Bunco Night Table Decorations

I hosted Bunco last night. These are the table decorations I made with Cricut, SCAL & Vinyl.

Align CenterI made the Bunco dice in Inkscape. Click HERE for my free file.

I cut vinyl circles and attached them to the plates to resemble dice.

More vinyl dice on the mugs.

My Bunco group is called the Hot Bunco Babes.

I added a bit of the Bunco Spirit in the bathroom...
