A Keepsake Memories Memory Game-Great GIft Idea For Kids!

 This is a memories memory game. I made them for my niece and nephews last Christmas and they loved them! (I saw something similar on a blog a few years ago and changed it to make it mine and I can not remember where it was from so if it was you please tell me and I will be more than happy to give credit where credit is due)
Here is what you will need:
1. A memory game
2. Double Prints of the photos you intend to use.
3. Modge Podge and brush
4. Scissors
5.A container to put your new game in if you don't intend to put it back in the original box
6. an acid free pen unlike me the bad naughty baby who used a plain ol' ball point pen

1. Open the box (Tee Hee!)


2. Pop the cards out of the frame and save the frame. It makes a great tool for tracing and sizing the photos to match the cards perfectly!


                                


3. Trace the picture

4. Use the first photo as a template so you will know exactly where to cut the second print. (So the pictures will "match")

5. Modge Podge the photos to the original memory cards and add a coat to the top as well to seal.

6. Embellish your container how ever you see fit! I also made some vinyl for the lid that said the child's name.


(if you place the first photo over the second photo you will have a perfect alignment so that the photos are both cut the same)
