Like the classic game played with normal number cards.
All cards must be faced down on the table and players take turns to flip two cards at a time to find the pairs.
Once all the cards are gone the player with the most pairs is the winner!

Step 1: Step 1: Choose Your Photos!
This is the fun part! Simply choose the photos you wish to include (depending on the desired effect of the gift) and copy/scan/print them to the correct sizing for your cards (mine were 5x7 cm) and make sure you have 2 of each photo.
You don't necessarily need to use photos -quotes, drawings, lyrics and anything else can be included instead!
Step 2: Step 2: Making the Cards
What you need:
-Scissors or paper cutter
-Card or paper to use as the card
Cut the card into equally sized pieces using above tools. I cut mine to 5x7 cm but you can have what ever size you like.
Note ~The backs of the cards must be identical for the game to work effectively.
Step 3: Step 3: Cut Up Your Photos!
Cut up all you photos to the appropriate size, ensuring there are two of each photo.
Step 4: Step 4: Get Sticking!
Stick all your photos to the back of the prepared cards!
Step 5: Step 5: Make Some Packaging
Find a little box somewhere which can be used as packaging for your "memory" cards.
Pimp it up a little by adding a splash or paint or covering in paper so you have a nice little gift box!
Step 6: Step 6: Make It Pretty!
Use any decorations you have and get creative to make your gift look extraordinary!
Then you're all done! You've now got a beautiful personalised gift bound to bring a smile to someone's face!
