Trinkets to be “rediscovered” after a year. I might do it one day this year. Anything that might be interesting after a year can be added. Time capsules are meant to capture pieces of today and preserve them so that they can be enjoyed well into the future. On the other hand, if you are slightly hazy about what you were doing or thinking a year ago, a short-term time capsule is the way to go! It can be based on what you are doing or loving right at the moment, or it can be a collection of all the things you did and loved the year before. No words spark the right idea? Right now, off the top of your head, can you tell me what you were reading this week in 2013? Drop one orange candy coated sunflower seed into the middle of your top circle, as a nose. Continue to add items until the bottle is full and then add the lid, you can also decorate the outside if you wish or seal the top with wax.
Some also full list spells and rituals that can be used but if you are drawn to a particular herb, oil or other item following your own intuition can often result in a more tailored and successful outcome. If you aren’t going to bury your time capsule, then you have more options for decoration. When the year is over, and you have opened the time capsule, it can serve as a storage container to add more keepsakes from the year. If you want something more organized than just a jar of random mementos, try creating a jar with a theme. If you use a flash drive, try to seal it very well inside of a plastic bag or smaller container to protect it. Children grow, learn new words, try new things and change everyday. Therefore, a combination of words, images and keepsakes are the best option for your time capsule.

With your fingers, or another round object, shape your reindeer antlers to look however you’d like and set them aside.

The money is optional of course, but I like to include it because it symbolizes that no matter what, our family will never be completely without a dollar. Copy of a recent family photo. Although it is a great idea to have fun with time capsules that can be buried or hidden away for years and years, making a one-year version can be a fun family tradition. Perhaps something to be sealed up and opened 10, 15 or more years down the road. Since this jar will be unearthed in only a year, it isn’t really the place for memories you want to revisit in 50 or so years.
I will pin this! What Will You Remember Next Year? Think of it as a scrapbook that you are going to open in one year. Gather around after a special meal, open the capsule, and relive the year. For example, our jar has mementos, but is basically a luck and prosperity jar for the year. Once your jar is filled, sealed and hidden away for the year, all you have to do is live life until it is time for it to be opened. After the jar is filled and sealed, I add a little extra protection by dipping the lid in melted wax. Take one just for this occasion and seal it in a plastic bag for extra protection.
