The Game Challenge #4

This week's challenge at The Game is Hopscotch with a twist.

"Put the numbers 1-8 on paper and place in a bowl. Draw out 2. Refer to the hopscotch board and use what that number says and how many (meaning the number on the paper). Make something you can hang on a wall. 4x4 or larger on chipboard or canvas."

Here's the hopscotch board:

And here's my entry:

I had 5 and 6. So that was 5 buttons and 6 inches of ribbon.

This was my first ever 4x4!

I decided to make a hanging door plaque for my brother. I used chipboard, which I covered with some black paper. Then I poked holes in the top corners to thread some ribbon through to hang it with (no idea of the ribbon's brand). Then I took 4 buttons from a "Blast Off" collection (I don't remember the brand; I just remember the collection name because it was why I brought them... I did look, but I can't find them on the site any more), and another star shaped one from a pack of tactile ones I got from the RNIB and glued them to it. After that I added a braille "Carl" with dymo labelling tape (also from the RNIB). And I finished by decorating some of the space left with a few small stickers I had from somewhere.

Why not see what you can come up with for this challenge? Then hop on over to The Game to enter your projects in the challenge!
