Vintage DIY Holiday Cards? Bingo!
How I have missed enjoying the holiday spirit with you! Although my blogging hiatus officially ends at the close of 2008, I wanted to share with you this week a few last-minute, vintage-inspired ideas for your holiday celebrations. Stay tuned for additional posts on quick-and-easy Scandinavian and vintage inspired centerpieces, mantle decor, and wrapping ideas.
The entire theme for my holiday decor this year has been “au natural” meets Scandinavian lore. I was inspired to incorporate the same theme with my greeting cards, using vintage Bingo cards adorned with glittered snowflakes, which were cut from Trader Joes’ charming brown paper bags from this season. Inside each card, I glued a strip borrowed from the same fantastically useful brown bags, each typed on my vintage Royal typewriter with its own custom message. A bow of jute finishes the interior of these cards…bingo!
I would love to hear about the holiday greeting cards you made this year and your inspirations!
