Time for a riddle: What do the MUSE line of vinyl cutters and a popular outdoor game have in common? Individuality!
Over the last couple of years, many people have found themselves spending more time at home or in small social groups than they had previously been doing. After searching for ways to keep kids (and parents) and singles entertained at home, they have discovered new ways to entertain themselves. This has caused a resurgence in popularity of old-fashioned games. Depending on the region, you may know one of these games by the name corn hole/cornhole, corn toss, bean bag toss, tailgate toss, or soft horseshoes – depending on your region. In the South, it is most often called corn hole to describe the contents of the original bag thrown and, well, what you are trying to toss the corn into.
Use MUSE & Artisan Add Style
This simple, fun, competitive game for all ages can be built from scratch. And there is a creative and easy way to make it uniquely yours. Decorating it is part of the fun of having this game in your back yard or at tailgate parties. The MUSE line of vinyl cutters, paired with your favorite decorative vinyl colors, can give you just the “look” you need to stand out when you become the neighborhood CHC (Corn Hole Champion).
Depending on the wood used and the décor that is added prior to buying it, corn hole game boards can be quite expensive. Gone are the days of plain old plywood corn toss games. They can be quite fancy! Building and decorating your own board is a nice way to show your style, and you can involve your family in the process. Some people decorate with flags, team logos, and family names. Others have “champion boards” they present to the champions after winning a bracket. Restaurants and parks have this game and decorate their boards with their business and city names.

Surfboards, Longboards, and Skateboards
Once you think about it, the opportunities for crafters and businesses to create custom designs are not just limited to corn toss or other outdoor uses. MUSE vinyl cutters are a great tool for using vinyl in personalizing all kinds of items for sports and games. For example, search for “surfboard decor” on a popular crafts-selling website and you will find hundreds of ways to decorate (and distribute) custom-decorated mini surf boards. While they are not used for the actual sport, they are quite popular for art projects and wall decoration, and can would be a perfect project for a business to promote, especially in coastline states.
Then there are skateboards and longboards. Young and old have been decorating their boards and mind buckets (helmets) for years with vinyl designs. Yet another opportunity to use MUSE vinyl cutters to create rad customized art.
Whether you are looking to jazz up your home corn toss boards, or another game or decorating item, the MUSE Series offers great choices of vinyl cutters and value-packed starter bundles to support your creativity. Maybe you can psyche out your opponents by putting a shark with your face on your corn toss board!
