Today I took a break from nail designs (that's a lie, I just painted them a single color) and decided to do a DIY project that is actually simple. I've been collecting movie ticket stubs since middle school (a few have gotten lost along the way) and I kinda got tired of storing them in a little tin hidden from the world. This pin suggested making a shadow box for them all. Brilliant!
1. I found a suitable frame on Amazon for $20. I think this one was meant to be used as a deep frame where the frame is really thick and the picture is a couple inches in. But since I am oh-so-clever, I took it apart and switched the centerpiece around so that the interior of the frame became a couple inches thick.
2. Now I needed a background. I thought about drawing one myself or something, but decided to go with something a little more professional. I got an 8 x 10 poster from All Posters.com.
3. Finally I threw it all together and added in my tickets!! I have waaaaaaaay too many, so I only put in a few so that you could see the background.
I added the rest...
It's kinda cool, because you can just shake up the box and see different ones!
Maybe now I'll be inspired to try something a little harder next time!
