Stampin’ Up! Sweet Sayings Card & Envelope desktop calendar

.

As promised, I’m back today to share a sweet little desktop calendar project. This is one of the projects we’re making in my January parties and clubs, and they are heaps of fun to make. Practical, too!

Got any spare mini calendars lying around? If so, you can whip up one of these in under 10 minutes. You can also print out your own mini calendars – there are many options available online.

**I have a few spare kits left over. Read on to find out how you can get one of these ready-to-create kits – including the calendar – for FREE!**

This project uses the card base and envelope from the Sweet Sayings Card & Envelope pack that I shared earlier this week. It even has a pocket at the back for storing all those odds & ends that accumulate on our desks. 😉  Or is it just mine?

Ok, so how do we do it?

Let’s start the clock.

 

1. First up, embellish the card front. It’s much easier to do this now, before we turn it into a stand-up calendar.

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Bright Blossom stamp set on mine, with flowers punched from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. I also added a Pool Party mat behind my calendar and attached bakers twine before hanging it from a mini silver brad.

2. Cut white cardstock to 12.7cm (5 inches) x 6 cm. Score at 1cm, 3cm and 5cm, creating a concertina fold.

Adhere flaps to the inside front and inside back of the card using Sticky Strip, to create a base. This will prevent the card from ‘walking’ (ie. when the front and back move apart). We don’t want our calendar to collapse on us over time!

Adding this base makes the calendar stand up, nice and sturdy. And you can even pop a pen in there!

Here you go, this picture might make it a bit clearer…

3. Ok, now for the pocket.

Choose one of the envelopes that come in the Sweet Sayings Card & Envelope pack.

Remove the flap. We won’t be needing it. 🙂

Now score the remaining three sides at 1cm. Be gentle! Don’t tear the paper.

Put your hand inside the envelope and carefully flatten the sides. Add glue dots to secure the bottom corners underneath.

Now you can attach the pocket to the back of your calendar!
