This Christmas I am trying to be very careful financially (aren't we all!) I was widowed 3 years ago and am raising my 12 year old daughter alone. I have 3 wonderful adult children as well as five adorable grandjoys. So my gift giving needs to include some lovingly created gifts as well as what I am able to purchase.
I found this idea over at Burlap & Blue. She had made a project that I thought was so sweet, so I was inspired to make my own version of the personalized memory game.
I used my round 1" circle punch and some really cute scrapbook paper. (It's hard to tell but there are tiny white polka dots on the pink paper):
I used the punch to cut out both the faces and the circles for the back of the pieces. To adhere them to the chips I used a permanent glue dot runner, so no moisture would effect the pics. These are the finished result for a grandgirl:
Each game has 16 pieces, 2 of each face and features each cousin and 2 of their Aunt Maddy (my 12 year old). The boys have blue paper on blue chips and they all have little drawstring bags I sewed for storage. Total cost of ALL supplies for the gifts: $6.00. Not too bad!!!
Thanks for stopping by. I cherish your comments and would so love to have you as a follower! Linking up to the parties below and have a blessed Thanksgiving!
