Waaaay back in January I taught a class at Erina Scrapbook Store where we created a perpetual desk calendar. Here it is:
There is a separate card for each month, and the idea is to record birthdays, anniversaries, and other events on the front of it so that you don't forget to send a card or a gift. Once you've made a card for the occasion, you file it behind the month card, ready for when you need it!
I adapted a business card holder tutorial I saw on Splitcoast Stampers to create this much larger desk calendar - the month cards measure 4.5x6.5".
To decorate the month cards I used stamped from 7Gypsies, bazzill cardstock, pink and white polka dot ribbon, and images from the Darkroom Door Viva la Flora Montage Sheet.
Here is what each page looks like:
The back of each page has a notes section where you can write any important info about the occasion, or the people you are making the card for. (i.e - "Aunty Pearl doesn't like the colour purple" etc).
This would be a great project to make for an end of year teacher's gift, or for your mum or grandmother who may have lots of children's / grandchildren's birthdays to keep track of!
Thanks for dropping by!
