Jar of Beach Memories with Sand & Shells
It doesn't get much more simple than this!
All you need is the jar of your choice, some sand, shells, and a couple of photos.

I love the concept of a memory jar. Theyíre a fun way to display your photos and keepsakes of any special event or memory. I chose to create one about our trip to Sanibel Island last year. We found one area of beach that had the most incredible views, wildlife and beautiful shells. And this jar is the perfect way to commemorate those memories.
For this beach memory jar, she started by filling the jar about 1/3 of the way with sand.
The angled landscape was created by tilting the jar to shift the sand to the desired slant.
The photos of various sizes were printed, and simply inserted down into the sand to hold them in place.
Other items used in this particular DIY craft:
1. Variety of seashells.
2. Border-punched grass.
3. A stamp that was created by using the Postage Stamp Border Punch.
4. Twine was wrapped around the top of the jar, and cute tags were created with stamp designs.
How cool is that? :) This is definitely worthy of sharing.
Great job, Patti!
