When Husband is Away, Wife will ...Create!
Well my husband had hockey last night so after I put the little one to sleep I slipped into my craft room and came up with this! A homemade memory match game!
I was wondering how to use up scrap paper (besides making cards), when at a garage sale I came upon these rectangular chipboard pieces perfect for this project! I also found the tin at the same garage sale, add some great paper and stamps and VOILA! you have a game ( not to mention a cute decor piece for my girlies room)!
I used random scraps of paper from various companies and a handful of Close to my Heart stampsets focusing mostly on the Childhood Portrait set. I painted the chipboard in an off white and stamped images with black ink. If you're looking for ideas for scraps this worked really well, if you can't find precut rectangular chipboard, cut your own (the size of mine was 1.5 x 2.5).
Have a super day!
