These adorable calendars are so easy to make! Fill them with goodies to Boo your neighbors and Merrily delight your friends. You'll need to gather a few supplies:
- 2 pieces of 8-1/2" x 11" card stock
- Tear & Tape Adhesive
- Large Numbers Framelits & Big Shot
- White Gift Boxes
- Patterned Paper, Stamps, and Embellishments
STEP ONE: Cut card stock to 6-1/2" x 8-1/2" and score as shown
STEP TWO: Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive
STEP THREE: Cut card stock to 6-1/2" x 11" and score
STEP FOUR: Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive
STEP FIVE: Make sure all scored lines fold easily and assemble stand.
STEP SIX: Decorated numbered boxes
Assemble 2 White Gift Boxes. I cut patterned paper into 2-3/4" squares and adhered the paper to all six sides. Then use the Big Shot and Large Numbers Framelits to cut numbers. It doesn't really matter which side you put them on, but you do need to put specific numbers on each box. Use the guide below.
STEP SEVEN: Decorate the Stand
I cut patterned paper to 3/4" x 6-1-/2" and 4-1/4" x 6-1/4" to embellish the stand. You can add stamps and die-cuts as well.
And there you have it! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Share your creations in the comments section.
