Year in a JarJanuary 2, 2013 9:34 am Crafts, Kid's Crafts, Winter

My family loves to save trinkets from our travels and events we attend. My drawers are full of ticket stubs and tokens. There are so many years in one space, it’s hard to remember what came from where. This little project starts out simple and you add to it all year. It helps keep those memories organized, giving them a special space.

I found a glass jar tall enough to hold a 4 x 6 vertical picture. I curved the photo and stuffed it in the jar, pressing it against the side.
On the outside of the jar, I stuck vinyl numbers with the year 2013.
Now every time you come home from an event place the ticket stub or cookie fortune in the jar creating a memory time capsule for the year.
Things we collect are pressed pennies, shells from different beaches, ticket stubs, different bottle caps from new beverages we have tried, old licenses, business cards, etc. All trinkets that make up a whole year’s worth or awesome adventures!
