Easy DIY Personalized Game PiecesWe love playing board games as a family at our house. When I saw my custom family characters on my Me & My Peeps notes, I thought they would make darling game pieces. Choosing the characters was so much fun. There were dozens of characters to choose from, each having a different hobby or personality trait.
My kids thought the game pieces were so much fun! It was nice to replace our missing/chewed up/broken original game pieces with custom game pieces for every member of the family. My hope is that we'll be able to keep them in one place and use them for all of our board games.
Start with two Me & My Peeps folded notes. You can customize your own note cards with characters that look like your family members. You get to choose from a large variety of characters and pick hair, skin, and clothing colors for each family member. So cute! The colorful characters really pop on the bright white cardstock which is really sturdy so it is sure to hold up in the mail or in the hands of little kids.
Cut two of each character into a 1 1/4" wide strip and adhere them back-to-back.
Trace a 1 1/4" diameter circle punch onto each game piece and trim away the excess.
Now your cute little peeps are ready for binder clips.
Remove the handles from the binder clips and spray paint. If you are lucky enough to find white or decorative clips, bonus!
After the spray paint is dry, add a piece of washi tape to each binder clip. I customized the binder clips with everyone's favorite color.
Insert the clip handles by gently pinching the ends together and sliding them into the openings.
Secure the game piece in the binder clip.
Remove the handles from the binder clip and your custom game piece is finished!
Time to play! The binder clips balance easily and make a cool clicking sound when you move them from space to space.
