Vintage Bingo Cards Day 2 & A Giveaway!

 

vintage-bingo-card-pocket-1This week I am highlighting Bingo cards and how they are truly a craft staple…no matter if your style is vintage, or more contemporary. Bingo cards come in such a variety of colors, fonts and sizes and are such a neutral item, that they can fit in almost ANY project you create.

Yesterday, I used a variety of vintage Bingo cards as mini canvases. They made the perfect base for a lovely display of an assortment of dimensional stickers and quotes. The sturdiness of the thick cardstock allows for lots of embellishing. It also works for making a sturdy gift pocket!

For this project, I stitched a vintage Bingo card to a piece of kraft cardstock, sewing along 3 sides only, to create a pocket. I did add glitter to the word “BINGO” to add a bit of bling, but the word still kind of fades in the background…the focal point is the paper doll from the Dimestore Vogue Paper Sheets & Tags kit, and bouquet of vintage forget-me-nots. The Bingo card itself, truly is neutral, but makes for a great pouch!

A strand of vintage sequins and fringe made from vintage dress pattern tissue trims the bottom. A pocket like this would be the perfect packaging for a birthday gift! Simply add a card, a gift card and a chocolate bar. Who wouldn’t like that?

    I have used BINGO cards on greeting cards, in altered framed art and also as the base of altered art. I would be thrilled to win these BINGO cards as I get together with a group of women about once a month and we make several different crafts according to the season or holiday. These would be a great addition for our group to use!

    I just love all your projects. The vintage items and the Bingo cards are my kind of thing. I’m going to make this card and give it to my girlfriend for her birthday. I just finished making your valentine notebooks and pennants. What great ideas!
    Thanks,
    Rosemary

    In the past, I have used BINGO cards on cards. I also purchased a set of BINGO cards that are three-ring punched and all ready to be made into an album … now to find the time to create it. I would love to win these because that will force me to use them more often – I love that look.

  4. Nancy D says:

    I love crafting with bingo cards! I’ve used them on cards and journal covers. I love how they can fit into any theme you are creating. This giveaway package looks awesome!

  5. I was so inspired by your post that I decided to use some bingo cards to go along with some Easter tags I am in the process of making right now….. in fact need to get back to my craft room to finish them up! 😉 just love the look of combining vintage treasures with new projects!

    What a great giveaway! I have used bingo cards in journals and on scrapbook pages. I love the vintage bingo cards (all though I have none, wink wink)! My birthday is Friday and I would love to win this, I am not getting older ~ I am vintage <3

    Thanks for the chance ~

  7. I love, love, love vintage bingo cards. I have used them quite often to display my vintage jewelry that I make at craft shows. I have also shrunk them down and made shrinky dinks for charm bracelets. You can alway find something to create with vintage bingo cards.

  8. LeAnne says:

    This is just lovely! Since I mostly make cards, that’s what I normally do with bingo cards…although I haven’t made one lately, I think I should remedy that! Thanks for the chance to win….even if I don’t win, I feel like a winner when I look at your lovely creations!

  9. Amber Hersh says:

    I use a bunch of the vintage style items of designed my own personal vintage style accessories for various projects. I will use them in scrapbooking all the way to home decor and in my photography. If I were to win the giveaway I would use them in my creations and the Bingo cards would be fun to use in my photographs I take of people to mark dates in the portrait. For example a due date or a save the date engagment session. I am currently working on art pieces of a vintage feel in old barn windows for home decor. These Bingo cards are FAB-tastic and would love to be able to use them and create!!! 🙂

    I have used them on Valentines before. Probably other places too. But right now, I just need a nap and can’t think straight. Maybe I will dream of wonderful uses for these cards while I sleep!

    I love everything vintage and love to craft! I have a blog called the Inquisitive Housewife where I cook and craft in a vintage style. These would be great for it. I need some inspiration. This weather has made me lazy!

  12. Michelle says:

    I adore your inspiration pieces. That fringe is so cute!
    What do I use Bingo cards for? Bingo reminds me of my dear Grandmother who played vicariously. I use the cards as whimsical photo mats. Embellishing the mats is so much fun!
