Got some old game pieces you just can’t bear to part with. The fellow packrat in me feels your pain.  

This idea is very similar to the one I just posted for left over puzzle pieces. I wish I had thought of it before I threw out old selection of damaged games here at the cottage. Using blank craft store barrettes and brooches as well as thrift store picture frames, hot glue game pieces (old Scrabble letters, dice, game pieces, etc.) creatively on top. Another great idea for kids rooms. I think the Scrabble letter tiles would make a great photo frame for a teacher gift.
