Hey guys! I've been having so much fun working on projects for Valentine's Day and this past weekend, I decided to think outside the box. Well, actually ... I was thinking ABOUT a box, lol! I made a super cute Valentine Bingo Game with matching box using Doodlebug's Lots of Love collection. Rylee and I love to play games and I can't wait to show this to her. 💗 We also made a Halloween version! See below.
I started by making a box out of black card stock. Here is a link to a video I found on YouTube for making a square box. You'll just need to enlarge the free template or SVG file so that the inside square is 8 1/2".
I loved the pretty red plaid so I covered the top of the box with it. I made a band across the middle with the Love You Bunches floral print and white card stock. I added lots of fun die cuts from the odds and ends and the Bingo title, which is Abigail alphabet stickers. Then I finished it off with a cute scalloped border sticker from the This and That. (Product links below.)
I made the 8"x8" Bingo cards by printing a grid on white paper and adding that to some pretty 12x12 pattern papers. Now for the really fun part. The stickers!
I used icon stickers from a few Doodlebug collections including Lots of Love, Love Notes and maybe a couple from the French Kiss collection. Each card has some duplicate stickers and some individual ones. They all have an X in the center for the free space. The X's are from Doodlebug's Skinny alphabet stickers.
I printed small cards that list each of the images in the squares. The cards can be shuffled and chosen at random.
For the game pieces, I punched scalloped heart shapes out of red card stock but you could use any shaped punch. Or, you could also use candy! If you're giving this as a gift, that would make it extra sweet!
This cute Bingo game was fun to make and l think my granddaughter's going to love it. And it can be made with any collection and any theme like ...
... Halloween! Here's a version I made with mini icon stickers from five different Doodlebug Halloween collections including Booville, Happy Haunting, Ghost Town, Candy Carnival and Monster Madness!!
