Pick a Container
Opt for a sturdy and resealable container. If you’re burying the time capsule in the ground, use a Mason jar or stainless steel container. Choose a box theme, and decorate to your liking.
Fill With Memories
Have fun with this! Write down completed goals, dreams, special events or birthday memories. Save tickets or trinkets from vacations and shows. Polaroid photos make great instant keepsakes. Add descriptions, dates and notes explaining the objects enclosed.
Bury or Display
Bury, store or display your time capsule on a shelf. Keep it sealed for as long as you want, or open the following year.
