Toot Toot Tuesday-TicTacToe Board

I have been trying to come up with something for this little wooden plaque that I bought for less than a dollar at some craft store forever ago! You can find these just about anywhere, and I don't know what I had in mind when I bought it, but it has been sitting in my craft cubbies for ages.
Mine is painted pink, I think I must have been bored one day...or had extra pink paint on a tray or something!
My two older kids have really been into playing tic-tac-toe lately, and I thought I'd save some paper, and make them a re-usable board to play on.
First I painted over the top of that ghastly pink with chalkboard paint.
I left the groove pink, and painted the edges with the black.
Then I took some white contact paper and used the grids to cut out a piece big enough for my cricut mat.
Then I let that cute little insect cut out the words tic tac and toe to put across the top (in the All Mixed Up font in a 1 inch setting).
You could also use white paint and just hand paint or use a stencil instead of the "vinyl".I then cut 4 strips of the contact paper with scissors, purposely making them a little crazy to go with the look of it, and just stuck those on there as the playing board.After I had the front all done, I cut 3 squares of felt.I used my sewing machine to make a small little pouch, you could hand sew this or even hot glue it together.Then I used a hot glue gun to attach the pouch to the back of the board. I put a piece of chalk in the pouch and the third piece of felt to use as an eraser, so that I don't have tissues or paper towels being wasted for that.Turn it around and you have yourself a fun little game to play whenever and wherever.
This would be a fun thing to take for road trips, and it's something your kids could help you make for birthday presents for their friends or siblings for cheap.
Plus it fits easily on the bookshelf when not in use, or you could attach a ribbon and hang it on the wall.

I love it, great tutorial, as usual. So did you use the contact paper as a stencil or is that what the letters are cut out of? I just got a Cricut for Christmas and am learning the ins and outs of it.

Ooops. Found my way here via Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch but I see you haven't put a link back to her Met Monday on here. I am sure she would appreciate the link back as is customary.
