Turn A Scrabble Board Into A Picture Frame

If you have a copy of Scrabble that is past its prime—perhaps missing a few pieces here or there—turn the board into a unique picture frame. Over at the photo tips and tricks blog Photojojo, they have a tutorial on turning old game boards into picture frames. The tutorial has step by step instructions for converting a Scrabble board for picture mounting, but includes photo samples of other boards. What makes Scrabble boards so suitable for this repurposing, aside from their near-ubiquity in closet shelves, is the framing possibilities with the word tiles. Photojojo's project requires some thin cork backing, a utility knife, ruler, tape, velcro tabs, thumbtacks, and glue, along with the game itself. Not a particularly outlandish supply list, and many of the steps can be tweaked if you're missing just one item.
