She designed the bags seen above to contain holiday Scrabble tiles to use as a memory matching game. Young kids enjoy memory games and they are such a great tool to help them learn.
My own idea would involve using larger bags. Kelly used the 3x5-inch size of muslin bags, but I saw 4x6 and 5x7-inch bags on Etsy, where she purchased hers.
So here's my idea. I guess it was the title of Kelly's post -- "Holiday Memory Matching Game" -- that got me thinking. In the past, I have made a couple different memory games using photos and Shutterfly offers. Here are screenshots of the front and back of a card from each game I made with Shutterfly.
Each memory game from Shutterfly has 12 scenes on it with 2 of each card -- so, 24 cards. The game cards are 3 inches square.
So I thought, wouldn't it be nifty to combine my idea with Kelly's idea and make holiday memory games -- and then make decorated drawstring bags to put them in? This would not only make a really nice gift presentation, but would provide a great way to store the game between uses. I think I'll order some of the plain muslin bags (or, alternatively, make up a few) and have them ready for the next Shutterfly memory game I make!
