Ticket Shadow Box

Ticket shadow box 8I don’t know about you, but I have always made scrapbooks and hung onto memorabilia.  I love looking back at pictures and reminders of all of the good times. At the same time, I have to have organization for all of that stuff. I won a shadow box at PoKeeno  and thought that it would make a perfect ticket shadow box!  You know for all of your movie tickets, programs, and playbills.

This is the shadow box that I won. The idea was that I would hang it in the game room right outside of the media room doors.  Kinda like giving your tickets to the usher before entering the movies.

I loved the burlap, but the teal color didn’t match the game room. A coat of black paint was a quick fix. Even though this shadow box lid was on hinges and swung open, I decided a slit cut in the top side of the box would be killer awesome so that the tickets could easily fall in.

Next I created a “ticket” sign on PicMonkey. I love PicMonkey…if you haven’t been there, go! Go now! You won’t regret it. I promise.

Once all of the decorating was done, my ticket shadow box was ready to hang.

I hate when there are two or more hangers on the back of art. I mean I really, really hate it! I finally found an easy way to get art hung when it has two hangers. Cut a piece of blue tape the distance between the two holes on the back.

After figuring out how high you want to hang your art, I use a level to help me place the tape on the wall.

Yikes! Sorry this pic is blurry…to show you how I used the level, I marked the wall with white pencil before applying the tape. At the ends of the tape, put in your nails.

This truly was an easy project. I love that it not only qualifies as art and helps keep me organized, but also that it gives me that warm fuzzy feeling overtime I look at all the fun times and places we have been!

Until next time….
