Because everyone needs a ticket bowl

Mod Podge ticket bowl

I’m not being sarcastic, I’m being completely serious – I need one of these as soon as possible. Thanks to Amy from Buggie and Jellybean, I’m going to spend the next few years searching for as many ticket rolls as I can find. I want to make some of these for gifts, for supplies, for centerpieces. . . I love ticket bowls! Also to note, if you are a beginning Mod Podger, this would be a GREAT project for you. No wrinkles to worry about. Visit here for Amy’s tutorial, which is very well photographed and written.

I also found this version from Cathie and Steve, so click on the picture below to visit them too.

    Every raffle needs an official raffle ticket bowl – totally fitting and fun!

    These are fabulous! My Wal-Mart carries rolls of tickets in the office section, near the party supplies. Can’t wait to make one! :)

    ahhhhhhhhhh It’s one of the best things ever!!! These are super duper cool and I simply must make one! …or two or three….

    This also works great with magazines, but takes a lot longer. I had my fourth graders make them. Just wrap magazines around a dowel, flatten, wrap in a spiral. When it’s as big as you want it, shape it and Mod Podge it.

    You can actually get rolls of tickets at Wal-Mart now, of all places. Go over to the office supplies, and you’ll find ’em near the push pins & post-it notes.

    Hi Amy,
    These are so cute! They sell these tickets at Walmart, Staples and party stores for about $4-$6 a roll. It would be great to find vintage rolls, but the new ones a perfect too.
    Have a great weekend,

    Amy—thanks for sharing this link! I tried to leave a comment over on the blog but sometimes I have zero luck with Blogspot and leaving a comment with my Google ID. I have no problems here but other sites are a complete no-go.

    Thanks again!!

    Thanks Amy for the bloggie love! If you want to be SUPER adventurous you also can go online and have ticket rolls made, for personalization. And there is some cute ones out there on the web that are about $4-$5 a roll that say wine or beer and other fun things.

    Happy crafting everyone!

    I am with you all the way! GOT to have one – or two – or three!

    I am thinking, if I use the terracotta colored ticket rolls, the bowl would almost look like unfinished pottery!

    Very cool idea – Thanks for sharing this.

    These are so great! I gotta have at least one. But I’m going to be disappointed if I can’t find tickets in that beautiful blue color!
