Thrifty Thursdays - Bingo Mini

 
It's Thrifty Thursday and I'm back with another mini book (I think I'm going through a phase).  This one is made out of a Bingo game I found at the Dollar Tree.

  
I didn't take photos for a tutorial but here is a quick run down on how I made it: The Bingo cards were already attached (they were perforated so you could tear them apart before you played with them). And they came in twos - one strip of green and one in red (so you could make two books out of this!)  I chose the green ones and kept them attached.  I then cut strips of patterned paper and glued them to the back side of the bingo cards (this will help keep them together).  Once the glue was dry I folded the bingo cards accordion style.  I added mats and decorated the front and there you have it!
 
  I still have to add photos - I think I might add some from my mom, sister and nephew's visit!

This is kind of like a mini accordion book but only a lot easier to make. I made an accordion book with a tutorial on my blog, much more complicated. LOVE this idea!!!
