Travel Game Set

Hi Everyone

I'd like to start off by saying thank you to everyone who visited and/or left comments over the weekend for the blog hop.  I've never taken part in a blog hop before, your comments were truly appreciated and I hope you found as much inspiration as I did from visiting all the other talented crafters.

Today my project is a little travel game set.

The box that holds all these goodies comes from The Digi Chick.  This template is designed by Kelleigh Ratzlaff, and comes with 2 different sized boxes.  The smaller box is designed to fit a standard pack of cards - how much fun to gift a set of cards in a personalized box?  I decided to use the larger box as I had a few more items to fit in.  The paper I used for this is 'Greenhouse' designed by Carolyn Gavin from K & Co.

The first thing I made was the tic-tac-toe game.  The base is cut from card stock using part of the template, and then adhered to a piece of magnetic material .  The lines are strips cut from some remnants of vinyl, and the game pieces punched with a 1" circle punch (they are also adhered to the magnetic material.)

I added this cute little matchbook which is a Silhouette file from the online store.

I decided the outside of the box had to be fun too, so I used a maze and the "Totally A-maze-ing" stamp set (both from Stampin' Up.)  I have to admit to wasting quite a bit of time while I was creating, trying to get the little balls into the center of the maze :)

The box itself went together so quickly, it is just cut in one piece and glued on one side so that you can open it at either end.  Everything fits in there so perfectly - I may just add a little pencil and some candy to make it complete.  Just something fun if you have little ones and a long car/plane ride in your future.

Thanks for stopping by today.



  1. Michelle,

    What a great idea. I am going to make one for Charlie to hve at Grandma's house.

  2. Great project Michelle. I may just have to borrow this one!

  3. Great idea. I remember when my kids were younger we would only take travel games and books in the car. I am sure glad we did. This would be perfect and entertaining.
