Bingo Christmas Countdown

So last Saturday I was excited to check my Google Reader and see that it was time for another Control Freaks blog tour. All of the ladies in this group are fabulous papercrafters an never fail to amaze. This month as I was strolling along I came to Connie Babbert's blog called Inkspired Treasures and what a treasure I found!! When I saw this idea I couldn't wait to case it. So, so, so cute!

As you can see I decided to change it up a bit. I used all the same paper (still from the Candy Cane DSP pack) and I chose to punch the images with the 1 inch round punch, then add a ribbon tab on the back to make it easier to pull them out. I also strung them onto twine instead of ribbon.

Then I decided to really take it a step further and use the coordinating Bingo Card background stamp and actually create bingo cards for each member of the family!! So now each morning we will pull out a circle and then mark it off on our cards just like playing bingo! Each time we get a bingo we get a little prize. Most likely a candy.

Something you may not know about me is that I used to be a bingo caller. So this project was right up my alley. I had a ton of fun making it. If you would like to make one of your own feel free to visit my Stampin' Up! store to find everything you need.
