Hello my crafty friend, how are you today? I hope all is well with you and yours! Today I thought I'd share a project that I did for a girl a couple yrs ago now. She was getting married and asked my sister if we could make 500 tickets that say thanks or thank you on them for the guests at the wedding. My sister called me and we set to coming up with something for her. She said they wanted to give each guest two tickets for drinks on them at the reception. We made several different ones and then decided on which one we felt looked the nicest and was easiest to read. My sister figured I could make 500 and pair them up by tying two together with a brown or green ribbon. We tried several different ones tied together and they didn't sit right, they seemed to bulky to me. And not easy to rip off of the ribbon one at a time.
We decided on this style and as I was making them I was thinking oh my lord, this is gonna take forever. After I made about 200 of them I thought heyyyy, why don't I perforate the tickets in half to make one ticket equal two. So that's what I ended up doing. The bride and groom loved the tickets and the idea of the perforation.
When I was done making all 250 tickets, I wanted to present them in a nice way to them, not just hand them a couple stacks of tickets in a shopping bag. I had this dollar store box hanging around and it was the right colour so I put the tickets in and they filled the box perfectly. So I made a fancy cover to glue to the lid, cut out a flower pot on the cricut and the flowers I needed to make the paper roses.http://susanbluerobot.blogspot.com/2008/09/how-to-make-paper-roses.html
