Make Your Own Custom Bingo Cards!

I just love those cute little Bingo cards by Jenni Bowlin, but I don't have any. So I decided to make my own. I scanned a card, from one of those home edition Bingo games, then printed it out onto a piece of cardstock. (before I scanned it, I cut off the top where it had said BINGO) I then stamped the word Star and the little star in the center and then cut the entire card out. Now, you can instantly make your own Bingo cards with whatever word you would like! As long as it is 5 letters or less!!

So I decided that I wanted to make a little wall hanging with an old wooden frame that I had forever. So I distressed it a little bit and then added some goodies! I first cut a piece of patterned paper (My Mind's Eye,29th Street Market) to fit the inside of the frame. I then added the bingo card, photo of my son, some Inque Boutique stamps, felt heart and chipboard scroll as well as a button, crystals, sheer ribbon and some more chipboard stars. For the scroll and stars, I dabbed the pieces with my glue pad(Palette) then added some blue glitter EP (Ranger) and heat embossed with my heat gun. They look so pretty and shimmery!

To hang it, I strung some pearls on a piece of strong hemp cord and then attached onto back of frame with my glue gun.

I hope you like the finished frame. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!
Hugs, Melissa
