Hello! I can’t believe that we just finished up with Christmas and we are already rolling out the Valentine’s Day projects. But peeps need ideas early so that they have time to make them, right? Today is Under $10 on the 10th! That’s where a group of bloggers get together and share ideas on the 10th of the month for under $10.00! Of course, our theme this month is Valentine’s Day so I’m sharing the easiest Valentine’s Tic Tac Toe Bags!
When you are finished here, be sure and head on over to all of the other ladies sites who are participating.
I’ll be sure and put their links to their sites at the bottom of this page to make it easy for you to visit them!
Here’s a list of supplies that you will need:
Determine the Size of you Tic Tac Toe board
To determine the size of my board, I laid out one of the bags and grabbed one of the candies that I plan on using and measured it.
Each space needed to be 3/4″square.
Mark Your Tic Tac Toe Board
Using a chalk pencil, I marked the center of my heart.
Half of 3/4″ is 3/8″.
Mark 3/8″ on either side of your center mark.
Using a ruler, lightly draw lines vertically using the previous marks.
Erase the center line.
Do the same steps as above only do so horizontally.
You have now laid out your Tic Tac Toe Board.
Paint your board’s lines.
Using a paint marker, paint over the chalk lines that you marked for the board.
I did not go all the way to the edge of my heart, but liked the look of leaving about a quarter of an inch of space from the edge.
If your painted lines aren’t as dark as you would like them to be, paint over them a second time.
Make sure that your first coat has dried before adding the second coat.
As you can see, the grid is perfect for playing tic tac toe!
Just add a tag and your gift is ready to hand out!
I also think that these would make cute gift bags!
Just paint on a monogram, pop in a small gift or candy and you have a super cute gift!
My Valentine’s Tic Tac Toe bags were super easy, took very little time and cost almost nothing.
Bags: 3 for $1.25
Candy: 1 bag for $1.25
I had the paint pen, chalk marker and the ruler already.
Cost for just the bag and candy: $0.88 each.
Cost for bag, candy and paint pen: $1.63 per bag.
Well, under $10.00!
Now I hope that you will join me in visiting all of the other participants to see what wonderful ideas that they are sharin
Until Next time,
