Hello my lovelies!
So, how’s the new year treating you? Well! Let me begin my first DT project of the year with what better than a desk calendar! I’ve made two of these with the 6″/6″ sheets from the gorgeous ‘Coral Cluster’ and ‘Floral Nymph’ collections. Don’t they come so handy for such mini projects?
I’ve used very basic supplies for these – 4 pieces of 6″/6″ MDF boards, calendar print-outs (you could use the stamps too, but i wanted to make many of these so I printed), some lacy and doilies die-cuts, card stock, scrapbooking rings and some metal charms, flower, sequins, etc. for finishing.
To begin with, I chose the prints of my choice and covered the MDF boards from both sides and punched holes. I decorated the cover board by layering the fussy cut flowers and a quote cut-out for one and shaker element and flower for the other.
I like to create additional utilities for my projects, so, on the reverse side of the cover i created a pocket with tag/bookmark for one calendar and a sticky note with pen for the other.
Next, i completed the other boards by putting some lacy and doilies die-cuts. Finally, i bound the calenders together with scrapbooking rings and finished by hanging some metal charms.
And the multi – purpose desk calenders are ready! So, what do you think of them? They make great new year gifts – I’m going to make quite a few of these and gift my friends 🙂
Wish you a crafty year ahead!
