Star Photo Calendar ***********************

 My upline, Angela Tutton, showed us how to make this Star Photo Calendar at our January Unit Meeting. She originally saw this cute idea on Pinterest and had to give it a try. It took her a while to create the calendar on MS Publisher, but I think it turned out beautiful. Thank you Angela, we loved the project!  


12 of your favorite photos or pictures representing different months of the year. We will cut these to approx 2 ½” x 2 ½”.
(3) 6” x 12” pieces of Chocolate Cardstock
From the Chantilly Packet (X7163B): (or you can use other papers that go with Twilight)
(2) 2 3/4" x 5 3/4" Buttercup Cardstock
(2) 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" B&T Large Design Paper from Chantilly
Paper Trimmer
Scoring tools (Paper trimmer with scoring blades, Scor-It, ScorPal, etc)
Bone Folder
18" Ribbon (or other coordinating ribbon)
LOTS of Tombow Adhesive
Rhinestone Designer Brads (or other coordinating bling)
Paper Flowers
Slate Ink Pad
Bamboo Ink Pad
Foam Tape
12 Printed Calendars on retired papers that co-ordinate with the front cover papers
2013 cut on Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge
Take 3 6"x 6" pieces of cardstock and score them every 3 inches
Accordion fold the pieces
Place all three pieces in front of you so they resemble three "M's" and glue together like this  .
The ribbon is secured under the layers of cardstock that are on the front and back.  Decorate front and back as shown. 
Print the calendar on Backround and texture papers.  I used a variety of retired papers, a great way to use up older papers. Place calendars on inside so months follow one another. You can find the link to the  CALENDAR. here.
I have not attached pictures as yet, but they will adhere directly above the calendars on the pages.
