I’m starting to think about holiday gifts…and so I’ll be sharing a bunch of ideas for handmade holiday gifts over the next few weeks. I made this cute little matching game using wood craft disks and Citra Solv. It’s easy to make, inexpensive and the recipient will love the handmade quality! It’s a great game to throw in your purse for on-the-go entertainment….for all ages.
The cute little animals are from a free (personal use) font called Pixel Farms. You can download the font an create a template but I also uploaded my template at the bottom of this post to make it easy on you.
I put the game in a muslin bag. I added the graphic to the front using iron-on transfer paper:

And each player gets a turn to flip them over until a pair matches:
