Supplies:

{from Pick Your Plum}

I used the 20 bottle caps that Ashley sent me.
I also had some metal sheets that I had bought from Pick Your Plum.
I had my husband cut them to 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch squares.

You’ll also need:

wood blocks (6 inches x 6 inches)
paint (I used red & pink for mine.)
Valentine scrapbook paper
mod podge/foam brush
1 inch circle punch
hot glue
vinyl X’s & O’s (I used the Comic Sans MS font.)
vinyl tic tac toe grid
adhesive squares
adhesive magnet strips

I cut a piece of scrapbook paper to fit my block. 
Then I mod podged my scrapbook paper to my block of wood. 
While the blocks dried I cut some 1 inch circles out
of my scrapbook paper with my 1 inch hole punch.

Then I got my circles & applied the vinyl X’s & O’s right onto the paper.
Then I got my bottle caps from Pick Your Plum & some adhesive squares.

I used the adhesive squares to attach my X’s & O’s to the inside of the bottle caps.
Then I put the clear circles that came with the bottle caps on top.
They are sticky on one side & stick right on top.  Next you’ll need your magnetic strip.

I cut the magnet strip into smaller pieces
& then stuck them on the back of the bottle caps.
Applied my vinyl tic tac toe grid to my sheet metal. 
Then I hot glued the metal to my block of wood.
Now it’s time to play a little {Valentine} tic tac toe!
