Monday means another challenge on the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog. This week the challenge is: Anything Goes

The first time I saw a memory jar I thought, now there’s an idea I’ll have to try! Well a year later I finally got around to it. I wanted both sides of my jar to look finished so I printed two of my favorite photos from one of our trips to Cherry Grove, South Carolina. I used double sided adhesive and stuck them together back to back. I placed a small metal clip on the bottom of the photos and anchored the metal clip to the bottom of the jar with glue dots. I then added the sand, shells and the little flag. I finished off the project with some twine and a tag. I placed a sand dollar that we found on the beach on top of the jar.

What a wonderful way to keep those vacation memories by using your pictures and souvenirs that you have collected. The possibilities for memory jars are limitless! What about creating a memory jar for the birth of a baby, a wedding, graduation, birthday … the list goes on!
