Hi there! Just one more day until we wave goodbye to 2014 and welcome a new year, so I thought a 2015 calendar would be a perfect way to wrap up my Waffle Flower posts for this year!
I started by die cutting 12 tags from Surface - Tag Die - Starter Kit. Calendars are something that get pulled out a lot, so I used the sturdiest cardstock I had to make sure the tags don't worn out too fast.
Once I had the base tags, I went to town stamping! The months and calendar numbers come from Calendar stamp set. The colored strip where I stamped each month was done by inking and stamping the back of one of the many rectangle blocks from Planner:Stay Focused stamp set (you know, those blocks that say "work", "focus", "personal" "to do", etc...)
Once the months and numbers were stamped, I added the pattern using the tiny triangles strip that comes in Tribal Thank You stamp set. I've been itching to use that lovely pattern since I first saw the set and I thought it was perfect for this project! It was a lot of fun playing with different color combos for each month :)
Here are all the months displayed. Light was terrible when I took the photos, sorry about that!
Of course, this calendar needed some packaging...
I added two white eyelets to the muslin bag and tied the tags with baker's twine.
There's a fun little detail at the back of the bag. I gold heat embossed the sentiment square from 100% Love stamp set. It doesn't show bery good in the pic, but you get the idea...
And that wraps today's post! I wish you all a wonderful 2015 filled with love, health, joy, laughter and all things crafty. Oh, and don't forget to check on the Waffle Flower Blog on January 1, because there's an amazing new release on the way!
