My Mom loves games. She always plays games with the kids when we go up to her house. So when I saw this idea I knew I had to do it for her.
I started with a purchased memory game...I have been searching the thrift store for a month with no luck! The game I purchased ended up not having one of those trays to hold the cards so I came up with my own box.
I took the cards and spay painted them. First pink (because that is what I had, that or orange?) It didn't cover well so I spay them white. Then for fun I went back over with a quick spotty pink job. I like how it turned out.
I printed the pictures on sticker paper 2" X 2". It covered the cards perfectly. I sprayed the cards with a clear acrylic. This made the paper a little transparent. I would paint that side of the card first if I were to make this game again.
She will be here today so we will see if it is a hit or not!
