So, let's get hoppin', shall we? Today I've got a quick, easy, fun, and INEXPENSIVE tutorial for you.
This summer calendar was created using 2 sheets of BoBunny's Paradise cut-outs and 1 sheet of combo stickers. How simple is that?
Begin by cutting apart the four squares on one side of the cut-out sheet. These will serve as your facing pages.
Choose one of the four squares as your cover and add your title using the combo stickers. Glue your June page to the back side of this cover.
I stamped my calendar pages, but only because I'm challenging myself to use every stamp set I own (a daunting challenge, to be sure! LOL), but you could just as easily print your calendar pages using your computer. The pages should be 6" x 6". Embellish each of your facing pages as you wish and glue them to the backs of the calendar pages. I also glued the "Bucketful of Memories" square from the cut-out page to the back of the last calendar page to create a back cover.
ETA: Someone asked about the stamp I used for the calendar. It's called Calendar Grid, and it's made by Hampton Art.
Punch holes and bind with ribbons, binder rings, or both. Voila! Add pictures throughout the summer, and you'll have a cute keepsake and a handy place to jot down the dates of all those ball games, swimming lessons, and most importantly (at least for me) - VACATION!!!
