My wonderful new calendar

Now I know we are already half way into the year but I just had to make this.

I was sorting out a box I had still put off since moving to China and inside was our Perpetual Calendar from last year. We had purchased it from one of my favourite shops Muji. It was nothing like the one I’ve made but it did flip over and inspired me.

The great thing about this is there is no year on it so I can use it year after year until i’m bored and want to make another one, I’ve also made it so it  folds flat, making it great to give to someone as a gift….(oh! and its dead easy to make.)

For this great project you will need…

11.5/8 X 8.1/4 Black card

Score along 8.1/4 side at 4 & 8

4.1/4 x 11.5/8 Black card

Score along 4.1/4 side at 2 & 4

3.5/8 x 11.1/4 Pink card

Die cut 26 2.5/8 x 2.5/8 black squares

Die cut 26 2.1/4 x 2.1/4 white squares

4 metal rings 7/8 in diameter, I purchased mine from Walmart for just over $1

My number stamps are Docrafts Carnival stamps

I coloured them in with my Winsor & Newton pens Cerise & Lime green.

Check out my video below for full tutorial.

 

This is now sitting proudly on my shelf and used every single day.

    1. Hi Sarah, I’m sorry but I don’t have the time to write step by step instructions which is why I just write down the measurements needed and attach the video. If you just watch it once and prep your measurements as I’ve listed then you will be good to go. Regards Sam.
