P.S. This is the class that I sliced my index finger pretty good. I forgot I had a sheet of aluminum in my paper file and I reached in forgetting all about it and cut myself really good.
I covered the back of the Pac-Man game board with some red paper and added a piece of an old Bingo card that I had. Once I had that glued down the song kept playing through my head so it had to be out on the page. The binding strip on this one is from a set of old blue prints that I found at an estate sale, the day before I left for the retreat, from the 1958. (It was only $5.00 for role of about 30 big sheets.)
The second page is an old 45 record that my neighbor gave me after I gushed about how cool the red transparent plastic was. My friend Marita actually scrambled to send me some records to use for this class but that red record was just too cool to pass up using it. (I found a bunch at the same estate sale as I found the blue prints at.)
If your wondering how I was able to cut the record.... well the teacher told us to use plain old scissors. Believe it or not it worked and it was pretty easy to do. She said if the record seemed a little thicker to try kitchen shears or to score it few times with a craft knife and then snap it. (It will naturally break on the score line.) Even it breaks a little uneven it doesn't matter because it will be hidden by the binding strip.
The second page is another file folder that has some printed packing tape covering it. It has the tag shapes to it because the back has 3 tags attached to it. The binding strip is plain card stock that I covered with Tim Holtz tissue tape and then I added a strip of numbers from a Dymo labeler.
Here you can see the tags on the back of the previous page. They were samples I made for one of the Tim Holtz challenges from the Studio L3 blog. The second page is a "Sorry" game board that I cut apart. I drilled holes in 4 of the game pieces to hang along the bottom. I also cut the words "sorry" from one of the game cards.
On the back of the Sorry game board I attached some more math flash cards and added the "incorrect" answers with some die cut numbers. The facing page is a piece of packaging plastic that I stamped with white Staz-On ink. I also stamped the cross-word puzzle and added my saying inside it. I didn't add a lot more to this page other then the blue puzzle pieces because you can see the other pages through it and I didn't want to cover that up.
The back of the clear plastic page is mostly "Trivial Pursuit" stuff. I cut apart the answers from a card and glued them to blank tickets. I then cut the title from the directions card and added it to my saying.
The chess page is made from a bamboo placemat. I made the chess board from striped paper that I cut into strips and the chess pieces are punched from glossy paper. The binding strip is a file folder covered with more of the printed packing tape and it also has a zipper added next to the edge.
For the back of the bamboo placemat page I added another math flashcard and the letters are from Tim Holtz. They were originally black plastic but I dressed them up with a metallic gold paint pen from Krylon.
So that's it for today. Be sure and stop by tomorrow to see more.
