Today’s Christmas in July projects were actually made about 9 years ago! Unfortunately, these are the only pictures I took before I sold them. Sorry about the tiny size! These vintage Bingo card Christmas albums are a fun project to use up a lot of your scraps. And I know y’all have scraps! If you’re like me you have boxes and boxes of fabric, ribbons, buttons, lace, etc. that’s just too pretty to throw away.

Vintage Bingo Card Christmas Albums
I’m not even going to include a supply list for this project since they can vary so much. Basically it’s just using up whatever you have. The only common “ingredients” are Bingo cards, some kind of adhesive, and ribbon to tie it together.
Each Christmas album starts with 2 matching Bingo cards with 2 holes in the left side. The inside pages were made of cardstock with tabs from scrapbook papers. I left them all blank since these were being sold. Once everything was finished I loosely tied them together with seam binding.
Bingo Card Christmas Album #1
The front cover of this Christmas album was mostly covered with a vintage Christmas fabric that I found at a thrift store. In fact, just about all the supplies for these albums were from thrift stores!
I added an old doily, velvet ribbon, mother of pearl button, and a coffee stained tag (tied, not glued). Then I made a new title tag with my label gun. I like the contrast of the more modern black tag against all the vintage pieces.
Bingo Card Christmas Album #2
This cover was embellished with vintage fringe, button, and rick rack mixed with modern papers that were aged with ink and coffee. I tied a chenille stem candy cane on it also.
Bingo Card Christmas Album #3
I love finding unique Bingo cards like this green one. It has the same new scrapbook papers and candy cane as album #2 along with more vintage buttons, lace, and red rick rack.
I really do need to make more of these. If for no other reason than to take some better photos for you! But I also still have boxes and boxes of vintage goodies to create with… hopefully you’ll see more of these in my Etsy shop this fall.
