Title: mirror mirror on the wall, who's the prettiest princess of all?
Post by: iloveoctopus on October 04, 2007 04:14:06 PM
=) ok, so this challenge was wonderful, because i've had this pretty pretty princess game since i was 5...i'm now 20, but i can't throw it out even though the crown has been busted for atleast 12 years and most of the gems were missing from the crown and jewelry box! ^_^ so, when this came up, i knew exactly what to do with it! who doesn't want a pretty pretty princess mirror?
here is a new version of the game here, my jewelry box was white and my board is different, but that's pretty much it i think. http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/I/41S2P1A5WPL._AA280_.jpg (http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/I/41S2P1A5WPL._AA280_.jpg)

and here is what mine looks like now! i put a piece of cardboard on the back for a little extra support and to attach the mirror to, and i painted around the mirror white and put the same pattern of gems on it that the jewelry box that came with the game had with what gems i had left.



and i attached ribbons around the board to hold pictures and notes and such and i glued the game pieces on to hold necklaces and all that fun jewelry stuff! oh yeah, i don't have a wall to attach it to, so my loverly brother is holding it up ^_^



and, the best part of this is, i can still play the game! just borrow some pieces from clue and use a headband as the crown and i'm good cause i kept all the jewelry, including the dreaded black ring!

I think I played that game during a slumber party when I was maybe... ten or eleven...

I love that you used pieces to make hooks at the bottom!
