Board Notebook / Journal
Post by: ShaynaYasha on October 04, 2007 10:41:50 AM
This is the Ouija Board notebook that I made for DropDeadSuzie
for a Board Game swap that just finished.  I used all the pieces... both the board AND the oracle  :P ... wow... a Parker Brothers game with just 2 pieces.... what a stretch.... but you can't say I didn't use everything  LOL  :D


Here's a pic of the front.  I bound the sides with a thick seam binding because for the life of me, I couldn't find book binding tape.  But it worked.  I drilled in hinges & polished off the ends where the screws stuck out with my Dremel (tip: wear goggles & long sleeves... metal shavings are HOT)


I lined the inside with Scrabble Paper & attached the oracle, which I lined with a cool game piece fabric, & wa-la... instant pencil holder.  I recycled an old notebook 3 ring part & again drilled that in & Dremeled off the excess screw parts (Again... I wish I was wearing sleeves)

Here are some better shots that DropDeadSuzie had taken...

That is the coolest notebook ever! I would kill to be able to bring one of those to class. I could contact the "spirits" for help on tests.

LMAO... I can see it now....sitting in the back of the class... "Is the answer to #43 Abraham Lincoln?" & the oracle points to "Yes".   ;D

I love this. Love it love it love it. And this may make me sound 9,but the only time I used a oujia board it worked, it gave me some pretty specific answers to some pretty specific questions.
