Inspiration for this challenge comes from my teenage years when my family, and a
couple others, would rent a mountain cabin at Lake Arrowhead, CA during winter
break. With lots of snow and winter activities to keep us busy on most days, there was an
occasional day when we were snowed in. What did we do to pass the time, you ask?
Board Games, of course [or as we liked to call them, BORED Games.]
Here is my creation - a toy that would help even adults from going stir crazy. Created
from things one would find readily available around a mountain cabin, I hope you enjoy
giving this a try and putting your very own spin on it. Have Fun!
Time Required: 45 minutes + drying time
1. Find a spool of ribbon and remove one of the cover pieces.
2. I painted the spool piece with Creative Medium – Bronze Metallic for a beautiful shine
and texture. Then I took some VersaCraft Ink [Ultramarine] and painted the top and
bottom piece. This is a thicker ink that covers cardboard well.
