Craft #1 for 2012

PhotobucketI came across some bingo cards and I decided to make a book for my first craft of 2012. I tried two different bindings. One with a machine and the other just a punch and rings. The inside of the books are blank pages repurposed from a stack of old letter heads. I just chopped off the address and cut to size. I rounded the corners of the paper since the bingo cards are rounded. I am perfecting the book and then I am going to give some of these away for presents.

I bound this Bingo book using a wire binding machince I bought used. I have been wanting to try it out for a long time.

Bingo Book # 1 with wire binding with blank pages inside. I put an orange sheet on the front page.

This Bingo Book #2 was made without anything but a few punches. I used the cropadile tool to punch through the bingo card and the recycled paper.  I "bound" it with small binder clips. This makes it easy to remove the pages and add more pages as needed as well.

  1. I really like the bingo books! They would be great as sketch books.
