DIY: Ticket Artwork

I have been collecting ticket stubs since as long as I can remember. Whether it be a cheesy teen movie or the concert of a lifetime, I save them and cherish the memories that flood back when I look at them. For the majority of high school these ticket stubs have been tacked onto a bulletin board growing in size, number and inconvienence. However, I stumbled upon the cutest idea to store them in a fun, artistic way! Here is the original pin where I found the inspiration.

What you need:
  • Shadow box (I purchased mine at IKEA)
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Letter stickers (optional if you choose to write "Admit One" yourself)
  • Ticket stubs or memorable scraps of paper

With this project you honestly do not have to have any creative ability. You simply cut out a piece of scrap booking paper to fit the back of the box, write "Admit One" or whatever saying fits your fancy, put the ticket stubs in the front of the box and close it up. You know have a beautiful new memory holder to display on your wall or shelf.

I decided to place mine on my shelf in my dorm so my light will shine on it and if people see it, it starts a conversation. What creative ways do you display memorable ticket stubs or papers you acquire?


  1. Since I went to my first midnight premiere back in high school, I've tried to save my ticket stubs as memories of some pretty awesome nights. This looks like a cool way to make sure those memories don't accidentally get mistaken for a trash-bound receipt or otherwise useless piece of paper by an overzealous roommate!

  2. I have tons of tickets that I want to save forever, they're awesome ways to remember things. This is an awesome way to save those memories.

  3. This is a great idea. I literally have a drawer full of ticket stubs that I can't seem to get rid of, so I like that I now have a cuter way to display them.
