7Gypsies Reproduction Ticket Holder

I just realized I never got back to you on the reproduction ticket holder I recently purchased. The first thing I noticed about it was that it looked brand new, so I took some sandpaper to it to rough it up a bit. I also banged out some of the sharp edges with a hammer. When I finished beating it up, it looked like this:

Then for the fun part~ I gathered some of my favorite ephemera, including a letter written in the early 1900's, an old flashcard, a blotter, an art tag, an old receipt, a soap coupon, a milk cap, some dairy coupons, a couple of old stamps, and the photograph we found in my furniture I mentioned here.
The thing I love about this is the fact that it can be constantly changed. I think I'll change it up for major holidays like Halloween and Christmas.
