Bingo...

I bought a binder full of plastic pockets at a thrift store for .50¢. You know the kind, four slots per page. Immediately I knew what I wanted to do with them.... cut them apart of course.With a paper cutter, I cut them in half and cut the side strip off. Next, I carefully cut down the sealed divider between each pocket with scissors. After all of that, I was left with fabulous thick plastic pouches. I went through my huge stash of vintage bingo cards to use inside each newly created "bag"... I inserted the bingo cards into each pouch and they become a perfect container to hold my spoon necklaces that I make. Makes them easier to transport too...This set... and this set are all being shipped to Texas.... At a later date, I would like to add some kinda topper that I can staple shut. That is going to have to take some thought, as there isn't a lot of plastic to grab onto without covering up the word "bingo" Alas, that is going to have to wait for another day... I see something glittery across the room and its calling my name. *wink*

This is a fantastic idea! I am trying to get my mind around setting up at an outdoor market. In my head I'm aiming for next spring. Therefore; ideas on displaying are buzzing through my head and I'm making mental notes every time I see a fresh idea. Thank you for sharing this.

Also, it is always fun getting a visit from a new blogging sister, and I was delighted to read the comment you left on my blog. I am happy that you like my old galvanized bucket. The best thing about it is that my husband is not ruining my dishtowels now.

I am your newest follower, and I would be tickled pink if you came back and hit my follow button, too.
Have a wonderful week, Connie
