With the end of the year bearing down on us, it is time to start thinking about gifts for your children's teachers, work colleagues and neighbours.
In our class last week we made these cute projects with mini calenders that would be perfect for teacher or colleague gifts. The first one is a calendar to put on the refrigerator. The 'All Abloom' and 'Moonlight' paper stacks are perfect for this project as there are heaps of coordinating designs and you can get multiple calendars from one set of pages.
The next one is a cute triangular desk calendar that folds flat for posting. It would be lovely to include with your Christmas/New year card.
I have used the spotted print from 'Gold Soiree' Designer Series Paper and matted the calendar with Gold Foil paper to match. You could put matching DSP on the reverse side, but I decided to make use of the space by listing the Victorian Public Holidays. You could also use the space for school term dates.
The last project was this easel combining the calendar and a sticky note pad. This would be very useful for colleagues or in the home office. This could be easily adapted for a more male oriented version.
If you would like to make these projects, you can get all the details and dimensions from my tutorial here.
I purchased my mini calendars from hobbycraftandscrap.com.au. The item is called Couture Creations - Calendar Tabs 2015.
