Send a family or friend on a nostalgic journey and make a time capsule birthday gift from the 1920’s 30’s or 50’s! Brimming with treats and gifts.
She loved the gift so much that she refused to open or eat any of the treats inside! I labeled everything with the year it was created and a brief back-story to it and she saved them to show to people when they came to visit her.
Time Capsule Birthday Gift! 1920’s, 30’s, 40’s
I had this tin in my craft closet for awhile. I used to use it in my kitchen decor, but haven’t for awhile. It has The Saturday Evening Post picture on it. An issue in 1922. Perfect for the era I was going for! And just the right size for everything I collected to put in it.
My mom told me a couple of her favorite songs, so I made her a CD with them. The photo on the front is her! She grew up on a farm in Boulder, Utah. I also included a photo book that included more facts about that decade (price of a loaf of bread, gallon of gas, etc.). It was absolutely fascinating to learn about the time she was a child.
Did you know that Kool-aid, Scotch Tape and Band-aids were all invented in the 1920s and early 30s? I didn’t until I made this gift! I attached descriptions, time frames and facts to each item. It was fun reading through them!
