Today I will show you how to turn admission tickets into a bookmark. I think this is a wonderful idea to make a keepsake for a wonderful memory you’ve made with your loved ones.
As a plus, it gives you the possibility to get creative. There is literally no limit in this project! Let your imagination run wild on how you want to design your very individual bookmark from an entrance card.
Further down I will show you two ways to make memento bookmarks from a zoo ticket that could be easily done by kids, too.
- I added tons of photos as inspiration for your children. Let them take a look at those photos,
- provide them with a variety of supplies and then
- grab a cup of coffee, lean back and simply be amazed by your kids’ creativity!

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.
- Cutting Mat and Sharp Knife or Paper Cutter (that one just made it on my wish list for Christmas 😉
- Fuse (You might want to assist your kid while using this tool)
- Hole Punch
- Crafting Glue and Glue Stick
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.
- Admission Tickets
- Scrapbook Paper (I always like to have a sensitive priced pad like this one at home)
- Solid Cardstock
- Ribbon in various colors (learn how you can get your ribbon for free in my FREE Guide to Craft Supplies for Low or No Money)
- Glitter Sequins & Flowers
- Sheet Protectors or Zip-Locks
- Washi Tape
But really, there are so many options. Use whatever supplies you have at hand and love to work with!
How to Turn Admission Tickets into a Bookmark
If you don’t have the time right now to sit down and get your craft on, please make sure to pin this tutorial to Pinterest.
I made sure to include A LOT of photos in these very detailed instructions, to make it super easy for you or your kids to follow along. All of these in one post would simply be too much, so I figured it is easier to split things up:

Creating a bookmark from great summer photos is your go-to alternative if you don’t have any ticket stubs but still want to create keepsake bookmarks. Make sure to take some gorgeous photos of your summer fun activities (check the following links further down for some great inspiration!) and make your very own photo memory bookmark.

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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Thank you Emily. That is how I think of it, too. Rather use it than letting it dust over somewhere.
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.
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.
So pretty, such a fun tutorial!
Thank you Jessica. I had fun making it. And I bet it’s even more fun to get crafty with the little ones.
Great idea and great memento of a fun summer memory!
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.
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.
Laminating is an option I’ve mentioned, yes! That is, if you have one of those
