January Limelight Project Parade

This month's Project Parade is a project you would do with or for kids. So I chose a project for a kid. I made a Memory game, complete with cards and a holder. Here's the outside:

And the game cards:

To make the cards: I cut out 1-1/2" white squares and stamped a bunch of matching accessories from Dress Up Billy and Dress Up Lily. I colored them very quickly and simply with copics. I mounted them on 1-3/4" black squares. There are 20 cards total, 10 each of different items.

To make the holder/pouch: I cut a 3-1/4" x 12" piece of spooky circles/black swirls paper, and scored at 5, 5-1/2, 10-1/2, and 11". The spooky circle side didn't go well with my theme, so I covered up that side with various patterns of Offbeat paper. I added a self-adhesive velcro dot to keep it closed. On the outside, I used a cuttlebug alphabet (red tag) for the letters and some more Offbeat paper. I added some white crochet thread to an Offbeat button and attached it to the front with glue dots. On the inside, I attached a clear plastic baggie (it's actually the bag that ribbon comes in from Limelight - there, I recycled and reused!) with 4 eyelet brads.

Head on over to the other design team members' blogs and see what they have come up with!
