Jaylene loves board games. She loves playing them, she loves collecting them and she loves making her own. Recently she acquired a bunch of Doraemon themed ones that weren’t actually boards, but instead were folded papers with 3D playing pieces. The boxes were mismatched sizes and the papers wouldn’t lie flat after they were unfolded. I grabbed some 12×12 sheets of cardstock and used clear packing tape to adhere them to the cardstock. Now they lay flat and are easily stored in a folder. Each sheet is numbered and the pieces are in a bag that has the corresponding number on it. The bags are stored in a shoebox sized container next to the “boards”. The games stay organized, the playing pieces don’t get lost and the papers are easy to play on.
