Hello loyal Oopsey Daisy readers! I am so excited to be a guest today.
I found these adorable Halloween elements and paper online from Echo Park Paper Co. I fell in love with it and immediately thought it would be perfect to make a fun Halloween Matching Game! So, today I want to share with you how I made mine.

I decided that since my printer is running low on colored ink, I would make a 5x7 image in Photoshop Elements to print out at my local photo place. I divided my 5x7 image in half and made two cards on each 5x7 image. I used the paper from Echo Park Paper Co. as my background and then added rounded rectangles on top. I then added elements and text to complete the Halloween cards.
I printed out the images TWICE at my local photo place as 5x7's and I love how inexpensive it was. Remember to print them out twice so that you can have a match for each image in the matching game!
Next, I cut each image in half.
I decided I liked the rounded corners look. So, I rounded each corner on each Halloween Card.
I then cut 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of black paper into 1/4's. I also rounded the corners on each black piece of card stock.
Next I glued my photo's onto the black card stock backing. I also laminated my cards for durability so they would last a long long time.
And ta da! You have a very fun and unique Halloween Matching Game that you can say you made!
And here is a picture of one of each of my Halloween Cards I made. I love how they turned out.
Thanks so much for allowing me to be a guest here today Alison! Happy Halloween!
Isn't she wonderful?! What a fun project! I always love a good matching game! This one is fabulous!
