January is Coming!

The new year will be here before 'ya know it. Are you ready? I am! I'm so excited to see what 2013 will bring!

And on my desk, I'm so happy to have this darling little calendar. The thing just makes me smile. It's the December Bright Lights, Big City Stamper's Project. Here's our project in the making . . .

Sand the wood blocks.

Paint. (We did one in black, and one in white.)

Prepare all of the matted panels and the envelope binding strip.

Glue the envies together.

Cool. Envelope fan.

Wrap the envies in the binding strip.

Decorate the blocks however you like.

Attach the envelopes.

Attach the binder clip with a magnet.

Prep the calendar tags. 

Slide the calendar tags into the envies.

Interchange the front tag every month. The magnetic clip makes it easy!

Side view. Cute, eh? I've got some more tag decorating to do . . .

Of course the project comes with enough supplies to make two complete desktop calendars and complete step by step instructions. Can't wait to see your version(s)!

Thanks for stopping by!
