Berry Delight Desk Calendar

 Hi Everyone,






Today I am hopping with the Ink Stamp Share Group and I am making a little desk calendar that would make a great customer gift or craft fair make. They take very minimal amounts of card and dsp and are really quick and easy to make. Let me show you how I made this one.

Materials

1 piece of pacific point card stock 7" x 3 1/2", 1 piece 3 1/2" square and 1 piece 3" x 2" and a scrap for the sentiment mat
2 pieces of contrasting designer series papers 3 3/8" square
Scrap of whisper white for the sentiment
Pacific point ink
Double oval punch
Trimmer
Simply scored
Bone folder
Quite Curvy stamp set
Multipurpose adhesive
Dimensionals
Mini calendar (easily acquired online or in craft shops)

Instructions

On the long side, score the long piece of pacific point card at 1 3/4" and 3 1/2", fold and burnish the score lines by folding in half and then folding the front piece in half again to form the rest for the easel to lean against.

Adhere one piece of dsp to the base of the holder and then the other one to the 3 1/2" square of pacific point.

Adhere the calendar to the remaining piece of pacific point and then fix to the base of the holder using dimensionals - this will act as the stopper for the easel to rest behind.

Adhere the bottom half of the 3 1/2" square piece to the front of the folded over portion of the base.

Stamp a sentiment on the scrap of whisper white and punch out with the oval punch and then layer this on the scalloped pacific point punch out.  Add to the centre of the easel with dimensionals.

There you are, a quick and easy gift or craft fair make, I hope that you like it.
