DIY Craft: Game Ticket Shadow Box

Gary and I go to a lot of sporting events. Which sometimes I think is really odd because he works in the sports industry. (You would think on vacation he wouldn't want anything to do with sports.) I have kept most of our tickets, and for the most part we have kept them in a zip lock bag in the closet. I didn't know what I wanted to do with these tickets until I saw this gem on Pinterest.

Sporting Events

These are a few of our favorite games. The Oklahoma game was awesome because we purchased tickets on Stubhub but while we were tailgating we found a guy who had closer tickets to our friends. So we traded him tickets and a beer for those tickets. Granted the team was playing Ball State. 

Used tickets

I got my shadow box at Michael's. Shadow boxes are kinda expensive so I waited until they went on sale. If you wait long enough you can get a good deal: I got mine during buy one get one free. Plus I had a coupon for 25% off the total purchase including sale items. I got 2 shadow boxes for $15. 

The other shadow box is for all the pocket schedules. Each game we go to I get a pocket schedule. We love seeing how every team has a different pocket schedule with promotions. 

Game Schedules

I separated all the pocket schedules by leagues. You can see we attend more MiLB and MLB games. 

These are a few of our favorite pocket schedules. The Astros was on our honeymoon to Houston. It was the Brewers vs. Astros. I loved this stadium and we also got to see a lot of the players from Oklahoma City RedHawks that got promoted. Gary loves this Yankees pocket schedule from the time that he interviewed to work with the Yankees. Unfortunately I wasn't able to go with him but he wants to take me to NY. 

Game Day Pocket Schedules

Just like the shadow box for the game tickets. When we put our favorite pocket schedules in front and then placed the rest in pattern to make them stay in place. It really doesn't matter how you put them in the box. We just wanted to showcase our favorite. 

Pinterest Schedules

We have been to enough games that the shadow boxes are full, but if you don't and just get a piece of scrapbooking paper. The paper can be glued or taped to the back of the box for some decor. 

Do you keep old tickets? What do you do with them?
