I started with a basic journal I picked up from Michael's. You could easily make your own with a three ring notebook and card stock instead if you don't want to purchase something. I embellished each page of the journal with sports related paper and stickers. I made sure each page had a variety of sports so each page would be versatile. I didn't want any one page to appear designated for a particular type of sporting event.
We currently have a small box holding the ticket stubs to events my daughter has attended with us. I'm looking forward to adding her first ticket journal to my handmade Christmas gift list!
My husband's book was designed specifically for sports related events but there are so many options to make the book appropriate for other ticket stubs. A theatre or music related book would make a fun gift!
