I also made a few of these great Standing Calendars. I ordered the calendar part online and created the background for it. I got this idea from a fellow demo, Petty Wong, in Victoria.
These are very easy to make.
Cardstock 10-1/2 x 5-1/2
Score it at 4-1/4x 5-1/4 and 6-1/4
Designer Series Paper 5-1/4 x 4
Cardstock or Coordinating DSP 5-1/4 x 2
Cardstock to frame calendar
Embellish and decorate as desired
Fold the cardstock on score lines. Punch a slot (I used the retired slot punch) at the top of both sides to tie the ribbon through. Assemble and decorate as desired. Run ribbon through slots and tie in a knot or a bow.
For this one I took a small piece of ribbon and wrapped it around the top through the slot and taped it down at the back. Then I tied a bow and put it on top of the ribbon for something a bit different. I will show you some more over the next few days so you can see the 3 different ribbon treatments I did.
Here are some pictures of one of the calendars from the side so you can see how to fold it.
These fold up and you can fit them right into a regular card size envelope. Depending on how you finish them, they will also mail for the cost of a single stamp.
