Tiny Calendar Keychain by Christine


Christine Ousley really thought 'out of the' box when we asked her to work our new 2013 Tiny Calendar Stickers... Christine says, "I love calendars. I have one on my desk, one on my phone, and one hanging in the kitchen. I can't tell you how many times I am asked by someone if I know what date is the third Saturday in a month or what day of the week is a certain date. Of course I am always ready with an answer. So I thought why not also have that information ready and hanging right off my keychain?!"


"The keychain calendar measures 1 1/2 x 2 inches. It's super small and oh so cute! I used the newest addition to the SRM Stickers calendar series, Tiny Calendars 2013 - 48099. Each calendar measures 1 x 1 inches! I also used image stickers from the new Calendar Companion sticker sheet - 48010, and the year stickers off of the new Year of Memories 2013 sticker sheet - 48007 and a few other monthly sticker sheets."





"It was pretty easy to create calendar book. I cut each page from heavy white cardstock and adhered my calendar and image stickers. Then I clipped them together with a heavy duty paper binder/clip. Next I smeared a heavy layer of Glossy Accents to the binding side of the stack and let dry overnight. The next morning all of the pages were stuck together and would flip like a book. Then I added some ribbon on the binding to create a hanger and covered the outside with patterned paper. The mini book is very sturdy and I think will hold up to me throwing it in my purse for the year. I also think that this would make an awesome gift for coworkers or family and friends. In fact, I've already had some requests for them so I better get busy!"
