Admit One: What to do with Ticket Stubs

I have this bad habit of collecting ticket stubs. It's a part of what makes my life up... the things I attend that is... I could throw them away but I don't like to. I look back at them and often remember what happened.

A few years ago I was hot and heavy into the scrapbooking, but lately, not so much. I just don't have time which really makes me sad, but I just don't. Really this blog has become my "scrapbook" of sorts because at least it gives me a way to look back and remember things.

So a few months ago I ran across a blog where they used a shadow box and created a storage place for their tickets. Ding Ding Ding! There's the answer I've been looking for!! Now I don't just have these tickets laying around but I have a place to go with them so off to the craft store I headed.

What you'll need: A Shadow box (I went with an 8x8), Scrapbook paper, Letters, Ticket Stubs, optional: pencil & ruler.

My letters measured about 1 1/4" long so I measured down 1 1/2" from the top and drew a very faint line so I had a place to put my letters and they'd hopefully be straight....

Then start sticking the letters to the paper.

Have your husband make a slit at the top so you don't constantly have to take the back off to add more tickets and boda bing boda boom, you're finished.

How sweet is this? It's a great place to drop ticket stubs in from life :). And if I run out, well I can buy a bigger shadow box or better yet, just make a second one :).

  1. That is a really cute idea, I might have to do that too! I have quite the array of ticket stubs lingering around in drawers and boxes.

  2. I am so behind in my Mixbook scrapbooking. I print a book every year, and here it is Feb and I'm not even close to finishing 2014s yet. I love this shadow box idea!

  3. That's a really cute idea! I have to say, I'm terrible with memorabilia....but if you can make something like that and work it into your decor that's really faboo!

  7. Very cool idea! It's kind of like a time capsule, eh?

    I used to collect ticket stubs, too, when I went to the movies more before having a baby.
