The bundle pack will save you a lot of downloading. Plus, nearly all the mats include updated pictures! These mats are much nicer than my original read ‘n stick mats, which you can access for free on my blog.
Another bonus is that the mats and cards are color-coded. If a card gets separated from its mat, you can quickly find where it belongs.
How to assemble
1. Print the mats and cards on cardstock.
2. Laminate both the mat and cards. Cut apart the cards on the solid black lines.
