Your 1st anniversary is a time to celebrate and look back at what a fab first year you have had. One way to keep all those special moments safe is to add them to your very own anniversary time capsule.
Fill your time capsule with paper goodies for your traditional 1st anniversary gift of paper and relish in the thought that the modern gift of clocks and time is also represented by the fact you are saving memories.
Have fun filling yours with happy memories from the first year as husband and wife.
1 year anniversary gift ideas are traditionally made from paper, we came across this sweet idea and had to share it with you.
Pinatas are popular in Mexico, they are made of paper or straw and filled with sweets and candy to celebrate a special occasion. The pinata is then hung up high and everyone tries to break it with sticks to get the treasure.
But rather than breaking up your pinata how about using it as your very own anniversary time capsule? There is a section on the pinata that you use to fill it normally with candy but instead fill it with keepsakes from your 1st year together. You could have; photos, tickets from shows you have been to, little gifts and souvenirs that remind you of important events in your year together.
Here are some gorgeous Pinatas that would be perfect to make your own anniversary time capsule;
