I do have a fun project. What do you get when you pair up the letter "H", a plaque, a dowel and some office badges? You get a calendar!! Bear with me, this will all make sense. Promise! I started when I saw these badges below at Office Max. I just knew that I could do something fun with them. When Flourishes came out with it's 2011 Calendar download, the wheels started spinning. So... I started with these!
While those wheels were spinning, I saw in my head a kind of hanging calendar holder. I asked hubby to help. We took a trip to Hobby Lobby and picked up these things!
found HERE and paired it up with Flourishes A Year of Flowers 1. I've only made the first four months of this calendar but I know I'll use A Year of Flowers 2 and A Year of Flowers 3 to finish it up. I should mention, I used Adobe Elements to reduce the size of the calendar to fit inthe 2.5 by 3.5" holder.
Copic Markers and I also used one of the swirls from the Siberian Iris Set to stamp in the corners and then edged with a silver leaf pen.
And, to give the end of the dowels a little pizazz... just add a big rhinestone! :-)
HERE to see some gorgeous calendar creations by Dawn and a very special guest! Some of the other Flourishes gals also were inspired. So, hop on over and see...
