t1is004 Party Games
Ouija Board Game and
Pin the Tail on the Donkey Game

 

What you need to have on hand:

  • X-acto knife and fresh blade
  • Small detailing scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Metal straight edge ruler
  • Small artist's paintbrush
  • Small piece of aluminum foil to use as "glue pot"
  • Fast-grab, quick-dry glue. Nicole sells a great one. White craft glue takes too long to dry and is messy. Glue stick will work, but becomes brittle and pops loose after time.
  • Cutting surface. You get a much better cut than with cardboard and your blade will last so much longer.

 
1. Cut out all pieces for both games.  Use the straight edge ruler to press against fold lines. This will give you clean straight creases. Fold at all fold lines on all pieces.

Note: Use the blade tool to cut the little tight spots such as those on the donkey tails.

Take the planchette storage box piece and place a layer of glue to the long side tab.


 
2. Press tab against inner side panel to form box.
 

 
3. Place glue to the bottom long tab and close up the end of the planchette box.

 
4. Fold the planchette panels down the middle seam and glue.

 
5. Trim the outer rim of the planchette.

  
6. Use tweezers to position and glue the three black beads to the under side of the planchette. These act as feet.

 
7.  Take the folded box top. Glue the tiny four tabs in place.

 
8. Glue down the lining panels found on each side of the box top. Use tweezers to squeeze the glued fold line. This makes the edges thin and uniform so that the top will fit on the bottom. Repeat for both boxes' tops and bottoms.

 
9. Fold the Ouija board in half and glue blank sides together.

Glue beads to underside of board or balsa wood strips to make it look more realistic.
