Scrapbook Music Memory Jar: A Collab With Book Murmuration

I’ve been lucky enough to collab with some wonderful bloggers already so I’m always excited when a new opportunity comes my way. A few weeks ago, the lovely Louise from Book Murmuration suggested the idea of working together on scrapbook memory jar posts and straight away I thought this is exactly my kinda thing! Admittedly, I didn’t quite know what a scrapbook memory jar was, but after a quick Google Image search I knew I would love creating my own.

Louise is a book addict, cat lover and kidlit fan-girl with a love for bath stuff, stationery, walking, writing, cake and all things Disney. If you love books, pretty stationery and colourful things, I encourage you to check out Louise on Instagram, and give a follow over on Twitter as well! Why not head over to Book Murmuration to find out what Louise has included in her scrapbook memory jar too…

After a bit of thought, I decided to make a jar dedicated to music memories. I have a dusty old box of CD’s which I am too sentimental (lazy) to get rid of and a collection of concert tickets which I rarely look at. The memory jar was the perfect opportunity to get all my old memorabilia out and create an awesome 3D scrapbook to display on my shelf. Other ideas could include holidays, days out or special occasions.

The cool thing about scrapbook memory jars is that anything and everything can go in them. I found a selection of concert tickets, album sleeves, pins, badges, patches, guitar plectrums, festival wrist bands and gig flyers which I had collected. It was so nostalgic seeing concert tickets from over ten years ago.

I haven’t bought a CD in actual years, so it was pretty awesome to get a snapshot of my music tastes during my CD buying days. Although not much has changed, I’m forever listening to Oasis songs.

I found these cute cassette bookmarks which were perfect for the music memory jar. I also added my pretty guitar plectrums as this represents both my love of playing the guitar and colourful things.

I couldn’t make a music jar without including a few musical enamel pins. The Rainbow Guitar Amp is by Brittpaperscissors, the 80s Mixtape is made by Colouryourlifeclub and the Union Jack Fender Strat is from Amazon and it is only £3.49, what a pin-lovers bargain.

A small selection of badges from my punk days (the rest of them were too rude for the blog, hah).

I love that everything here represents a little bit of my music tastes, yay for cheesy 80s tunes! 

A festival wrist band which I have had for 12 years now, wow.

And here is the scrapbook music memory jar decorated with washi tape, guitar plectrums, stickers.

This was a really fun thing to do, thank you to Louise for the awesome idea! Why not head over to Book Murmuration to find out what Louise has included in her scrapbook memory jar too… Have you made a scrapbook memory jar? What mementos would you put in yours? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!

    I love it! Such pretty photographs and I love how your theme meant you could include objects from different years. ☺️

    Is there nothing washi tape can’t do? I used some on my jar lid. It took two jars to get it right- the secret is to cut it off at the edges instead of wrapping it all the way around.

    Such a lovely collaboration! Thank you for joining me. X

    This is such a cool idea! I bet it was great to look back on it all. Also loved seeing some of your memorabilia, spotted a lot of bands I absolutely love. I’m pretty sure that everyone who’s even vaguely into alternative music had a punk phase, it’s just a given really.

    This is such a fantastic and fun idea and a music one would be right up my street. In fact I think it would look a lot like yours Bexa. I was forever listening to the distillers, nofx, billy talent and bands alike. I think I could do one specifically for concert and festival tickets. It’s funny what you keep for sentimental value haha. You’ve arranged and decorated your 3D scrapbook in such a beautiful way.

    I’ve loved reading you and Louise’s posts today- I love the idea of these jars, and it’s lovely to see two bloggers whose posts I love collaborating! Making a jar themed around music is brilliant. I have no idea what I could put in one, but I’d love to one day as I adore music and there are a lot of songs I connect to specific memories.

    I really love this of a scrapbook memory jar. I have never heard of this. I would love to find small items, or paper items for various times in my life and put them in a jar. I think this would be a great gift idea to give to a friend. You stuff the jar with memories of the things that are important to your friend.

