Hello, hope you are having a great week so far. Today Im sharing with you my Memory Jar I created as one of my projects for Scrapmatts this month.
Last month the family and I went to Bundaberg for a holiday. The boys loved going to the beach everyday and they loved looking for shells and rocks. They picked a couple to take home with them and I used some in this Jar (along with some sand they collected too) as I thought it would be a great way to display them...and a great excuse to use some cool Scrapmatts pieces.
(apologies for the photos...it is very hard to photograph a jar that reflects all teh time hehehe)
and some close ups....
I wanted the focus of this memory jar to be the photo and the little shells the boys found so not to take that away with papers and frills I used some washi tape from D*lish Scraps behind the 'happy memories' chipboard pieces.
I love the Sea stars that Scrapmatts have, they are so cute.
I also used a tiny glass bottle to write a little 'message' of where and when we were in Bundaberg.
To tie the washi tape in I also used it around the top of the lid for the jar, and then underneath used some small rope I found in my stash as it gave a nautical feel to the Jar. I also used the 'Paradise Found' Tag and anchor from Scrapmatts to go with the theme also.
The Scrapmatts Chipboard I used for the memory Jar are...
