Crafts ‘n things: The Newest (And Best) Blog For Fun And Easy Crafts

Welcome! To the first Crafts ’n things Blog post! I am honored to be the first team member to share a post with you. My name is Gloria Stengel and I come to you from sunny southern California. I have been paper crafting for 22 years and have seen crafts and craft trends come and go, and come back again. I am excited to share projects and tips with you twice a month.

The new Crafts ’n things Blog Team hopes to bring you the latest news and the best tips and techniques; we will share the fun of crafting with you as we share projects, product reviews, and even peeks into our creative spaces.

I want to share a cute Halloween card that I made for the Crafts ’n things 30-minute cards section.

I purchase the pre-made mini bingo cards in every theme and style I can find. I also have a number of bingo-themed stamps. You just cannot have too many bingo cards!

Add a few buttons, some die cut shapes, a bit of trim, and you have a cute (and not very spooky) Halloween card!

And don’t forget to decorate the inside of your cards. I like to line my cards with a light-colored paper or cardstock, stamp a sentiment, and maybe put a small strip of printed paper at the bottom.

For instructions on making the Halloween Bingo card and a complete supply list, visit the 30-Minute Cards section.
