First, I would like to wish everyone a very happy new year. Second, congratulations to all the talented ladies who will be joining the design team. Well, here we are at the begining of a new year so I wanted to share a calendar that I created using the fun goodies from the Party Games kit:
I always like to start the new year off with a new calendar (yes, I know there are calendars for all kinds of media) I like the good old fashioned paper calendar. This calendar is a little different though, it’s for birthdays! You could also create your own simply by cutting cardstock sheets to 4″x12″ and binding at the top. Here are some close up pics so you can see all the super cute embellies from the Party Games kit:
To create the fringe at the top I cut 4 pieces of yellow crepe paper from the kit 2″ wide x 4″ long. I layered them together and stitched down the middle. I used fringe scissors and cut just to the stitching. Then I crumpled it up, straightened it out and fluffed up the layers. Fun! Hope this brings a little inspiration to kick start your new year.
