It's an investment going to see your favorite musical acts in concert. Is it worth it? Sure. But once the performance is over, all you have left is your ticket stub. Don't let the experience end there! You can form a collection of your concert tickets and put them on display in your home. You'll get to relive all your good memories all over again when you walk by and see keepsakes on display.
This goes for any old ticket stubs you might have. A memorable sporting event, a movie or any other event ticket (or Broadway playbills)-- you name it. Try one of these 5 creative ways to repurpose and display your concert ticket stubs and other mementos of the live music experience.
