28.12.2017...3D Thursday....

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 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 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!
