One of my all time most favorite movies is without a doubt The Polar Express. This project is, of course, inspired from that very movie. Wanting to keep the magic alive for as long as possible, I created these tickets and gave them to my children.
After a little search on the wonderful world wide web, I found a beautiful printable ticket. I printed it out on photo paper. Then on one side of the front and back, using a ¾" circle punch to add in a notch. The reason I only did one was to make it easier to line the front and back together.
Using my Xyron Creative Station, I put permanent adhesive on the front and the back copies of the
ticket. Then using the notches, I lined up the front and the back together.
Using a pair of scissors I trimmed up the edges and notched the other side of the ticket using the ¾" circle punch.
Then with the crop-a-dile, I punched out the word "BELIEVE" using the ⅛" hole punch. To make sure that I was able to maintain the integrity of the holes, I printed out another ticket that had believe punched out of it. Then printed it up and used a clip to hold the template together with the tickets. Fortunately, I was able to do many tickets at once because I am not the conductor and it took A LOT longer to punch out.
As always, I've learned ways that could possibly give it a more completed look (according to me) and possibly make it a little easier for me. A cute little project that will hopefully provide a little magic for a few years.
Thanks for looking!!
