So I saw this cute gift idea the other day and I loved it! I decided to make one for my mom, sister, and sister-in-law for Christmas. My mom has a lot of grandkids’ birthdays to keep track of so I thought this might come in handy. Here’s my version:
Papers, stickers, and die cuts are Jillibean Soup; Scallop rotary cutter is We R Memory Keepers; stitched scallop border maker is Creative Memories; Cinch binding machine is We R Memory Keepers; buttons are Basic Grey and Creative Cafe.
So rather than use the clipboard, I decided to create covers using chipboard packaging I had saved and I bound them with my Cinch machine. That way they can keep the calendars in a purse, or a drawer, or whatever. And if you don’t have a binding machine, the copy center at your local office supply store will do it for cheap. It was super easy and I made three in one evening.
P.S. I shared a shoe-lace ribbon sewing technique on the Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine blog yesterday. Click here if you’d like to see the post with full instructions and step-out photos.
