Glue the above together and you have a nice calendar.
I will be making the rest of the calendar's for the year and will bind them together. I will post the finished project when I have completed it.
You can make your calendar's larger or smaller, depending on where you will be placing your calendar. I have my calendar's on my desk and it is the perfect size for me. This cartridge has a lot of embellishments you can use for other projects and to make a calendar is really easy. There is a lot of gluing little pieces together, so I use my Zig 2-way glue with the chisel tip. I also discovered that I like the background paper showing through the calendar versus a plain colored sheet of cardstock.
Have fun making your own calendar's with your own creativity!
