BINGO CHIP TIPS & PHOTO INSPIRATION:
Bingo Chip Magnets
Supplies Used: Bingo Chips, E6000 Glue, Neodymium Magnets
Bingo chip magnets are great for refrigerators and message boards, a fun gift for Bingo lovers!
Bingo Chips & Alcohol Inks
Supplies Used: Bingo Chips and Alcohol Inks, 1" Premium Epoxy Dots
TIPS: Use alcohol inks to color or antique your bingo chips. Just drip the ink onto the surface using the tip that comes on the inks. You might want to wear rubber gloves unless you like your fingertips to have that "artsy" look for the day :0)
Bingo chips are a natural wood product and the grain of the wood will vary from piece to piece. Every now and then I came across a chip that I wanted to touch up the black area with my black Sharpie. I also added the black lines on the #6 chip in the pic with it. Lots of fun!
Bingo Chip Necklaces
Supplies Used: Bingo Chips, E6000 Glue, 3D Crystal Lacquer, Jewelry Charms, Split Rings, Eye Hooks, Epoxy Dots, Flattened Bottle Caps, Ball Chains, Alchohol Inks
Flattened Cap Pendant + Bingo Chip + Alcohol Ink + Glitter + E6000
Bingo Chip + Eye Hook + Alcohol Ink + Paper Word Cut Outs + 3D Crystal Lacquer + Jewelry Charms
I was able to screw in the eye hooks with my fingers without predrilling, however sometimes the Bingo chip will crack if you don't predrill because of the variations in wood grain. If you'd like to play it safe, drill a hole with a 1/32" drill bit before screwing in the eye hook. If you're going to go for it without predrilling I recommend doing so BEFORE adding alcohol ink or 3D Crystal Lacquer or any other treatment to the Bingo chip.
Screw the eye hook into the Bingo chip, glue the Bingo chip to the flattened cap, then add the split ring to the eye hook. Its makes a nice polished look. Add a design to the backside for a two sided necklace.

Creative Space! Customize the back of your Bingo chip.
When using 3D Crystal Lacquer to seal your design its safest to use laser printed or copied images and/or magazine cutouts. Sometimes inkjet printed images blur out.
