I love going to the beach and collecting seashells and sea glass. Lucky for me I live on Okinawa where there are a TON of beautiful beaches, so I have been fortunate in finding lots of “treasures.” The problem is what do I do with the BAGS of stuff I have found.
I have scoured the Internet and Pinterest to get ideas, but I wanted something that I could send home to loved ones and friends. Then an idea struck one day while I was shopping at a 100 yen store. I had come across a small glass jar and decided to make a beach jar for my best friend.
I started with the jar and added in sand, some pieces of sea glass, and a seashell or two.
Then I picked a piece of origami paper that I thought complimented the items in the jar to use with a label. I wanted to use origami paper since it is Japanese and the gift was coming from Okinawa, Japan.
I then cut out the label, punched a hole through it and attached it to the jar with ribbon. I was very happy with the end result.
