Altered Calendars

I am so not ready for Christmas this year! Although I do have all my shopping done (yesterday!), my to-do list is endless. I have a few homemade gifts left to do, and here is one I thought to share with you.

Need a last minute gift idea? This is so easy! I just took a store-bought pocket calendar, pulled it out of the plastic covering, cut a piece of DP to fit over the front and the back, and embellished away! The numbers are cut using the Cricut, and the flowers and brads are from my stash.


Thanks for looking and happy stamping!

Love this!

I have made a couple of these as well. I put pictures of my sister in law's kids on hers.

I agree, simple and easy gifts.
