Recycling Flying Tickets Project

This is a wonderful project which involves up-cycling+nostalgia+useful idea all together- Making a collaged photo album from your last vacation's flying tickets!

It seems like ages since our family trip to the US,but actually it's been only 2 month since we came back. During our journey we had a total of 9!!!! flights ,during each we had collect 27!!! flying tickets...

Usually one will throw this suppose to be waist,but not we-we collect ALL our tickets from all our international trips.
After returning to Israel, my hubby decided to clean our storage room and I found VERY old photo albums with this retro photo laminated to the cover (yak),so I ripped off the lamination from the cover,sand it a little to give it a raw surface and gave it a totally new cover by collaging all our tickets and memorabilia onto it. All was topped with a glaze to give it an extra shine and durability and vu-a-la my new and uh,so fantastic photo Album was born

Front Cover-Flying tickets; Mexican phone card & local curtsy (pesos)

Back cover-Manhattan Subway map; Soap bar cover from Mexico,Cancun & some tickets

Inside cover-Cancun resort flyer;Chichen-Itza - Maya's Archiological Piramyds site pass;Alice's Tea Cup place in Manhattan,NY

Album cover inside-cuncun map

All that left is to print the 1,000,000 photos we took and fill our new album with wonderful memories
