This was a really quick and really cheap idea I had after our vacation to Florida in April. I had spent the day with my best friend and her kids at the beach and wanted some way to save the shells and display them without spending a lot of money or having to dust individual shells every week. Here’s what I came up with:
|A quick little shell/photo memory jar!|
Step 1: Supplies – You’ll need the pictures you want to use (I printed mine on regular printer paper), the shells you want to use, a circle cutter of some kind (I used the Fiskars circle template and shape cutter), a small jar, some scrap scrapbook paper, ribbon and some scissors.
Here’s the jar I used:
|I picked mine up for $1.97 at Wal-mart.|
Step 2: Cut out the pictures and your scrap paper to the size you desire.
|Here’s what you’ll have when you’re done cutting.|
Step 3: Attach your circles inside the jar with a small piece of scrapbooking tape.
Step 4: Add shells and decorate your jar. Here’s my final product. I love that I can see pictures from that day and have a small reminder of the fun we had in a decorative way. It literally took me half an hour. So fun!
