What To Do With The Scrabble Tiles I Finally Found - Part 1
Ok, so I've spent the past five years looking through our local thrift stores for Scrabble games. A week ago I found my very first one, but it wasn't what I thought it was going to be. The result, none the less, was these adorable, flower-embellished words.
This wasn't a regular Scrabble game, but a children's Disney version. It was played with cards as well, so there was a slit cut in the tray behind the trough where the letters go.
Danny cut the trays down for me once I chose the words I wanted, and we sanded them on both ends to look more finished.
For words that didn't fill up the whole tray, I added adorable butterflies to the blank tiles and spaced them all out.
A small line of hot glue on each tiles keeps them securely fastened.
You have to keep the spacing in mind or you'll accidentally run out of room. I ended up just taking the letters off one at a time, applying the glue and tucking them right back in.
I chose several colors of paper flowers to add as embellishments because they fit perfectly into that slit. I put a dab of hot glue in the opening and tucked the flowers in, securing them well as they spread the glue all the way up and down.
I love the finished products and can't wait to get them up in the Etsy shop. Click here to see the listings.
