I have 73 of these tickets. They're made of card and are 5.5cm by 8.5cm. Some have a hole punched in them. What shall I do with them?

hmmm. . .

-Do you have any boring, cheap tables you could decorate the tops of by using Mod Podge and these tickets?
-You could use them on ATCs.
-If the backs of them are blank you could make a notebook type thing (think paint samples). Line them all up and stick a brad in the corner.

Hmmm, this one's hard :-/

Make a trinket box out of them?

Goodness, I don't know. I'm sorry Sad

you know how people made vinyl tote bags out of manga (Japanese comics)? well, i guess you could do the same thing except with tickets. then you could add some cute sayings that have something to do with traveling... and some other stuff to spruce it up. it could be your carry on travel bag.  Smiley

when we were at uni, my boyfriend (now my hubby) covered a wall of his (very small) college room with his stash of old train tickets. He arranged them in a kind of wave pattern. It looked pretty funky.

Ooh nice idea - I may have a go seeing as I have plenty of tickets!

No old tables I'm afraid. I like the idea of the trinket box tho.

International swaps. To America, maybe?  Roll Eyes

Plus there's a Beatles swap coming up -- you've got "She's Got a Ticket to Ride" already.

Here we are! Here's the truly unique bag.



I used clear parcel tape to stick everything together and two old belts for the handles. I made a nice pattern on each side with different coloured tickets - and I still have 19 left!. Cheers for all the help and inspiration.

THIS is absolutley so much fun. I am a planning a HUGE life long dream trip to Europe next year and I now know why I will save every paper metro/train stub. You are inspirational. Thanks so much for the brilliant idea, I hope you don't mind I plan to do something similar. OUTSHINES capri sun pouches by a MILE
