Time to do some crafting. Maybe this is something you can make as a gift for Christmas or prepare it for a lazy game Sunday with the family. It is not only fun to play this game, but to make up your own patterns with all of your pretty washi tapes.

All you need is a box full of plain memory cards, should be available in every bigger craft store and a whole lot of different washi tapes with pretty colors and patterns.

Always take two plain cards and tape the same pattern on them. My cards were almost the perfect size, so that four stripes of tape fitted almost completely on the card. Cut the ends really close at the edges, so nothing overlaps.

If you want to make this game a little harder, choose patterns that differ only in slight color shades or for example stripes, that are straight and cross in the same color. Thus it’s harder to tell the cards apart, when they are turned seperately. And you will most likely find it harder getting the right pair.

    Hi Sabine, I love this project! I’m an occupational therapist who works with adults and we use memory games for cognitive re-training and I really like how this one is not juvenile-looking. I went to my local craft store today and purchased a big container of washi tape, but they didn’t have the blank memory cards. Do you mind if I ask what store you purchased yours? Could I buy them online?

    Hey Corinne, wow, this is amazing. Its so cool, that you can use these cards in therapy 🙂 makes me a little bit proud.

    I just looked, if I can find an international online store, who has blanko memory cards, but didnt find one. Here in Germany you can get these cards in every bigger craft supply store (like http://de.opitec.com/opitec-web/articleNumber/422217/zz/cID/c3I6bWVtb3J5OQ==). Sorry, I cant help you with this.
