Did you use to play Guess Who? In this DIY step-by-step we show you how to make a personalised edition of this famous party game with the faces of your family, friends or work colleagues. Guaranteed to get people smiling!
  1. Step 1: Draw two squares measuring 40 x 40 cm on one of the plywood sheets and cut them out with a jigsaw. Saw another section measuring 1 x 80 cm from the original plywood sheet and saw it in half and half again. You now have 4 sections measuring 1 x 20 cm. Gently sand all pieces.
  2. Step 2: Print each photo three times on stiff paper (60 x 50 mm). The third photo will be placed in the bag. It’s a good idea to create a template in a computer application to ensure all your prints are 60 mm x 50 mm. If you know your way around Photoshop, you could isolate all the faces. This looks really good.
  3. Step 3: Now saw the rectangles from the second plywood sheet. You need 40 rectangles measuring 50 x 60 mm. Gently sand them to remove any splinters. Apply a coat of enamel paint in your chosen colour.
  4. Step 4: When the paint has dried, glue the photos onto the rectangles.
  5. Step 5: Attach the hinges with fast-working glue on the photo side.
  6. Step 6: Make four rows, each five photos wide, leaving some space at the front for the groove where the cards can be placed after they have been drawn.
  7. Step 7: Now attach the hinges to the lower board one by one. The wood is thick enough to ensure that photos remain upright rather than falling over.
  8. Step 8: Now attach the extra sections of wood to the front with fast-working glue to make the groove mentioned in step 6.
  9. Tip

    Keep the 20 loose cards in a bag or a box to keep them safe.
