Corrie Jones is going to show us step-by-step how to make this fun travel-sized Checkers board!
TRAVEL CHECKERS by Corrie Jones
Supplies: Coronado Paper (35728) - Shoreline, Melbourne Paper (35718) - Shoreline, Biscayne Paper (35720) - Shoreline, Malibu Paper (35722) - Shoreline, Cambria Paper (35726) - Shoreline
For the board, cut out 1.5" squares from two different sheets of patterned paper.
Adhere these squares onto foam posterboard, starting with the lighter color at the right side corner, in a staggered pattern until the board is 8 squares by 8 squares. Paint Mod Podge over the top of the entire board when it's completed.
Add a 1/2 inch border around board in a third color for a finished look. The finished board will be 13 x 13".
For the checker pieces, you will need 24 bottle caps and two different colors of patterned paper. Use the bottle cap to trace 12 circles on each sheet of paper. (Or use a 1 inch circle punch to cut out the circles.)
Adhere the patterned papers inside the bottle caps. Let them dry completely.
Use Diamond Glaze inside the bottle caps to give the checker pieces a shiny, finished look and to make them more durable.
Now the girls have a travel Checkers set for all of our vacations this summer! To make it fit in the seat pocket, I cut the board in half and adhered a sheet of paper to the back to hold it together while they play, but allowing it to fold for storage.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
