Making Gifts from Board Game Pieces

Guest Author - Lynn Little

Are you looking for the perfect gift this holiday season? With a little imagination and some spare board game pieces, you can create a unique gift that will definitely be loved by board game enthusiasts.

Scrabble tile pendants are popping up everywhere. They are easy to make and make a stunning pendant to wear on a necklace. You will need a Scrabble tile, pretty scrapbook paper, resin, glue, and a craft knife. Basically you will need to glue the paper onto the tile. Let it dry and then trim it with the knife. Then use the resin to bond the top and sides to the tile - creating a glossy look.

Monopoly charm bracelet can be easily created. Just buy a charm bracelet. Then attach jewelry clasps or rings to the pieces. Now add it to the bracelet. Pick up board games at rummage sales or thrift stores to get extra pieces really cheap.

Board game book binding is a more advanced project. You will need to know something about creating journals. Cut out the board to the size of the journal you want to make. Cut two pieces - one for the front and one for the back. Bind it however you wish - ribbon, glue, etc. This could be given to someone who loves to write or could also be used as a score keeping notebook.

Play money notebook can be made much the same way as the board game journal but easier. Take a hole punch to make a hole in the paper. Then take a ring that opens up and place the play money on it. Use a piece of card stock in the front and the back. This size notebook is perfect for jotting down email addresses, websites, or other quick notes.

Sometimes it's nearly impossible to find the right gift for friends. With a little creativity and a little time, the perfect gift can be made right at home. Using board game pieces will give those spare parts a new purpose and help save money this holiday season.
