I thought I might share my Journal Jar with you. This one was made to journal about your garden, but jars can be made for lots of different subjects. If given as a gift to a non-scrap-booker it is easy for them to just drop items in it so they have the joy of the memories without being crafty.
For this jar I used some papers from the Cottage Garden Scrapbook Set by Kraftyhands at £4.99. I only used a tiny part of the collection, so you should have lots left for cards, scrapbook pages or more jars.
You Will Need
- Garden Cottage Scrapbook Set
- Large glass jar I used a coffee jar (Douwe and Edberts)
- Garden string
- Hessian or Jute
- Distress ink
- Seeds for jar lid
I choose the jar because you are able to put things inside the lid. On this occasion I put in dried seeds, but you could add any small items, buttons, dried flowers etc.
To help the recipient of the jar I printed some ideas on the tag to get them started with their journalling.
Probably too late to use now Autumn is here, but I think it would make a super and thoughtful Christmas gift for a keen gardener with maybe a packet of seeds inside.
