SpringBadgeIt's finally time for my FREE PREVIEW PROJECT TUTORIAL and BLOG CANDY!  We are celebrating the start of the Create with Connie and Mary Spring Collection by showing you a taste of what you can expect when purchasing our tutorials!  And…leave a comment here TODAY and get a chance to win BLOG CANDY…a FREE subscription to our Spring Collection.  Don't worry, if you have already signed up, we'll apply it towards our next session!


I'm THRILLED with how this Cool Kid Tic Tac Toe Magnetic Board turned out and it wasn't hard at all!  My kids used to want to play this game for hours in the car.  It would have been nice to have this version where we didn't lose some of the game pieces or need a pen and paper to play!  The base on this is a simple 9-1/2 x 9-1/2 metal sign…found easily at your local craft stores.



Since my metal sign board had hangers on the back, I went ahead and added a ribbon hanger so it stores easily!  Since the banner look is SO hot right now, I added one across the top with the Tic Tac Toe game name!  The game pieces have magnets on the back so they store on the sign while you are playing or not.
