    Default My latest project, what do you think?

    I'm making these desktop calendars, they will be xmas gifts for family and friends. This is the first one done, I still have to get some photo corners and adhere to the back and front. So what do you think?

    Inside
    Photobucket
    Outside
    Photobucket
    And of course the blank places will be for photos.... the pictures do no justice for the rub-ons, the look better irl.

    Thanks for the comments.... I thought I would add how I made them....
    First off it took for ever to print off a good size for the mini calendar...
    I covered coasters, they are size 4x5, with cardstock, sanded the edges, inked the edges...
    then i attached my patterned paper in the inside.
    Punched holes with my crop-a-dile to attach the hinge... when i attached the hinge with just the brads it was really loose, so I took it apart and added adhesive to the back side of the hinge and that worked alot better... I now feel like it will last a year, lol.
    Then I added the cardstock to the outside to cover the brad prongs.
    The calendar I cut them all to the same size, punched holes and attached brads... I had wondered if the pages would tear off and tried and they would, I just made sure I attached the brads really well so hopefully they wont come out when tearing a month off.
