Altered Tickets

I decided to get out my ticket punch that I bought a couple of years ago but had never really used. I was inspired by some YouTube videos about altering tickets and making ticket paper clips. I think it’s also a wonderful way to use up long pieces of scrap paper.

This is my Little B brand ticket punch that I purchased at Tuesday Morning eons ago. I have tons of these paper strips leftover from making junk journals.

These are the “naked” ticket strips punched from various papers.

These are some altered ticket strips with flowers, washi tape, gems and words. I can add a whole strip to a project like a junk journal, or tear off one piece to use as a smaller embellishment on a card or ATC. 

These tickets have a paper clip sandwiched between the pieces so they can clip onto projects and journal pages. I glued some tiny pieces of torn paper on each ticket before I glued them to the bottom ticket and paper clip.

These are my finished paper clips. I added stickers, stamping, flowers and words. 

Altering tickets is really fun and easy as they are tiny little substrates. If you don’t have a ticket punch you can purchase raffle tickets at the Dollar Tree and alter them. Use paints and paper to cover up the printed background. 

Make some ticket strips or ticket paper clips and use up some of your smaller craft supplies. Altered tickets are small but can make a big impact on your projects!

      I bought it at Tuesday Morning when they had it which means it’s probably not being made anymore. You can always use regular strip tickets, like you can get at Dollar Tree or the colored strips tickets you can buy on Etsy to alter. The other thing you can do is cut card stock into thin strips and then clip the corners off with the edge of a corner rounding punch or scissors. I hope that helps.
