Fancy Bingo Dabber Tutorial



They're decked out in shimmery dresses,
fancy pinstripe suits, 
sparkling bow ties,
and dripping with jewels.

And... they're ready to get their ink on!



They're real party animals!
They'll make any shindig fun.

We're rolling out the Red Carpet...



for the Fancy Bingo Dabber Tutorial.

Here's how to make your own fancy Bingo Dabbers:






Make glamorous bingo chips by following 



Purchase a dowel rod the diameter of your chips 
{mine was 3/4"} and cut it into several pieces. 
Make every other cut at an angle, and 
every other cut straight. 
\    |    \    |    \




You'll have an angled side on which to glue 
your glitzy Bingo chip, and a flat side 
for adhering an inking pad. Use a felt or cork 
furniture pad for ease!




 Then just pick out some fancy papers 
to glue and wrap around the dowels. 
Add stick-on jewels 
to bling up your party dabbers.




Get some cute little squares of dye ink and 
now you're ready for a glamorous Bingo party.

Where you might want to serve these


These fancy dabbers would make any
shower, birthday, or holiday a sparkly blast
with a customized Bingo game!

That's so cool! My mom used to play bingo- I was thinking about glamming up a dobber and tying an invitation for her birthday. I secretly like to play too.
