Tic Tac Toe CD Case

I made this Tic Tac Toe game a couple of years ago. It is made in a regular (not slim) jewel cd case.The first step in making this is to carefully remove the inside piece that holds the cd. It can be snapped out easily by sliding something thin like a nail file between it and the box, but be careful not to break the cd box itself. After that is removed, it will leave an open space in the side end that will easily hold a mini pen or pencil. The pen I used came with the chain attached. It is one of those with 4 to a card for 99 cents. I heated an awl to melt a small hole in the end of the cd to insert the chain. I made a little barrell to slide the pen into by rolling up a small piece of card stock and used a strong glue to hold it in place. That makes a place for the pen to stay put and not just dangle. After that all you need to do is choose your graphics and print them into the template parts, cut them out and place them into the cd case. I used small dot of glue on the corners to hold the papers in place. I added a small 2x2 stick it note pad inside the front cover to keep scores and I made a small envelope to hold the playing pieces. Tip: I used a printable magnet sheet for the game card on the back inside and also for the game pieces. That way you have a magnetic game and the pieces will not be sliding everywhere. The other graphics were printed on card stock. That's about it. You can download all the templates to make the tic tac toe cd game here. I included all pieces necessary, including the envelope and game piece template, to make this tic tac toe game kit
