Admit One. Ticket Shadow Box

I made this for my friend Emily who LOVES to go to shows of all kinds.  I bought a shadow box at Hobby Lobby.  Then I created this ticket on my Silhouette, using its trace feature.  Next, I cut it out using vinyl, and transferred it onto the glass.  

Then came the "handy man" part.  I drilled a few holes in the top, so I could fit the jigsaw blade into it. I made sure that I was far enough away from the glass, so it wouldn't shatter.  The frame I used had 2 layers of wood, I accidentally broke one off, and it made it much easier. So if I were to make this again, I would do that first! Then it was time for the jigsaw! I tried a few different shapes, but ended up with a long oval.  Finally, I painted it black to hide the slot and filled it with some popcorn and an AMC gift card! I hope she likes it! I can't wait to see it filled up!
