Desk Calendar

ABCchallenges wants to see some embossing, LadyBugCrafts and Sparkles want anything but a card and InkSpireMe wants something for the New Year!

Here's a 2013 desk calendar I made using the Two Tags Die.

If you'd like to have a go, I've included the template for the monthly inserts at the end of this post. You will need a strip of card approx 9" x 7.5". I scored the card piece at 4.5", then folded it in half and placed it just above the cut line for the large Two Tags Die. If you don't have this, worry not, just use the strip of card as is.
Once you have cut out the shape, fold it back on itself and score another 2 lines 0.5" on either side of this central crease. It should then look like this.
I embossed it for extra interest and added a couple of stamped butterflies. Make sure you slide one of the monthly inserts in before gluing the butterflies down to leave enough room!
A piece of ribbon holds the two top edges together.
Click on the photo below to download the calendar. It prints onto an A4 sheet. Not yet done - will do as soon as I can!
