Bingo Cards, Buttons, & a Junky Little Drawer

Bingo Button Card
I love buttons!  I have had a great button stash for a long time thanks to my mom and my grandmas.  I pinned this bingo card recently from cdiannezweig with a plan to do something like it.


I use buttons for crafting all the time...

I also use buttons in jars as decor all the time.

Sometimes I stick jars of buttons in a suitcase vignette.

I also used red buttons in a heart pan mosaic.

Back to the bingo button cards...

I found Bingo cards like these from the Decadence Emporium on Etsy.  Ten for eight dollars.

I found thin wood rectangles almost the size of the bingo cards at Michael's.  I stained them with walnut stain and brushed them with water based matte poly.

 I sewed buttons on each card.

I brushed on Mod Podge with a foam brush.

Then glued them on each wooden rectangle.  Here is my white button card.

Lag Screw Rusty Drawer www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
 Then I picked up a rusty little lag screw drawer.

 Cool, rusty, but a little too orange.

So I sanded the orange paint a lot.  Then brushed on some water based poly.  Much better!


A little rusty and fun.

I think my bingo button cards are pretty fun in the lag screw drawer.

  2. Carlene . . . the "button Bingo cards" are the cutest thing!!!! LOVE 'em! I know we are both Minnesotans and I'm thinking the long, cold winters bring out some of the greatest crafters/artisans . . . just a trip to the Minnesota State Fair show how wonderfully creative we all all winter!!!! Looking forward to your creative gardening this summer . . . Marcia

  3. I have a terrible confession - I had hundreds of old buttons and a few years ago, while my hubby was ill and before he passed, I think I lost my mind, I got rid of ALL of them for like $5 at a garage sale...Now I wish I had even a small portion of them back :( Oh well, live and learn!! Your button cards are just too cute! I love how you put them together and your display ideas are great too! Very creative - don't you just love getting ideas from Pinterest? Blessings, Cindy

  6. I love your bingo car buttons. I have one question. In the sewing vignette--did you make the container that holds the scissors? I love that! Just thought I'd make one if you had made it and you had a tutorial for it.
