DIY Backgammon Board
When we're outside, the smartphone stays in the bag, and we play backgammon - on a DIY backgammon board with hand-painted tokens.
What we need:
How we do it:
Apply handicraft tape on one side around both wooden boards and peel off the protective films.
Smoothly glue on the wax cloths.
Border the short sides of the boards with fabric tape. Simply place the boards in the center of a previously cut piece of fabric tape …
… and smooth it down on both sides of the edges. Cut off the remaining tape on the left and right sides.
Now border one long side of each board, and insert a piece of satin ribbon in the center of the oil cloth side.
Cut a narrow strip from the fabric tape, place the satin ribbon on the outside of the border and fix it with the fabric tape.
Place the two wooden boards next to each other - along the non-bordered long sides, with the wooden side up - and apply a strip of fabric tape in the Center.
Fold the board, and apply fabric tape in the center of the outer edge. Fold the exceeding tape over the sides.
Cut 12 triangles - 3.5 cm wide and 15 cm high - from each of the patterned papers. Apply glue to the back side of each paper triangle …
… and alternately apply 6 pieces on both sides of each wooden board.
Mask off half of each wooden token with masking tape and color 15 tokens with white and 15 with black paint.
After drying, remove the masking tape.
