I love Summer decorating especially for the 4th of July. July also reminds me of carnivals, sno-cones, fireworks, kiddie rides, and game booths. When I saw these tickets at the dollar store I knew I wanted to use them in my July decorating and make a tickets American flag.
I used an 8″x10″ frame because that’s what I had. If I were going to buy one I’d probably get a bigger one for bigger impact. I cut a piece of white cardstock to 8″x10″ to fit inside the frame. Then I used it as a guide for my tickets. I layed out my flag design then adhered it to the cardstock with double sided tape.
Once it was complete I placed it in the white frame. And there you have it.
I love how it turned out. It was just what I had in mind. I still have a ton of tickets so I need to think of another fun project to use them on.
Have you started crafting or decorating for the 4th of July?
so cute! i love the things that can be found at the dollar store. very creative!!
this is bsolutely adorable! I think I need to make a trip to our dollar store and see if they have some of those tickets!
LOVE it! Adorable and great idea from the Dollar store.
How cool is this?! I would have never thought of that. I LOVE this idea. I’m with you…I’m a big fan of the 4th. PS I hope things are smoothing out with your family. I’ve been thinking of you.
What a fun idea! I might have to swing by our dollar store to see if I can score some of those tickets too.
This is so clever. I love how it looks. I should probably get out my fourth of July decor, but since we also have the 24th I’m not usually in a hurry in June since I keep it up all July.
p.s. did you get my text about Ashlee’s shindig?
This is genius! What a neat idea. It looks so cute. The leftovers would be fun to play with, too. (Bunting? Drink tags? hmm….)
I love it when you can take an every day ordinary thing and turn it into something extraordinary. 🙂
I love this Leanne!! 🙂 Hope all is well with you and things are getting back on track! 🙂
I so love this idea! Thanks for sharing!
What a clever idea! I am going to have to look for some tickets now!
wow, great idea!
What a very clever idea!! I have a TON of these and this would make cute gifts too!!
I love, love, love this, Leanne! What an AWESOME use for those tickets. And what is it about tickets, anyway? I kind of adore them….only I can’t explain why. Anyway, this is fab. And I’m going to be sharing it on my FB page today. Hope that’s okay. 🙂
This is adorable and a creative use for tickets!
I’ve been loving all your crafts you’ve come up with lately–they are so simple and beautiful! Also I’ve been travelling the last week or so so I missed the news about your daughter and family crisis–it sounds scary! Hopefully everything is going okay now, email me if you need to talk about it! Also I will be in Utah soon so I’d love to see you if that would be possible. 🙂 Miss you!
LOVE this!! What a fun idea! I am always thinking I should buy some of these tickets for something….now I know just what to do with them, thanks so much for sharing!
omgosh! I LOVE this! I have to make this now! So cute, thanks for sharing!!
What a clever idea! I’ll bet that you’ll receive many compliments on this from guests.
This is such a sweet idea! The tickets look fantastic both up close and also far away- great job. Found you from CSI:)
That is such a great idea! I wanted to do something similar with some paint chips, but it didn’t turn out like I wanted. I may have to look for some tickets instead:)
