Wild Wild West Memory Match Game

I know this isn't a new idea in the crafting/creating world, but I was looking at some scrap wood and decided to make a memory match game out of it!!

I made this super simple drawstring bag to hold all the pieces. I used that iron-on printable paper cotton stuff you can buy at the craft store . . . I know that isn't the technical term :)

I cut 20 approximately 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" pieces and painted them a light tan color. Then I cut up a 12 x 12 piece of cowboy themed scrapbook paper and mod-podged them to each square. Once they first coat was dry I inked all the edges with brown ink and let the ink dry. Then I applied another coat or 2 of mod podge over the top to give me a nice shiny finish.

I chose 10 wild west inspired images and converted them to SVG files and cut them out with my Cricut and SCAL software. I mod podged the images to cream colored paper and then mod-podged them to the wood. Inked the edges, then mod-podged again. SUPER EASY!!!

And, one last picture of the bag and the pieces. I LOVE how it turned out and it was super duper easy and it's going on the ETSY store!!!!
