Polar Express Printable Ticket

UPDATE:  For some reason several people have had problems getting my printable to line up when printing!  I believe I have fixed the problem.  The new link below is for the NEW printable and should work for everyone!
There is also a post for another ticket!  This one is is without believe word across.  I had enough people ask I figured I should go ahead and create one.
CLICK HERE to go to that post.

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!
CLICK HERE to download.
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!

UPDATE: NOT everyone's turned out as perfectly as mine.  Maybe it was just my printer.  The new download above should work!

(This is the back of the tickets, but... look how pretty!)
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.

    1. Oh no! I am so sorry! I wish I could have seen this sooner! I would have emailed them to you? I can't seem to find anything wrong with the link... You should be able to click on the part of the post that says CLICK HERE and it will pull the PDF up in a different window. Then you can just right click and save to your desktop?

  14. I'm a teacher, and I'm showing The Polar Express and serving hot cocoa in my class tomorrow. These tickets are awesome! I'm going to hide them under their chairs and walk around the room with my hole punch asking for their tickets before I show the movie. The tickets printed front and back perfectly. Thank you!!
