I have seen rotary perforating tools in Michael's crafts, so they may be available in Joanne's. They would be found in the scrapbooking section of the store. It looks like a miniature pizza cutter, with perforating 'pins' on the roller.
The one I saw in Michael's resembled a ladybug with the cutter on the underneath surface.
I'm not sure of the price--I think it is more than $10--but it would be better than ruining your sewing machine needles.

The perforations that you're thinking of are made from a perforator, which can cost between $40 and $300 depending on the number of sheets that you want to perforate at once. If you don't want to pay for a perforator, I'd suggest either pre-cutting the tickets or using a sharp knife and a ruler VERY CAREFULLY! It won't be even, however.

If you have a paper trimmer, there are changeable blades for them and one is a perforated blade.
check out the fiskars line.

you could just score the cardstock. when the time comes to tear off the stub, fold it at the score line first. scoring can be done with a ruler & the dull side of a butter knife or an empty ball point pen. put the ruler on the line, press hard enough with whatever you are using for scoring to leave an indent on the cardstock

I've seen rollers like pizza cutters except with spikes...
also you could try special craft scissors
they probably have these things @ Joann's, Michaels, or other craft stores

You could try something like this:
Use a piece of soft wood (like pine) under the cardstock.

The only way I can think of would be an unthreaded sewing machine.
