(December 2010) Last Saturday was our Christmas Party at our church. It was a super awesome breakfast with a Polar Express Theme! I signed up to bring cinnamon rolls, which was crazy because I have never had a pan turn out. I was determined and it paid off! Perfect cinnamon rolls just like my hubby’s mom makes! He was very pleased. After everyone had breakfast there was a Polar Express movie and a beautiful choir and then…. Santa! Which was played by my awesome hubby (he worked off the cinnamon rolls he ate in sweat in that gigantic suit…) I was his elf so I didn’t take any pictures. Hopefully I can get some from the millions that were taken soon! Don’t worry… I will share.
Anyways, the kids were rotated from seeing Santa to taking rides on the POLAR EXPRESS! Our group had made a float for the town Christmas Parade and all the kids got to ride around on a Polar Express Train Car! But… before riding the Polar Express an iconic ticket was needed for boarding! Here is where they enlisted my help. They printed invitations that were on plain paper and were printed in color and… of course nobody would remember to bring them. Last minute I was asked to create a smaller ticket the kids could keep!
I figured I could find an image on google, print in gray on gold colored cardstock and call it good! But… I wanted it to print front and back. I wanted about 6 to a page and I wanted it black and white! Nada. Nothing met my criteria! So… I made one!
Once you download you should be able to print page on a couple times on gold cardstock, flip and then print page 2 on the other side! Mine ended up lining up perfectly!
My secret ingredient… Glittery hairspray after printing! It gave the tickets an added flavor! They were perfect! You should be able to find it in the party favor isle at Walmart.
And.. I couldn’t leave you with just the old ticket could I! The new ticket has a few more added details. And… The new tickets have words from ALL the kids tickets in the movie! I thought that was neat. lol I love the holly leaves! And notice the ticket number… lol I am so clever. (eye rolling myself here.) If you look at the image below I just printed these on gold paper and sprinkled them with glitter. I you can find the glittery hairspray that works the best!
Please let me know if you use them! And happy Polar Express viewing! Hopefully these make your night a little more fin!
