Make & Take from Downline Meeting

I provided a make & take project for everyone. It was a 4-sided 2009 desktop calendar (similar to the one Melissa Davies gave me for Christmas). But since the Season of Friendship stamp set is no longer going to be available, I wanted to use a current set.

For all sides I used:
A Flower for All Seasons stamp set, Basic Black Classic Ink, Big Shot & Top Note Die, Jumbo Pewter Eyelets, Crop-A-Dile, Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon, Sahara Sand & Whisper White Cardstock














Winter:

Paper: Real Red, Not Quite Navy, Ski Slope DSP
Ink: Baja Breeze & Real Red (for watercoloring)
Access: Aqua Painter, Markers: Garden Green & YoYo Yellow; 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon















Spring:

Paper: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery DSP Prints
Access: Markers: Creamy Caramel, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery; 5/8" Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon















Summer:

Paper: Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Rainbow Sherbert DSP
Access: Markers: Green Galore, Going Gray, Apricot Appeal; 5/8" Celery Grosgrain Ribbon















Fall:

Paper: Really Rust, More Mustard, Close to Cocoa, Haiku DSP
Access: Markers: Really Rust, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa; 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon

The calendars were printed from www.printfree.com/yearly calendar. Reduce to 80% to fit on the card front.

All sides are assembled first, then cut the Sahara Sand cardstock to 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", this will serve as the base for which all fronts will be adhered to. Use Sticky Strip across the top only of each side and use Snail adhesive on the other three sides. Leave 1/4" space on the bottom to have enough room for the holes that the ribbon goes through.

Use the first six months, then untie the ribbon and flip it over, retie the ribbon and enjoy the next six months.

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!
