Supplies & Tools

Last summer, I took my god-daughter Nina to the Zoo. I saved our tickets as keepsakes and, as they fell into my hand last week, decided to make fun and useful mementos from them. One for me and one for my little girl. Nina loves purple, so I think you can guess which one is hers 😉

Here is a list of the tools I’ve used:

You’ll probably have one or the other already at home.

These supplies were used in my two designs:

Tip for beginner crafters:
It’s always good to have basic craft supplies at home. This way you or your kiddos can start creating whenever you feel like it. You buy a couple supplies and literally can craft a thousand things from them. Just use your imagination or find great inspiration here on Craftify My Love.

But really, there are so many options. Use whatever supplies you have at hand and love to work with!

  1. This is a fabulous idea! I love keepsakes and this is a great way to reuse them. Now every time she reads, she will remember the trip to the zoo with you. Purple is my favorite color to.

    1. Yes Jenny, that’s exactly how it is. She already requested the next trip to the zoo, the ice cream parrot, playground and a visit at my home ?? I just love her. She’s 4.

  2. This is such a fun idea! I will be doing this for my kids. I always loved hanging on to all of my ticket stubs when I was younger and this will be a fun way to keep them.

    1. Hi Heather, if you have a lot of ticket stubs and don’t need a gazillion bookmarks you could use several for one bookmark. Have fun crafting!

  3. These bookmarks are such a great idea. I love ways to make use of keepsakes instead of having them lying around the house or sitting in a box somewhere.

    1. Thank you Emily. That is how I think of it, too. Rather use it than letting it dust over somewhere.

  4. These are absolutely adorable and such a great tutorial! I love how you can really keep these as mementos from some of your favorite shows.

    1. Thank you Michelle. I’m happy you don’t think I’ve added too many images. I hope by dividing it into two instructional posts i kept it clean and absorbable.

    1. Thank you Jessica. I had fun making it. And I bet it’s even more fun to get crafty with the little ones.

    1. Hi Victoria! Thank you so much for your little note. I hope you enjoy making your own vacation memento if you find the time for it.

  5. This is a great idea. We have lots of those from our trips, it’s a lot better than keeping them in boxes like we’re doing today. I would probably laminate them, though, to make sure they last longer.
    Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party. Pinned.
