Momma made...Cupcake Matching/Memory Game Tutorial


I received several inquiries about the cupcake matching/memory game I blogged about with our letter C activities so I thought I would put together a little tutorial.





The cupcake squares are soooo simple to make I almost feel silly posting a tutorial, but here goes!!


First, gather your supplies.
You'll need two pieces of felt, felt cupcake stickers, fabric glue and either needle/thread or a sewing machine.  I got the felt cupcake stickers at Michaels.  They were with the felt supplies and came in a pack of about 20, I think.  (I also HIGHLY recommend a good pair of fabric scissors for cutting felt.  This is the pair I have.)


Next, evenly space your cupcakes on your felt. 
As you can see, I was able to get 8 cupcakes per sheet of felt.  Do not remove the paper backing yet.


Then cut out your squares.
My squares are roughly 2"x2", although I didn't measure them.  I basically just left the cupcakes on the felt, tried to eyeball what looks "centered" and then cut.  After I cut my first square I used that as a pattern for all the remaining squares (as shown in the picture above).


You should have 16 squares once you are finished (if you are making 4 different pairs of cupcakes).


Next, remove the paper backing from your felt cupcake sticker, add a tiny dab of fabric glue and center your cupcake in your felt square.
(I decided to use the fabric glue because I wasn't sure how strong the sticker was.)


The only thing left to do is to sew your felt squares together.  I used my sewing machine since I only had to do straight lines (I'm awful with anything else!!), but they would be super easy to hand stitch. 



Hope you enjoy and please drop me a line if you make them for your little ones.
