Step 1
Project Note: The Crop-a-dile™ is "Adult Use Only".
 
Click here to download and print the template. Set aside.  
Step 2
Fold the Raspberry felt sheet in half along the 12" side. Make a mark where the fold is, on each side and in the center. Open the felt back up and use the ruler to lightly make a line connecting the marks. 
Step 3
Lay out the Orchid felt sheet. Apply a line of glue along the marked line on the Raspberry felt and turn the felt sheet over on top of the Orchid felt. The glue should be in between the two felt sheets. Make sure all sides of the felt are lined up evenly and press your finger along the glue line to adhere the two pieces together. 
Step 4
Next, glue the edges of the short sides together, leaving each long end of the felt sheets open. This creates a pouch on either end to store the tic tac toe pieces. 
Step 5
Cut 4 strips of white felt about ½" x 9". Glue the strips onto the Orchid side to make the tic tac toe grid. 
Step 6
Cut the patterns from the template. Trace the larger heart on the Bright Lilac felt and the smaller heart from the white felt sheets. Cut out. 
Step 7
Fold the felt mat in half so that the tic tac toe board is the inside and the Raspberry side is the outside cover. Glue the smaller white heart to the larger Bright Lilac heart and then glue to the front cover to decorate. 
Step 8
Add name using the foam alphabet stickers. 
Step 9
Thread pony beads onto two white chenille stems. Leave about 2" free at each end of the stems. 
Step 10
ADULT: Open the tie tac toe mat and punch a hole in the top left and top right corners of both pouch ends of the mat. 
Step 11
For each pouch side, insert one end of the chenille stem through a corner punched hole and twist to secure. Insert the other end of the chenille stem through the opposite corner hole and twist to secure. Fold the mat in half, and the pony beaded chenille stems serve as a handle for carrying the mat. 
Step 12
Choose 6 hearts of the same color and insert into one pouch to store. Choose 6 hearts of another color and insert into the other pouch to store. The hearts are the game pieces for the Tic Tac Toe Travel Game.
