This calendar I actually saw in Anthropologie a couple of years ago. I still love how a simple block of wood is the stand for the calendar cards and a pencil. I think great inspiration if you are so inclined to make your own.

Love the concept of this calendar which is really more like a journal. An index card for everyday of the year is divided by postcards for each month. Everyday you are to write something that happened that day. This is repeated each year. So fun and interesting after the first year so see what you had done on the same day in previous years.

Last year we made this desktop calendar as our make and take at the 7gypsies booth at CHA.
For those of you that don't get to attend CHA we thought you might enjoy making this fun calendar.
Here's what your going to need: (all products except tack from 7gypsies)
seam binding ribbon
Avignon - diagram paper
round photo turn
arrow photo turn
venice clear stamp (not pictured)
victoria decorative brad (not pictured)
tack (not pictured)
1" square book board piece (not pictured)
Email us at email@example.com to get your calendar pages. Copy onto creme colored cardstock. Cut apart leaving leaving 1/4" around bottom and sides and 3/8" edge on top.
Thoroughly cover the backs of the autograph book covers with glue stick and attach diagram paper.
Trim and sand edges
Glue 1” square piece of book board behind the center of the large A on back side of front cover.
With your thumb push tack into front cover in the center of the large “A”. Lightly hammer tack 3 times until it starts to go through second board.
NOTE: If tack doesn’t stay, pull tack out and put a dot of glue in hole and reinsert tack. Let dry.
PUNCHING - covers:
Punch center top of both front and back pieces making sure the cover is pushed all the way to the back of binderie punch.
Punch hole in center of calendar cards approximately 3/8" from top edge.
Stamp the calendar pages with the clock face from the Venice clear stamp.
Stamp the clock face a couple of times on each page with the image going off the page.
We stamped with Ranger Distress Ink - Tattered Straw
Cut back off brad and attach with glossy accents to round photo turn and set aside to dry
Take at least five links off of the end of the chain dangle and reattach link to the top ring so you have 2 chains dangling. Attach arrow photo turn and round photo turn dangles to chain with needle nose pliers.
That's it....pretty simple.
Happy New Year!
