BINGO cards are just one of the many vintage items I collect. I pick these up wherever I see them. This Halloween banner is just my latest BINGO card project.

I never realized how many different projects I’ve done with them until I just went back through my photos and blog posts… This isn’t even half of them!
- I Love You BINGO card collage
- Christmas BINGO card ornaments
- another BINGO card collage
- another BINGO card collage – vintage children’s books
- Sweet Sisters, Naughty Sisters BINGO card collages
I also used some of the newer ones to display vintage lace and trims
There were also some Christmas notebooks/albums and some from other events and holidays that I’ll have to upload to the blog later.
Anyway… back to the Halloween banner. This was pretty simple to make.
Vintage BINGO Card Halloween Banner Tutorial
- Vintage BINGO Cards
- Black Cardstock
- Scissors OR Cricut cutting machine
- Eyelets (optional)
- Glue Stick
- Bone Folder
- 1/8″ Circle Punch OR Crop-A-Dile
- Black Ribbon or Seam Binding
- Cut letters out of black cardstock. The ones in this photo were cut out with a Cricut cutting machine but I’ve also cut them free hand.
- Apply glue to the back of the letter and stick to the BINGO card. Rub lightly with a bone folder (or just smooth down with your hand).
- Punch holes in the top corners of the cards. (Eyelets are optional but will help your banner last longer. They can be affixed with the Crop-A-Dile.)
- Run a length of ribbon or seam binding through the holes.
See how easy?!?
BTW, the Amazon links to supplies in this post are my affiliate links so I will earn a small percentage of any purchases made (helps support my blogging habit!). But I have found that Amazon is a great place to get craft supplies! Especially once you get Amazon Prime! Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial. The prices can’t be beat, you don’t have to get out in the traffic, and shipping is quick! So if I don’t have time to make it to my local craft store, or I need something they don’t carry, Amazon is it!
‘Til the next project,
