B-I-N-G-O cards

We have plans of playing a little Bingo at this year's Valentine's Party.
But, not just any Bingo...Family Bingo. With the faces of some of the cutest kids we know. ;)

If you'd like to make your own personalized Bingo cards...
  • Download the PNG file HERE
  • In your photo editing software, open a new 8x10 document
  • Open the new PNG file (BINGO card)
  • Open the pictures you want to use 
  • Crop each picture into a square and then drag the photo onto your new file
  • Place your photos on the layer beneath the Bingo card (note: I tried to make sure each row down did not have the same kid twice)
  • Make a few different variations of your Bingo card so no one has the exact same one (note: you won't have to move every picture every time)
  • Pass out M&M's or Hershey Kisses to use as your markers
If this is not something you'd like to attempt or my instructions are just way too confusing... ;)
  • Download a blank Bingo card HERE
  • Print out the card as an 8x10
  • Cut + adhere photos onto each of the squares
  • You could also just tape the photos onto the squares, make a photo copy and then rearrange the photos for the next card

  15. LOVE This! I'm making it today!
    Can you help me w/ a quick way to crop. I'm on a mac and have the latest version of PSE (9 I think?) and CS5. I usually like to do stuff like this in PSE if possible. I just spend a lot of time dragging the corner down over and over again till it's the size I want and there just has to be an easier way. THANKS!
