New Year, New Calendar

Who doesn't love a new calendar? I have an obsession of sorts with calendars. My husband teases me because every three months or so, I "need" a new calendar. With it the start of a new year, I wanted a new calendar for my office. So, tonight, this is what I came up with...
I absolutely LOVE the colors! I made the calendar using a 11x14 piece of metal as the base, and built up from there.

The flowers have a 3-D effect on the side.


The months can be changed out with the magnets.


I put an envelope on the back of the calendar that will hold the months when not in use. I plan on saving the "used" months as a type of a journal.


I will hang the calendar on the wall using the ribbon I strung through the top. I also plan on changing out the picture every month. I am very happy with how this calendar turned out!

  1. LOVE the calendar idea, Irene! I love how you can keep the calendar as a type of journal too. I always save old calendars. The colors are wonderful and I love the touches with the buttons and ribbon! Where would you get the metal backing? I've never done anything like that before.
