Heh, I recognised the tickets as soon as I saw the little thumbnail Smiley I was just thinking about doing something with all mine the other day, but I threw them out instead Smiley

You could use them to decoupage... something... but a little altered book would work well. I guess you'd need to cover the backs, or you could run some writing along the magnetic strip?

im currently collecting charlie tickets (Boston's semi-user-friendly transit system) to make a lampshade out of. i dont know how thin the cards are, but if they are a bit translucent, it could make a nice shade. i know that some ppl have done the same thing with old negatives and such...

I really want to do that with some translucent plastic and make a lamp.  It reminds me of the IQ light, but with simpler pieces.

ooh loads of inspiration so far, thank you loads   Cheesy

I think so far my favourite idea is the pack of cards, I love the idea of making them into something I can use and then put away to store. The back isn't plain but I'm sure I could cover it with card to add the card numbers and shapes. And as each back will be different someone with more patience and attention to detail than myself would be able to cheat and remember what card was what, but I might take the risk!

You could laminate them in large sheets and use them as wallpaper,like this person did, only you wouldn't have to cut them. Smiley
