Ready for a few more peeks at what we released at CHA?
How about a closer look at our cha-buzz-inducing-gotta-have-it ticket holder coming this April.
When we first saw this tucked away in one of our favorite euro antique spots we knew we might be on to something....
There were so many things to love from its worn wooden base to the carefully hand-coiled springs gently holding fat stacks of ruffled transit tickets. It smelled of old papers, musty wood, a tinge of inkiness... it carried the allure of distant journeys and curiosity of where each of those tickets had whisked passengers off to.
We wanted it. And we knew we had to share it with gypsies everywhere.
So we brought it back to the workshop and imagined. What kinds of memories could be tucked behind the coils? Could our ephemera cards and findings fit? What about photos and recipes? How big could they be? Just how could creative gypsies use this?
We imagined something like this....
layers of tiny tickets, trinkets and tags
or maybe this...
big 8x10 photos, juxaposed with ephemera pieces and tiny bits
we figured we'd need to create some inspired tags and tickets to fit perfectly in the ticket holder like these...
retro train tickets
months of the year tickets
or lucky #7 tickets?
they look darn cute adorned with rubbings and label stickers...
What will you do with your ticket holder?
