My two local thrift stores are full of kids' games and adult board games
. Most of the games are missing pieces, but that's OK with me, since I like to use them for craft project
Laura, otherwise known as The Scrabble Gal,
is great at re-purposing
materials some people would send to their local thrift store
. She recently had her fingerprint mini-mosaic
tutorial made from Scrabble tiles featured on Junk Creation
, and sent us the link.
Laura took some old Scrabble
tiles and painted them white. She arranged them in a pattern around the non-painted tiles. She then dipped her fingers in a non-toxic ink pad
and transfered her prints onto the white tiles.
The possibilities of what you can create are endless. Magnets
keepsakes, wall art
: the list goes on. For more ideas on how to use Scrabble tiles, either as a kid project or made to give as a gift
