I got concert tickets to see Taylor Swift for my husband's birthday (yup, he's a fan of T-Swizzle). So I thought it'd be cool to personalize them to present as a gift.
I wanted to keep the design very simple and easy to print on a regular home printer. I did about 2 days worth of research on how to design tickets in general. I looked at airline tickets, concert tickets, conference tickets - whatever appealed to me. Then I printed, cut and paste the design onto cardboard. Sometimes my inner child just wants to get crafty. Hand-crafted for real (minus the printing).
