Scrabble Tile Initial Backpack Strap

PROJECT C3000
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Personalize your backpack with this fun Scrabble tile backpack strap. It's a simple, crafty way to add your own initials and since there are 100 Scrabble tiles in the package, you can also give them as gifts.
Instructions
  1. Look through your Scrabble tiles and pick out your letters, either for your initials or your full name. I used three tiles with the letters A, B, and C for my backpack strap.
  2. To begin, take the cap off of your tube of E6000 and turn it upside down and puncture the tube's protective seal with the pointed tip inside the cap. Spread a thin layer of glue onto the bottom side of your first tile and attach it to the top side of your second tile. Follow this method until all of your preferred letters are glued together vertically.
  3. Turn your scrabble tile piece around, and dab a bit of glue to the backing of your top tile. Press half of your jump ring down into the glue leaving the other half open to link your strap from. Secure it with glue and wait a few minutes to dry.
  4. Once it's dry, loop on your cell phone strap.
  5. Next, take out your blue ultra suede fabric. You will be using it as a durable yet soft backing for your scrabble tiles. Place your Scrabble tiles on top of the fabric and trace with a pen. Cut out your suede fabric using your scissors.
  6. Once your Scrabble tiles are dry, spread a thin layer of craft glue on the back and place your cut piece of ultra suede on top. Press down.
  7. Wait 24 hours to dry and enjoy!
