True Scrabble lovers tend to have a few things in common. Namely, we can pull two-letter words out of nowhere, we understand the thrill of hitting a triple-word score and a triple-letter score with just one word and, of course, we feel an immense amount of love for those little letter tiles. (They're just so cute.)

So in honor of National Scrabble Day — yes, there really is a holiday for everything — we rounded up a few crafts that let you take your love of Scrabble beyond the board.
