Another way to preserve fond memories is using a jam jar! yep you heard it!
A few years ago as a family we had our first trip to Cornwall, I adored it, to the point I cried on my way home as I so didnt want to leave.
One of the most favourite places for me was time spent at St Ives, its totally beautiful and we spent time on the beach there.
I also collected sand from every beach we went too!
Heres my photo jar
Choose a treasured photo and cut to size to fit in your glass jar
I filled my jar with the sand I'd collected and a pebble I'd found too
You may need to curl your photo a little, I placed it at the back of the 'scene' in the jar
I then screwed the lid and added a touch of glue so it stuck on and decorated with pretty patterened paper with a seaside feel (added buttons - of course!) and added a tag as a memory for the date and place we visited.
If you join in (and please do) pop along to the flickr group and add your upcycled glass jars
