Tic Tac Snow and a Bookmark

Last night I sat down to work on this Tic Tac Snow boardgame....it was so much fun! I got the idea from Christina at Flowers and Ink. I'd made something similar last spring but it never crossed my mind to do it this way!! Thanks for the fab idea Christina!
I'll try and explain what I did.
The game board was a magnetic sheet that I cut down to 6 x 6. I then covered it in a piece of Soft Sky Prints Paper. Drew the lines every two inches with a Not Quite Navy Marker. The game pieces are made with the Merry & Bright snowman. He's so cute and I'll miss him terribly when he's gone! I used the Scallop Punch, 1 1/4", 1 3/8" Circle punches and paper piercered the edges. I then stuck a magnet on the back of them. Now they don't move all over the place! I matted the whole thing on a piece of Blue Bayou CS that is 8.5 x 9 and stamped it with the snowflakes in Blue Bayou ink. The header is a made with Soft Sky cardstock. I stamped the Whimsical Alpha in Soft Sky and Blue Bayou. The snowflake brads are from a dollar store. I added a piece of double stitched Blue Bayou around it. After finishing I used a piece of cardboard to attach the whole thing to. Just for some extra stability. I am REALLY liking these bookmarks....they are so fun to make! Check out the tutorial here. I am going to make them for Chloe's class this year and give them out before the Christmas break.
Time to fly....I haven't crafted yet today...time to make something....LOL
Have a GREAT evening!

WOW!! What an AWESOME Idea!! I was wondering where you got the metal sheet from for the base of the tic-tac-toe game and how you cut it down?

I just looked through your blog and am AMAZED at your talent. Thank you for all the inspiration!!
