Miniature Memory Game Tutorial

{Not the crafty type? You can purchase a Miniature Memory Game in shop}
I know you’ll agree with me when I say some of the best things come in small packages.  I’m a sucker for anything miniature.

This craft is simple, will keep your children entertained + is just the right size to stash in your purse (you never know when you’ll need something to keep the little ones busy).

To make this 14 piece miniature memory game you’ll need to gather a few basic supplies.


  1. – Mod Podge
  2. – foam brush
  3. – 14- one inch wood discs.
  4. – 8 different colored sheets of card stock (you can use solid colors, or patterned paper.  it’s up to you)
  5. – 3/4″ circle paper punch.
  6. – small round tin.
  7. – “miniature memory” printable (I printed this onto label paper so it would stick to the lid of the tin).

I found the wood discs at a local craft store.  The small tins were in my stash.  I bought them from Michael’s craft store a year or so ago (they are often used as candy tins for wedding favors).  If you can’t find them near you, there are plenty of resources for tins online.  A simple google search will give you hundreds of  options.  I created the “miniature memory” printable to fit onto the lid of the tin.

To begin, punch two circles from seven of your card stock pieces.  You will punch 14 circles from the remaining piece of paper (this will be the backside of the game pieces).

Next using your Mod Podge and foam brush, begin adhering the paper circles to the wood discs.  Once the paper is applied to each side of the wood discs you can start using the Mod Podge to seal over both sides of the game pieces.

Tip: you will get better results if you apply thin, even coats.  The girls + I applied three coats to each side of our game pieces.

Next use scissors or a paper punch to cut out the “miniature memory” label.

Abby and I  plan on making a bunch of these games to give as birthday gifts for her friends.  They would also make a sweet party favor, no?
