What do you think of the following Decor idea? Is it something you would do? What do you like/dislike about it?



What it is: A decorated shadow box with a slit cut in the top where you can drop tickets to events you've been to inside.

It is very creative and cute! Unfortunately I hate movies, so it wouldn't work for me, lol.

ETA: that just reminded me of when my hub and I were dating, like 10 years ago, he used to have a bulletin board on his wall that he posted our tickets on. Awwwww.

You could also do tickets to sporting events, concerts, maybe plane tickets too.

I think it is kind of neat, but not sure where I would put it or if it really even my style. I did see another similar one that they put sand from every beach they had been to in it and then labeled the beach and the year on the glass.

I like that there are Brewers and Packer tickets in it! I think it's creative! I wouldn't hang it in my living room, but I could see putting in the basement or a rec room type area. I always want to save tickets of special events/games we've been to, but I never know what to do with them.

I like it. I would probably hang it in the closet or in a bedroom/office

It's definitely cute! I might design mine a little differently, but that's about it. I keep most of my ticket stubs anyway, so this would give me a way to actually use them.

Oh, I really like that idea too. We don't go to enough beaches to fill most containers but I love the idea.

I guess it was just a vase that they used for the sand, but I am sure if you did the shadow box and sealed it up really well that it would work to hold sand too. Here is a pic of the vase with sand:
