A CALENDAR... IS FOREVER
Let's face it...
all of us, at least once, have navigated the river of Pinterest ideas and found ourselves pinning a thousand ideas. Here I raise my hand and I am consciously proud of it!
For this project I really took inspiration from there and I customized it with the material available to me... and what material! Let's start with the fantastic plate of *Calendar* stamps: the style of the characters is beautiful, of the right size and informal, just like for the *Funny Alphabet* die that I used for the title punching in black crepla rubber.
The calendar structure is very simple: just punch two tubes frames with the *Happy Frame XL* die for the base, using the system that I showed in the video https://youtu.be/1eDu_WM4WU to lengthen them to the necessary length!
I cut a rectangle from the *Cartoncino Vegetale 1.5mm* and glue it over the *Woodstock Betulla* sheet previously stamped with all the numbers using the *Calendar* plate (I strongly recommend using the Stamping Board!). At the end I used a cutter and made a slit 2-3 mm wide and punched 12 holes of the months with the crop-a-dile, then I inserted small eyelets.
From the patterned paper n ° 7 of the *Wood Effect* collection, I cut a rectangle with the *Dashing Rectangles* and I stamp the grid that is in the clear stamps "Calendar". I stamp the letters one by one to compose a part of the word of the week in the appropriate boxes, then or with the cutter or with the Silhouette or with a small rectangular die (I was very lucky to find one, exactly the size I needed forgotten in the bottom of a drawer!) I get the little windows!
To make the grid slip back and forth in the slot, I glued a piece of cardboard folded on the back to form a tongue to insert into the slot and finally I glued a tube frame obtained with the Happy Frame die on the tongue that protrudes at the back to keep it fixed.
At the end of all the work, I put it up and unfortunately the weight of the structure was too heavy for the base I had created. No panic!
Just insert something heavy in the tube frame like a bag of pebbles or rice, or an iron bar in short, something that can balance the weight!
Hoping to have inspired you again with this idea, see you the next time!
