|First, you need to choose your pictures and print them. I choose to use some photos actually created by someone else and had them printed at Walgreens as 5 x7's. This saved me time and also saved a lot of ink in my printer.|
|Than, cut each photo in half.|
|I than rounded the corners on my photos - I liked the look better than the pointed edges.|
|You will also need scrapbook paper or card stock to attach the pictures too. Cut your paper just slightly larger than the photos and, again, I rounded the edges.|
|Finally, I did laminate them with contact paper. I would suggest, if you have access to a laminating machine, use that instead. Contact paper isn't as permanent since you don't get the heat element and I do have a few cards that are peeling.|
1) First, this was the original link I saw and it includes the instructions as well as a place to purchase and download Halloween/fall clip art . I had originally planned to do this so I had the pictures but since time was running out I "cheated". http://oopsey-daisy.blogspot.com/2010/10/special-guest-post-halloween-matching.html
2) Here is my "cheating" post - this is from a blogger who created the cards and made them available to save and use. The downside is using someone else's choice of photos but this saved me so much time, I couldn't pass it up!
I'm hoping to be able to make one of these games for Christmas too. I think that seasonal things, like this, for kids are great because you can pull them out and play with them to get the excitement around a holiday built up. What a great way to make memories!
