Altoid's Tin Tic Tac Toe Game

Lucy loves tic tac toe.  I don't know why.  I remember loving the game myself as a kid.  And I still don't know what the appeal was then.  But, Lucy loves it.  And because it's something so simple to indulge, I couldn't help but make a travel game for her. 

I went digging in my supplies and found one of my extra Altoid's tins.  Then I covered it in Mod Podge.

 I then glued on a piece of white paper.  I did this for two reasons.  One, it covered the indentations of the Altoids logo.  And second, it helped bring out the colors of the washi tape that I used next.

Then I wrapped the box with washi tape.

While that was drying, I went and found some little wooden circles that I cut for a project back in December that I decided not to do.  And then I pulled out my paints

I asked Lucy what colors she wanted me to paint and she picked this pink and this green.  A gal after my own heart.

While they were drying, I pulled out my vinyl samples that I got in the mail recently from 3M.  I thought this glittery blue would be the best since I had used the glittery mod podge.

I stuck the letters to the front of the case and LOVED it.

Now for the inside.  I used another one of the sample pieces and cut it down to fit inside.  And then I cut out a tic tac toe game out of purple vinyl since purple is Lucy's favorite color.

And there you go, a super cute little travel tic tac toe game that I can keep in my purse so that when we go out, we can play anytime she wants.
