Mini Desk Calendar by Roberta


A special welcome to Roberta Rosi from Milan, Italy who brings a special style to our design team.  Italians are famous for their sense of design and Roberta is no exception! 

Roberta is getting started early on creating calendars for Christmas gifts.  Her mini desk calendar is made using a 4" x 6" plexiglass photo frame.  What a perfect base for this project!  These frames are easy to find and inexpensive.


Want to make this calendar?  Roberta shows you how.  First she cut a 4" x 6" rectangle out of the clouds paper. 


She then cut 2 green strips 4" x 1/2", placed them top and bottom, added some Sticker Stitches and put the completed piece into the frame.  Fun!


Roberta then cut 12 rectangles 2 1/2" x 3" for the 12 months of the year.  On the 12 rectangles she put the clear stickers of the 12 months from the 2014 Mini Calendar Standard.  She put 6 months on the yellow side of the paper and 6 months on the green side.  Roberta has a special tool to perforate the months making them easy to tear off.  


Roberta put together the 12 months with a staple and covered it with a folded patterned paper strip.


To finish off her gift calendar, Roberta mounted the completed mini calendar months to the front of her plexiglass frame and added a 2014 sticker from SRM's 2014 Year of Memories.  Roberta topped it all off with some Maraschino Twine.  Perfection!  Grazie mille Roberta for this beautiful project.  You have given us lots of inspiration!  


Have a great weekend and be sure to come back and see us on Monday for another week of inspiration from our fabulous design team members.
