Ballard Design Knock Off Ticket Sign




You can now order this sign HERE!!!!





I have to give Carrie over at Dittle Dattle the credit for this inspiration! She did one and got me thinking that this would be perfect for my theatre girl. Being a sign painter I usually don't make them for myself. Kinda like a mechanic that don't work on his car or a doctor that doesn't go to one when sick!

But I had to do this one! If you have access to a vinyl cutter it is so easy! If not go to a sign shop and ask them to cut some for you and you can apply it yourself.

I started with the Ballard inspiration.......

 Vintage Ticket Plaque
I got the dimensions from them 12"hx24"wx1/4"d and cut a piece of finished wood to look like a ticket.







I love the way it turned out! This is for my theatre girl! She is gonna love this! It will go with the whole Hollywood/Broadway theme she has all over!





I left some of the vinyl off to make it look older. 

Thanks Carrie for the inspiration!

Now to go pop some popcorn!

YOU CAN NOW PURCHASE A TICKET IN MY ETSY SHOP ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THIS BLOG!

Very cool! Love love love it :D
Yours turned out great. I like how you added the vinyl border. I was a little intimidated and left it off of my. Thanks for sharing and I'm glad I could inspire.
