For this challenge I used leftover craft materials from four different generations of crafters. I started with a small med vial I had saved to make small terrariums. I had used a couple in swaps. I used leftover fimo from another swap. My daughter and I had made Harry Potter figure charms. I used the fimo to make a stopper for the bottle. I then used thin acrylic yarn/thread leftover from when my mom made needle punch embroidery. I used the needle punch yarn to crochet a cover and make string to wear it. To finish it off I took an extra shell from a craft my grandmother made. I filled it with sand leftover from another swap. I plan to put a message in it but can not decide what it should say.

I love this, what a great idea to encompass supplies from your family members. Such a thoughtful way of making something.
