Quick and Easy Match Game

Good day, blog friends.
:o)
Today I'd like to show you a little memory match game that I made for my four-year old nephew {Stone} for Christmas.


This little gift happened a bit by accident. I was working on photos for my Project Life after Stone's birthday party, and created a Photoshop grid of 2"x2" photos for a small sectioned off page for my book. When I printed the photos, I accidentally printed an extra sheet. "Argh!" I thought, "What a waste of ink!"

What to do...what to do...

I know! I'll print another sheet so there are two of each photo, punch the photos out with my square punch, back with a square of red cardstock, and I'll have a memory match game to use as Stone's Christmas gift!

I think he's going to love it.

I have a clear plastic box to hold all the pieces - just need to decide if I'm going to embellish it or leave it as is. This little gift couldn't have been more simple, and I know Stone will love flipping these photos over and seeing the faces of people he loves, along with fun memories from his fourth birthday party.

Now if the rest of my Christmas gifts would come together this easy...
:o)

Perfect! I'm going to pin this so I remember to do this for Caleb when he's older.

Brilliant indeed! I think clear plastic would be great - so he could see it all the time.
