5 Ways to Repurpose Old Games

3. Board Game Bookmark

This is a simple craft you can do with either the board itself or the box. To create your bookmark, just use scissors or a box cutter to cut a 2″ x 6″ rectangle. If you’re using a box, you can punch a hole at the top and even use a corner rounder to make things extra fancy. Tie a ribbon in the hole at the top, and you’re ready to roll!

For the heavier cardboard of the board itself, a corner rounder is probably not such a viable option. Use a nail, dremel, or very thin drill bit to create a hole at the top, then tie your ribbon. You might also need some very fine-grained sand paper to smooth the edges of the cardboard.
