Bingo Card Book

It started with a simple, everyday Bingo Card. Slightly used, definitely loved.

A few embellishments--yellow ribbon, and Bingo markers

A little sewing along the way (Coptic Stitch) with matching yellow linen waxed thread.

The Coptic Stitch allows the book to open flat. The Bingo pieces prevent the cover from resting directly on a surface when opened flat.

The large and narrow pages that have been rounded are best suited for an artist who thinks and works outside the box. The paper is thick, cold pressed watercolor paper.

This project was made for a great artist by the name of Janet Hofacker. Google her name to see samples of her work. Her etsy store is found at Check her site often.

That looks great! I didn't know bingo cards were that big.

I had never seen this size Bingo card either. I was expecting the little gree square ones with the red sliding windows.

Quite the challenge but definitely fun.
