And now onto my project....CALENDAR FUN!!!!
I LOVE giving calendars as gifts and the nice thing about THIS calendar, it NEVER goes out of date! By easily moving the numbers around and changing the month label, this calendar keeps going...and going...and going! LOL!!!
When I started this project I was going to do the 'dates' on magnets to make them changeable. Then I started pricing out magnets. I figured you would need at least 50 per board and the BEST price I found ws $16 for 100...that is still alot. I wanted this to be an affordable project that you could make as gifts or, if you are a demonstrator, you could use for a class or camp.
It's difficult to see on the picture, but there are acrylic strips across the board (and an acrylic pocket on the top) that lets you easy change from one month to the next.
I wanted some 'special' pieces for my calendar and used two of the mini sets...It's a Wrap Holidays (and also It's a Wrap Occasions and Gift Givers) to decorate up my calendar! (You can see more of this in my tutorial)
So, I've included the tutorial for the calendar AND a file with the numbers/months/days of the week that you can print off and use for making your calendar. Everything is sized for a 10 x 10 finished calendar.
Have fun making this and don't forget to head over to my blog...StamperCamper's Corner and leave me a comment to be entered into the BLOG CANDY!!!
