I love Scrabble, but no one ever wants to play =( I also love doing crafts with Scrabble Tiles (pics coming soon!). Even though I didn’t have a complete tile set, I still kept the game board and the racks just in case I could ever find a use for them…then it happened. I stumbled upon THIS BLOG post on Pinterest and was inspired.
I put pieces of Duct Tape on the inside corners and hot glued the box together. Then I hot glued a piece of black felt to the bottom. Once the corners were completely hardened, I removed the Duct Tape. If I had black tape, I could have left it on…*mental note, buy black Duct Tape*
On the top edges (where the game board is folded/scored) I glued a piece of black ribbon. The racks were added to the bottom of the box as “feet” and they really helped tie the whole thing together.
This is a “Treasure Box” …and until now I didn’t realize what that meant. A “Treasure Box” is basically a box that doesn’t close all the way.
