Easel Calendars

Hi!

During January I made a few Easel Calendars as class samples.  My daughter saw my two samples after the class and instantly claimed them - one for her and one for her bestie.  I guess that's just as good as a seal of approval!


I used the DSP from the Painted Blooms pack to provide a background for the gorgeous butterfly.


Even with the Post-It Note pad, the calendars fold down flattish so that they could be posted if necessary.


Here are the two samples side by side.  I didn't have enough of either paper for the whole class to make the same calendar, so they got a choice between the two.  I can't decide which one is my favourite!

Bye for now,

Tina


EDITED TO ADD INSTRUCTIONS: I've had a few recent requests for instructions. They are pretty simple to make, I just made an easel card at a regular card size. This will vary depending on where you live in the world! You can find a tutorial on making Easel Cards here, just adjust the base cardstock to be half of an A4 sheet, and the front to be a quarter of an A4 sheet.
