Are you a Scrabble fan?

Are you a person who still enjoys a board game? Of course you are! Well here is a really innovative idea from Lou Hamer using old Scrabble board games to make up names of your family or friends. It is a great idea for perhaps a friend or family who loves Scrabble. You could spell out your children's names (as featured below) or maybe a friend who you might have challenged to a game in the past. 

The letters are glued into place on the Scrabble board. 

 

Then the board is over mounted with in this case an off white mount board. 

 

Once the frame is chosen the glass needs to be elevated away from the letters. This is called a box frame technique and is a technique mentioned many times on this blog and utilised many times at the Petersfield Framing Studios

 

The box frame is a great way to create a 3-D effect and also protects the Scrabble board for years to come. This particular version is on display along the corridor on the way to my workshop. Lou Hamer will make these to order for you so why not visit her website for more details on Lou's Home Sewn products.
