DIY Family Calendar

Welcome May Arts fans, Jenifer here with you today to share my 2015 calendars.  I make these every year for the Grandparents and myself so I make 5 of them.  They are similar but I also have to keep them fairly simple to get them all done.  I make them 8×8 so that at the end of the year they can take out the coils and put them directly into albums.  Bonus.

DIY Family Calendar

Simple Cover:  NX04 Stitched Center Ribbon in blue.  Cut a 6″ piece and pull the center thread and tie it in a knot and you get these fun ruffle clusters.  Spellbinders die, doily and beads.

I hope you have enjoyed my calendar today and have given you a little bit of inspiration on how you can used up some of those beautiful ribbons you have in your stash. What I would really like to say is that the adhesive ribbons are wonderful!! They save me so much time and I don’t have to worry about them falling off.
