Admit One Photo Box

Admit One Ticket Box

I decided to start clearing out my junk closet... (Insert Psycho Music..EEE, EEE!)
When we moved from Austin into this house I had a number of items that I didn't know
what to do with.  So what did I do with them??  Threw them into a closet and FORGOT about it.

Here's the first item up for repurpose...
Admit One Picture Box
My husband and I bought this item many years ago at a trade days in Wimberely, TX.
Probably when we were honeymooners (ah...young love!).
I loved these boxes then... now the flowers are just falling apart.

However,  The wood finish is just perfect so I thought I would make a shadow box out of it.

I have all these tickets lying around so I thought I would start a ticket box.
There should be quite a few baseball tickets around this house but for some reason I can't find them.
I thought I would go ahead and make a baseball shadowbox and replace all
the non-baseball tickets with baseball tickets later.

The back of the box was a particle board.
I just Mod Podge'd a sheet of scrapbook paper to the board and
also put a coat on top of the paper for durability.

I made an "Admit One" ticket with my Cameo.  
You can see the tutorial in creating this ticket here.

You might wonder if we are Red Sox fans?  
Well yes, but our loyalty is with the Texas Rangers.  
I just don't generally take my camera to those games since it happens more often.  
I guess I'll have to take my camera to the next Rangers game!

  8. I have a drawer of tickets with nothing to do with them. What a great idea. I even think there might be a shadowbox or two somewhere. Thanks for the inspiration - someone may be getting a Christmas present from this post! Came over from G'day.
