Memory Card Game or Concentration

I was looking around the internet for ideas to use up my scraps of paper. I just can't bear to throw any pieces out. However, I do have a clean out about every six months. I grab the container and with my eyes closed make my way to the bin and dispose of my bits and pieces and start again.

Anyways, I spied a Memory Card Game using different scraps of paper. So I have made a couple of sets up for my Etsy store. They were were so much fun to make and so wonderful to give that little piece of paper a purpose. I have wrapped pieces of cereal box in a bright coloured paper. Then stamped on the back .....for the green set I have used an image from the SU Priceless set. The star image I bought years ago and it doesn't have a name on it. Then the front of the cards I used my Spellbinder Nestablities Scalloped Edged Circle and Octagons to cut the shapes for the card. Some of the cards I have added cute little stickers.


  1. ooh Merry I winced when I read of you throwing out bits! My box just grows and grows although I have found a new game of my own - using my MS butterfly punch to make pretty butterflies! This is a great idea and more productive than mine LOL!

  2. Well aren't you clever. An idea I would never have thought of. Well done!
