Save all of the summer vacation memories by creating a keepsake jar filled with trinkets, pictures and souvenirs. As opposed to a scrapbook or shoe box, keepsake jars can be used as a decoration, showing off what all you did on your vacation.

“Keepsake jars are a great way to add to your office/desk décor and remind you that you did get a vacation once (haha) and will again,” says Jackie Brown owner of Interiors by Jackie Brown. “It’s also a great way to show your co-workers where you went. These are also great bookcase additions or to put in any space to make it more personal.”

To create a keepsake jar first make sure you have a large enough jar to showcase your items. Fill the bottom with something that reminds you of the place you went – sand for a beach, rocks for a coastline, blue paper scrapes for the ocean. Second, place the larger items in your jar. These may need to be secured a bit with hot glue or by sifting them in the sand. Third, add in the smaller memory items, a cork from your night out on the town, a shell from the beach, even a photo taken at the time and printed at home. This is also a fun craft that the kids will enjoy.
