This 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?
