We have a fun original shower game for you today from none other than the Martha! This adorable "I knew you when" shower game will get all of your guests chatting and remembering great times you had together, all while making new memories together!
Each guest sticks a flag into the year she met the honoree.
Save our clip art on a disk. Have it printed on oversize paper and mounted to foam board at a print shop. Cut flags from origami or scrapbooking paper; punch two holes and thread a corsage pin through. Stick into a fabric-wrapped foam board on a tray. Pins, by Lomey, from michaelsfloralsupply.com.
Game Board How-To
1. Download the PDF onto a disk or thumb drive, and take it to a print or copy shop that can print on oversize paper. (You will need 17-by-46-inch paper in order to print out the full-size timeline.)
2. The timeline is designed to encompass a wide range of years; some of them won't be useful for you. Work with the copy shop to cut off the sections that contain years that aren't applicable (those before the oldest of you was born and those years that are after your event).
3. Have the copy shop mount the cropped timeline on foam board.
4. To attach it to the wall, hang it like a picture: Lay a string across the top half of the board on the back side, and tape it securely at the ends with duct tape or wide packing tape. Then work with your venue to hang a removable self-adhesive picture hook on the wall, and loop the string across it.
Use a paper trimmer or a craft knife and metal straightedge to cut 1/2-inch-wide strips of scrapbooking or other paper (those with a design on one side and a solid color on the other are best). Cut the strips into 3-inch lengths, and notch one end of each. Use a small Japanese hole punch to make two holes, one above the other, in the other ends; you will thread a corsage pin through those two holes. Curl the paper between your fingers to shape it into a flag, and then insert the pin.
