Today I wanted to share with you a quick and easy 3D project that I will use all year long.....a new calendar for 2018!
I found the calendar printable online for free and printed it off. Then I used my paper trimmer and trimmed each month to 2" x 2 1/2 " and then stapled them together.
Next I went to my scrap bin and found a piece of Real Red card stock and trimmed it down to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
I decided to use some of my new designer series papers from the 2018 Occasions Catalog that starts Jan 3....it is called Tutti Fruiti....and is GORGEOUS stuff! I trimmed it to 4" x 5 1/4".
Then I made a contrasting mat for my calendar pad using the back side of the same dsp! Love the color coordination.
I grabbed my retired Little Numbers dies and cut out the 2018 and attached them.
To finish it off I chose Lemon Lime Twist ribbon for a festive bow.
This bright and colorful calendar will be on my desk at work all year long....LOVE it!
Oh yeah...almost forgot....so this stands freely I made a little stand for the back side....
-I took a scrap of card stock 2" by 6 1/2" .
-I scored it at 2, 4, and 6 inches.
-Next fold it into a triangle and put Tear and Tape on the 1/2 inch part and stick it down so it maintains its triangular shape.
-Then I simply added more Tear and tape to one side of the triangle and affixed it to the center back of calendar at the bottom. Voila!
Here is a card that helps you use up some of that ever growing pile of scraps, and create a really cute card at the same time.....win win...
