School Memory Jar for Petaloo

Tomorrow it's back-to-school for my kidlet. I'm going to miss having that boy around all day.

I have to be honest, I'm usually completely stumped when challenged to create a 'back to school' project. This year however I was a woman on a mission! I knew that I wanted to create a project for keeping memories.

I've taken a good sized jar with a wide mouth. The lid has been gussied up with a bit of paper from Graphic 45's ABC Primer Deluxe Collector's Edition and I've added trims and flowers from Petaloo.

A length of wide Crochet Lace Trim and Burlap Trim are wrapped around the jar, then Burlap Small SunflowersBurlap Wild Sunflowers and a sprig of DIY-Baby’s Breath is added. A tag and key are the final touches.

So now I have a place to store all of my son's memories from grade 7. Notes from his adventures, snapshots and small treasures found in his pockets. They'll fill this jar and be kept safe and sound. 

Here's hoping grade 7 is the best year ever :)
