Ticket Stub Memory Box.

I found a tutorial over at The Thinking Closet for a ticket stub memory box.

Lauren has written such a great tutorial I suggest you hop over for a look at how it is done.

I took the pics of mine prior to starting my blog so I didn't get the process recorded.

As soon as I saw the end result I knew who I wanted to make one for. Well many people came to mind but as Christmas was approaching fast I had time to make one for a friend and one for me, as I'm sure I will make more for others throughout the year.

The tools and materials were easy enough to find.

I picked up the frames at a discount store. I took Laurens advise and checked out what the frame was made from and I suspected mine was wooden.


Got it wrong.

But it was a compressed cardboard so easy enough to drill.

I had paper left over from my stars project, but I did need to borrow the use of my sisters printer as mine is old and out of action.

I made these the day before my friend (whom the second one was for) was coming over.

My frame was one of the first things she commented on when she sat down for a chat.
So imagine her thrill (and mine) to have her unwrap her own.

She said she was curious as to why I had sent her a text asking her colour preferences for picture frames and home decor.....

She loved it, and has hinted at ordering some for others birthdays as well.

The purpose of starting my blog was to give credit where credit is due,

So a big THANK YOU to The Thinking Closet for your wonderful inspiration.

I will be linked up at these fab parties:
