I’m back today with a few more calendar ideas before I have to tear the January page and a quick tutorial on the small desktop calendar I created today and also on my last post HERE.
The first one I want to share is the same concept as the calendars on THIS post but with a very different theme.
I’ve mentioned before that I work in an elementary school library so naturally I was drawn to two stamp sets from Mama Elephant. The adorable images are from the Book Worm stamp set and the sentiment is from a coordinating set, Good Reads.
Here are the measurements for this calendar style:
- The card base measures 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and is scored at 5 1/2″
- The stand measures 4 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ and is scored at 1″, 2 1/4″ and 3 1/2″ on the 4 1/2″ side.
- Fold the stand so that the middle piece is pointing up and glue either end to the back of each side of the card base.
- Decorate as desired.
- The calendars are purchased online at Taylored Expressions.
Here’s a stepped up version using the same stamp sets. I made a lot of this type of calendar for a recent craft fair. They make great little gifts.
I purchased a 5 x 7 acrylic frame and inserted a piece of patterned paper then decorated the front of the frame and added the calendar and Post-it.
Then using some leftover pieces, I created a coordinating bookmark….and then I stopped…haha!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a great week!
