Rolodex turned Birthday Calendar!

I know that I have told you that I am a calendar freak. Every time I turn around I am either buying or making a new calendar of sorts. Well, a couple of years ago, I made a great birthday calendar from a simple rolodex.

This is how the rolodex started life...
And, has ended up like this... 
Super fun & super easy to make! 
Definitely will make any desk more colorful!  
I love all the color that this little birthday calendar brings to my desk. 
I decorated a rolodex card to represent each month. 
January, February, March and April. I know some of the papers, ok, all of the papers are older papers. But, that is the beauty of this project, is that it just takes scraps! 
May, June, July and August 
September, October, November and December 
And then, just take a card to represent everyone in your family and decorate it! How cute is that?! 
Like I said, the calendar definitely makes my white desk have a bit more color!

If interested in getting the rolodex, you can find it HERE
