Mini Calendar Projects by Christine


Christine Traversa is here with a fun way to use our new Mini Calendar stickers!



Christine used an empty tin she had in her stash. Using a pencil and some upside down patterned paper, she traced around the edges of the upper lid. She then cut along the lines, and adhered the paper to the lid. She trimmed a border strip from piece of coordinating patterned paper, and glued it on top.

For the inside of the tin, again, she traced onto the back of patterned paper and trimmed it to fit into the tin. To make the piece a bit more decorative, she added another coordinating paper, backed with black cardstock.

For the calendar itself, she took all 12 stickers and backed them onto white cardstock, trimming close to the calendar's edges. Christine mounted them onto black cardstock and cut them into a square shape.

Christine punched each black square in the upper left corner with a small hole punch, and placed a locking ring through all the holes, closing the ring. She mounted the back most page (December) into the tin using foam tape for extra security. Onto the ring, she placed a trimmed strip of coordinating paper, made to look ribbon-like with scissors.

What a fun way to create full-year mini calendar! And...here's a greeting card created by Christine, using Mini Calendar stickers;



Have a wonderful weekend, we're here all next week with more!
