Did you notice those cool wood bingo chips by Crate Paper in the add-on kit? No...you don't remember? I know, there's so much to see and take in. Well, here's a picture to refresh your memory...
|There they are on the right!|
Here is my counterfeit version
Let me show you how you can make them! Let's gather some supplies.
Be sure to grab your heat gun, too!
You will want to punch out circles using a 1 inch punch. I used a cream cardstock to resemble the light wood of the original.
I outlined the circle using a red marker. Perhaps an unnecessary step, but I found it made a deeper red outline once I embossed.
Using an embossing pen, I again outlined over my red marker. I even dipped my pen in a pool of extra clear embossing ink to achieve a thick red rim around my chip.
Sprinkle red embossing powder.
Shake off excess and use a paint brush to remove any remaining.
I used my piercer to hold the circle in place while I heat set.
Use number rubber stamps to add the significant numbers in your life.
Punch another circle and add pop dots. Add your embossed number to the top.
And there you have it! A knock-off version of Crate Paper's Bingo Chips.
Here are some examples of them in use:
The "69" chip was perfectly crafted to designate the year of my hubby's VW Bug. Not certain I would have found that in the pack.
Go ahead and give them a try yourself and add them to your next layout!
