OTP's really, really aren't my thing. I try, and I *sometimes* enjoy the process - but for the most part I would rather spend my time creating a layout or a card. So, I wasn't all that excited about the Advertising Design class at My Scrapbook Nook.
"Your assignment is about PACKAGING, to alter an item found in your kitchen or make your own food packaging." I chose to alter some packaging. Less than a week ago I altered a drinking chocolate tub, so I had to think of something different. I think this is why I don't "do" OTP's - I get stuck at the ideas stage.
I started with this:
And finished with this:

(I-spy more Basic Grey - Lime Rickey this time, not quite as old as some of the papers I have in my stash)
No complicated instructions needed for this one. If I can do it, anyone can! Cover the box, decorate as desired, add a protective coat of Mod Podge. Paint the bottle lids, top with matching paper circles, coat with Mod Podge. Add alphas. Be sure to leave an opening on one end of the box so the tokens can be stored inside.
Here's another look, viewed from the other side. The Pink Paislee letters say 'Noughts and Crosses' around three edges of the box, and on top I've added 'Tic Tac Toe' in the Cosmo Cricket 'Tiny Type' alphabet stickers. The x's and o's are American Crafts foam 'Thickers':
In the end, the finished project made me smile and it wasn't such a bad assignment after all.
