Mini Calendar by Christine

When Christine Meyer wants to make a crafty gift, she often thinks "Mini Calendar"!  They  are perfect to make for little gifts for the  holiday season!  Never too early to get started!  Here's Christine's Mini Calendar that hangs in a frame and is perfect to set on a desk.

This project is a quick and easy one!  Christine used some ready made tags as the base for each month.   The tags came in a variety of colors and since she loves color she went with that!  But you could just as easily do it with all white tags or black or kraft and make it less bright!  The Wafer Thin Die for the Decorative Calendar made cutting out the Decorative Calendars fast!  She cut out a simple patterned paper and put that on each tag.  She then used the metal die cut to cut out the calendar stickers and mounted those to the white cardstock.  Christine added those to the center.  Once they were done she added them to a jump ring.

Remove the glass part out of this standing frame and then put the jump ring at the top so the tags were hanging down and can be flipped over for each new month.

To add some variety Christine used different sticker stitches throughout, both black and white.

We can't wait to see what you'll create using our new 2017 Mini Calendars!
