Several months ago, when my obsession with Pinterest first began, I found a Shadow Box to display ticket stubs. I thought this was a really neat idea, especially since I keep all my tickets and they end up in a
dusty pile on my bookshelf. The only pin I could find on Pinterest left no direction or link. It was just a photo.
I pinned it anyways because I knew it would be an awesome way to display ticket stubs from movies or other events that Alex and I go to. Plus it will be a neat keepsake to look back on some day!
During a recent outing to the local craft store I picked up the supplies I thought would be needed for this project. Yesterday was a rainy day in Florida because of Tropical Storm Beryl and it gave me the perfect opportunity to get crafty!
One disclaimer though. I dove right into the project so I failed to take step by step photos. However, it’s fairly simple and I have a lot of confidence in your crafting abilities! 🙂
Here is what you need:
- A shadow box (I got an 8×10)
- Construction paper or decorative craft paper
- Dremel with drill bit or small saw to cut slit in top
- Glue (Double sided tape would work also)
- Sandpaper (optional)
- And all your ticket stubs!
Here is what you do:
- Unpacked my shadow box and took the cardboard backing off.
- Cut decorative craft paper down to size using the previously removed cardboard and scissors.
- Glue the craft paper onto the cardboard side that would be facing into my shadow box.
- Prepare a work space to cut the slit in your box and mark off how big as a guide. My slit is about 5 inches long.
- Use the dremel to drill a hole through the wood until it came out clean on the other side.
- Slowly moving across the top of the box I guided the dremel to create my slit. (This was a bit challenging)
- At this point I used the sand paper just to smooth the wood on the inside where I created my slit.
- Put the shadow box back together with your cardboard backing.
- Insert tickets into box and let them fall as they may!
