Turning your Concert Tickets into Wall Art
Well, not really art… but a pretty nice display.
Does anyone else have this collection? Little pieces of paper that prove that those fond memories were real. And fun! Who would have known that these cherished pieces are now ANTIQUES! We hardly see these stubs anymore, they have been replaced with boring pieces of printer paper only to be thrown away at the end of the night. At least for concerts anyway. So sad! So…when I opened up the bag that was housing all of these relics, I knew they were going to find a new home so that they could be admired like the cherished beauties they are.
These are some of my favorites.
Good ‘ol 1996 and the HORDE Festival. This was the first music festival I attended, and look at that lineup. The festival was originated by Blues Traveler and ran from 1992- 1998. Word has it that there is reunion festival happening this summer (Insert happy dance).
Car racing is not really my thing but this race was in Austin, Texas and I really wanted to visit this city. It was a really fun day of walking around and seeing the sights. My boys had a blast, I think they were amazed as much as me at the actual speed of these cars. You don’t really get it until it is right in front of you and they zoom by.
A Phish concert is always a good time but the special thing about this one was that it was totally FREE! My sons both had friends in town and we thought we would go hang out outside the amphitheater. We were walking to the venue when a lady came from the opposite direction and said “free tickets”. She gave us 6! Amazing, right! We had a great time and enjoyed the show from the bleachers, where it was more (ahem) kid- friendly.
My husband went to Notre Dame and this was the first time all four of us attended a home game together. We got to see all the sights from the bookstore to the building where he lived, to the Grotto. And ND ended up spanking Michigan, which was a great end to our day.
This is a special one! When my husband and I started dating, we went to New York City for a trip and a friend of ours got us tickets to Saturday Night Live. A-MAZ-ING! To be able to see all that happens behind the scenes was so cool. It was such a great experience.
So, here it is. All put together. Thanks for letting me share my project with you. Do you have a collection you can display? Let me know about it in the comments.
