Cute 2016 Mini Calendar Project
November 05, 2015
I'm back again to share another of the projects from last week's class. It is another 3D project and it is perfect as a gift for teachers, neighbours and colleagues as we approach the end of the school year and the festive season.
I call it my Sandwich Board Calendar and I have gone for a blackboard look at the top with the inspiring quote from the 'Perfect Pennants' stamp set, heat embossed in white. I think it is a perfect reminder to have on a calendar that you look at regularly.
The base of the calendar is in Crumb Cake card stock, cut at 10.5cm on the short edge for the length of the A4 sheeet, so you get 2 calendars from one piece of card stock. The mat is in Lost Lagoon and the flower embellishment in Calypso Coral with Wild Wasabi leaves and the Crushed Curry butterfly. It is bright and cheerful and more vibrant in real life. You can change up the colours and embellishment for endless variety. This is a really cost effective gift that fits in a standard C6 envelope and you could include one with your Christmas card.
This photo shows the side view and the hinges that will ensure your calendar stays beautifully upright all year, but folds flat for easy posting. If you look very closely under the hinge you might see that I have reinforced the bottom section and feet to make it even more robust.
For the reverse side, I have printed and cut a Whisper White panel showing the Victorian Public Holidays. However, you could leave this side blank or add some coordinating designer paper to finish.
I now have a tutorial available for this project - click here to go to my Tutorials page.
