i liberated some old scrapbooked ticket stubs and created some bookmarks. i love how they turned out and use them all the time. putting them to a practical use inspires more recollections than when they were tucked away in photo albums and scrapbooks.



instructions:
ticket stubs
paper or cardstock
tape
laminating machine (or a car to drive to the nearest kinko's)

i measured two ticket stubs and cut a piece of paper to serve as a backing. i suggest not skipping this step as many tickets are heat-sensitive and turn dark in the laminating machine. having a piece of paper (or cardstock if you want a thicker bookmark) seems to minimize this. using double-stick tape, i secured the stubs on the backing. i made my bookmarks double-sided (four stubs per bookmark) as i had so many tickets saved. but you might want to have a decorative paper backing or some event photos or memories written down. i took the finished bookmarks to kinko's to laminate and cut them out leaving a protective border around each ticket collage to seal out moisture.

that is a risk, but that's why i made sure to include a piece of paper between them. that seemed to minimize any darkness (as you can see from the pics).

Another way to save the heat problem would be to use mac-tac instead of a laminator.  It's these sticky clear sheets; you just cut to size, peel off the backing, and put on both sides.  A do-it-at-home and cheap (I can get metre long rolls of 45 cm wide for a buck at my local dollar store) alternate to laminating.

Very clever and I love you take on what constitutes memories and how to make them last - I like the idea of writing on the back or putting a photo on the back.

Be careful doing this because I tried and all the printing faded off my tickets. Now only I can tell that that piece of paper used to be my Fellowship ticket!!!

I have decided that the hokey pokey is what it's all about.

I suppose if you are really concerned about preserving your ticket stubs - what about stiching clear vinyl around them? Stick some card stock behind the stubs to give it stiffness. Or maybe sew them into sheet protectors? Or old overhead transparancies? That last one could be fun because you could print on the transparancy. Or you could just glue the stub to paper or cardstock and just make them that way...

Anyway, even though a few stubbs turned gray due to lamination (it was only one or two!) I still like having them in the pages of my latest read rather than squirelled away in a scrapbook or photo album I hardly ever take out. Of course, I'm not a scrapbooker-type and don't created wonderful pages of art with my photos and memories...
