My Perpetual Calendar

Hi, I love small desk calendars, but hate buying one every year.  I love my Cricut, and got some coasters from a local restaurant and thought, I can do this!  So with the help of stuff from my stash, and my Storybook cartridge I made this sweet little Calendar!

For the recipe ... I used 2 4x4 inch coasters that I covered with paper from DCWV  "Flower Power Spring Pack", what pretty paper! The letters and numbers were all cut using the Storybook cartridge.  Each month is done in a different color, to reflect the month.  The letters are cut in black to help me see them quickly!
The binding was done with my Bind It All and the wire is 3/4 inch white. Decorations... I hit the stash and found flowers, bling, jewels and used some Stickles... because everything is better with Stickles!

Here's a shot from the side. I have seen online may calendars with 2 more sets of Owires to act as a base... but I like this.  I used ribbon that was 2 1/2 inches and attached with some of the best glue around Its called Fabri-Tac.  It stands without problems and is very quick drying.

I am currently working on a mini vacation album... when I get a little further on with it I will post pictures!

Hope you are staying cool.. It is hotter than hot here!  Type soon!!!
