DIY Tic Tac Toe Game with Cricut
Pink is the new orange when it comes to Halloween lately! Pastels have hit the scene and Halloween decor has never been cuter! I was looking through some designs in Cricut Design Space and these little skulls and pumpkins caught my eye. I wanted to make something new and thought these would be great for a DIY Tic Tac Toe Game! Let’s go over what you need to get started with this fun project…
What you will need:
Knife Blade or Deep Point Blade (I recommend the Knife Blade if you have the time!)
This Project I created in Cricut Design Space
I created a quick video showing the cut and assembly process, check it out below…
Let’s go through the steps…
Open the design in Cricut Design Space. Click Make It to print the tic tac toe pieces on sticker paper. Load your inkjet printer with the sticker paper and print. I select bleed and use the system dialog to select my printing preferences. With my printer, I select High Quality and Photo Paper as my material.
Once printed, remove the backing of the sticker paper and apply it to the mat board. Be sure to get it as close to the corner as possible. Use a brayer to secure the adhesive.
In Cricut Design Space select your material to Matboard. You can use the Deep Point Blade but I recommend using the Knife Blade. This will take quite a bit longer, but it cut the mat board better in my experience. Calibrate if needed. Secure the Mat board to the Strong Grip Mat with masking tape and move the white wheels on the machine all the way over to the right-hand side and Cut. When done, remove the pieces from the mat.
Cover the mat board with black vinyl and load it on the mat to cut the tic-tac-toe grid. Use the same mat board settings and blade you used for the pieces. Cut and when done, remove it from the mat.
For the game board, apply pink vinyl to the mat board and load it on the mat. Use the same mat board settings and blade you used for the pieces. Cut and when done, remove it from the mat. (You can also do this part by hand, simply cut the matboard and vinyl with a cutting knife and ruler. It should measure 6×6 inches.)
Apply adhesive to the back of the black grid and place the grid on top of the pink backboard.
And that’s it! Isn’t it darling and unique? Using this technique, you can make any style of tic tac toe game, just switch out your images in Cricut Design Space to make it your own.
