Tics, Tacs And Toes
The idea to this is that you pick three items across a the tic-tac-toe table in whatever is written in. I picked sentiment/digi/flowers. I even went as far as to take the tic-tack-toe along with the three items.
Coming up with the idea!
This is what my project looks like in Cricut Design Space. I used basic shapes to make this so there are no SVG files that you will be required to purchase for this. I also used a digital paper I made specifically for this project.

Putting It All Together!
Usually for me, coloring is the most time consuming part. Putting together the individual items is a cinch. Lets get crafting!
I then cut out two rectangles, one out of red polka-dot print cardstock ( 1.5" x 4.5") and the other out of white cardstock (2.5" x 4.5"). I demarcated ever 1/5" along the white cardstock. I then placed both pieces right sides together. This left the markings on the outside. I made punches into both pieces at the same time to help keep this uniform.
Once I had the hole punches made, I used silver and rose eyelets and pressed them into each hole. After I used my black piece as a template in order to determine how far apart to thread my twine through. I threaded to the top and tied a bow.
Moving on....I then added double sided foam tape to my rectangles and adhered them down to the card base. tightened the lacing and tied off with a bow.
I wanted to have a birthday sentiment that reflected the tic-tac-toe in a way. I decided to use "Birthday Hugs & Kisses". I felt that the X's and heart-shaped O's was best expressed by this. I used two pieces of double sided tape one on top of the other to match the height of the black heart.
Viola! This is what the end result looked like...
