Crafty Calendars

Posted on: January 8, 2010

Happy New Year!

With a new year comes a new calendar. A couple of years back for Christmas I made my siblings some really fun calendars by using the pocket calendars that you get at Hobby Lobby, Michaels or the Dollar Store.

Making the calendars more your style is fun and easy with the use of some glue or sticky tape, paper and embellishments.

Things you need:

Pocket calendar with plastic cover

double sided tape or craft glue stick Extra Strength

scrapbook paper

scissors

pencil

embellishments – stickers, letters, quotes, etc…

Instructions:

First you need to remove the plastic covering from the calendar.

Next take a sheet of your favorite paper and trace the cover on the unprinted side of your paper. Cut along the pattern you just made.

Lay your calendar out (shown here) and use two sided tape (shown here) or a craft glue stick to apply your paper to the cover.

Line your paper up to the edge of the calendar and smooth is out as you apply it.

Next use stickers, papers or any embellishments to make your calendar more personal.

Then after your project is finished place the calendar back into the plastic cover.

This project can also be done to make the cover of a journal, address book, daily planner or any book that you want to make more special.
