Default Scrabble tile necklaces?

I'm thinking about giving these a try...Are they made the same way as bottlecaps? 1" square punch, stick the picture on use ET to glaze? Also where can I get some good tiles? TIA!

I don't make caps, but for the tiles, I cut out the images stick them to the tiles (I use mod podge), seal (again I use mod podge), and then glaze with ET or your preferred method. They're fun and so cute!

They are made the same way as bottle caps. Except scrabble tiles are not 1" square so a 1" punch wouldn't help you. They best way is to hand cut them with an exacto knife. You can find old scrabble games very cheap at thrift stores, goodwill or even garage sales. Some people have had success posting a want ad on ther freecycle yahoo group! But you can always buy them on Etsy or directly from the Hasbro website. They sell replacement tiles for the games. HTH!

Thank you! =) So the tiles are actually game pieces...how do you attach the hook for the necklace? Drill through them?

I think youcan do that, but I think most people buy bails and attach them to the back.

Yes they are actual game pieces. Most people use those aaranku (sp?) bails and glue them on the back. I guess you could drill a hole, but it wouldn't be much fun.

there's a 7/8 punch you can get, you will still have a little extra that will need to be cut or filed off the side.
