Making your own memory card came- instructions

This is an easy homemade gift idea that can serve as an inexpensive last minute gift. It is part of the gift basket for the forgetful.


Ingredients: picture files of family and friends, color printer + paper, scissors, glue, laminating machine (optional).



  • Find at least 10 pictures of family members and friends to include in your memory game (the more the better).


  • Open the first picture on your PC--> right click it --> click copy.

  • Go to the table (step 1) --> right click the first cell on the left --> click paste --> adjust picture size if needed (To resize: click on a picture--> hover over one of its corners--> your cursor changes to a double pointing arrow--> click the corner and drag it towards picture center).

  • Repeat steps 3-4 with the other pictures, each time pasting them in the next available empty cell (if you run out of table lines, simply place your cursor in the last right cell and hit TAB. This will automatically create another table line. Repeat this step as many times as needed).

  • Print 2 copies of each page on a regular paper or a slightly thicker one if you have it. Laminate the printed paper for better durability. If you don't have access to a laminating machine, glue the backside of the paper onto a piece of cardboard (empty cereal box or similar).


  • Cut the pictures into one size cards.

Homemade Runner's ID tag

This runner's ID tag is part of the runner gift basket, the cyclist gift basket and the "sports kit" kit gift basket.

It is very easy to make and can be a life savior for anyone who works out outdoors in case of emergency. It is used by simply threading it onto shoe lace. If your recipient always carries a pouch with him while training, he/she can place it there too.

ID tag making instructions:

  • Print out one of these two templates and fill it in or prepare a custom made tag yourself including all essential info about your recipient (name, phone, emergency contact, address, blood type, allergies, prescriptions, any special medical condition such as diabetes etc.).
  • Glue the printed paper onto a piece of cardboard to make it more durable.
  • Laminate it (if you don't have a laminate machine, you can usually find one at copy / print stores / office depot etc).
  • Cut to shape. Make sure you round the edges to prevent injuries and torn socks...
  • Make a hole at the top of the tag using a puncher.
  • Thread a string / rope though the hole.