    So nostalgic 😍 I would definitely do one over all the movies I seen from the past years. I like to keep certain things not only for great memories but for when I have children. I want them to physically see what it was like growing up, kinda have some type of history or treasure for them as I explain what it was like in _ year 🤗. Lol!

    You are ON FIRE with these collaborations! Oooh, I haven’t heard of a scrapbook memory jar. I thought that’s a really neat idea. I like how the jars can have a dedicated theme, like this one with the music-related things. I love how you collect so many cute little things. You are living the life! I suppose the closest I have to a memory jar is a jar of sand and beach water from Hawaii.

    I’ve never heard of a scrapbook memory jar before but I love the concept! I have so many tickets and wrist bands from festivals and concerts dotted around and this may be the perfect way to both display and store them.

    Hi Bexa, As usual, I’m amazed by how creative you are. This is a gene I’m missing in my DNA, so I’m in genuinely in awe of people who can make such beautiful, visually appealing things. I’d never heard of a memory jar before, though we have some gigantic memory boxes in the basement. I’m thinking it could be a fun activity during our first snowstorm of the season – sift through all our beautiful memories and find some to showcase. My husband and I lost most of our music artifacts during a flood about 15 years ago; this has made me realize we should probably take some photos of the stuff that’s precious to us now so that we can preserve the memories come “heck or high water”. Thanks as always for bringing sunshine into my day!

    Oh my god, Bexa, that is amazing work. I’m a huge music fan lover as well (yay Oasis!) and kept concert tickets for many years. I just stuck all of them in a notepad thinking I was creative, but this is something else. It’s actually making me want to give this a try. I’ve also kept a lot of festival wristbands. As usual with you Bexa, the pins are just cute as hell.

    I’m never heard of this? BRB – I have to write an email to Pinterest asking why this has never shown up in my feed since it connects to so much that I pin.

    This is an amazing ideas. My jar would be filled with Disney park items, or horror movie items.

    First, your photographs are GORGEOUS! I know that is random, but as someone who is starting on a photography journey, I have been hyper aware of photos I look at and I love how they look! I think they capture your memory jar so well! As for the memory jar, I LOVE this idea. It is fantastic! I will reiterate others and say this would be an amazing gift! And too, I am thinking it would be something really nice to display around the house- on a bookcase or something, and it has meaning 🙂 I think I will be making one in the near future.

    This is such a wonderful idea! I’d never heard of it before. I love the mix between rock and cheesy 80s tunes. I’d love to make one dedicated to my 90s faves with my best friends. Lot’s of Spice Girls and Steps memorabilia for sure!

    Ooh what a fun idea, I’ve never heard of a scrapbook memory jar prior to this post either. It’s definitely a good idea for all those tidbits that you keep over the years but dont’ know what to do with (definitely beats shoving them in some box where they never see the light of day).

    And it’s so fun getting a chance to look at what items you chose to go into your jar. Those enamel pins are super cute (I have always loved enamel pins but haven’t actually bought any myself, isn’t that crazy?) and wow, I love that you have kept things like your concert tickets/wristbands for so long! There’s only one concert ticket that I’ve kept over the years (and it is in much worse shape than yours), it’s for the NSYNC concert I went to when I was like 12. Definitely a little different than the shows you went to. 😉

    I honestly am not sure what I would dedicate a scrapbook memory jar to if I were to put one together. After having to move between countries so many times I’ve sort of learned to let a lot of things go. Maybe a wedding one for whatever knick knacks I kept after my wedding last year? I’m sure I could pull something together for that, and it would be meaningful since obviously that was a big day!

    Thanks for sharing 🙂 xx

      Thank you so much for the lovely thoughtful comment Asti! 💖 I love your idea of a wedding jar of knick knacks from the big day, that’s really sweet & special and would be lovely to look back on. Glad you enjoyed the post and thank you as always for your kind words ☺️💕 xx

    I love this!! This sounds like such a fun thing to put together. I can’t remember the last time I bought an actual CD either so all of mine (tucked away in a box mostly) would be a trip down childhood’s memory lane too. I’m such a huge Oasis fan as well, I used to have a really long drive to school on a morning as a kid and my dad always had Definitely Maybe on in the car. This has made me feel really nostalgic now! Great post x
