Today's project is using the calendar block file in the Fun with Blocks template file and Envelope Template Set using the scallop envelope.
I think each day, I end up with a new favorite of the blocks! I have several ideas of using this particular calendar block file and you will be seeing more of them in the weeks/months to come. I'm thinking this would make great Christmas gifts too.
I enlarged the numbers a little bit to be 2" tall. The file comes with them being 1.5", but since I didn't add a background decorative piece, I decided to make the numbers a little bit larger. To make the numbers on the block work for a calendar, you need to put 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 on one block and 0, 1, 2, 4, 7, 8 on the other.
The months were printed in MSWord and mounted on a heavy cardstock and cut out. They adhere to the front with 1/2 of a Tombow Fastener Tab. (months do come with the file, but I wanted to do them a bit differently and have them a certain size) I haven't done it yet, but I am going to cover the fronts of the months with clear contact paper to protect them.
All of the numbers are adhered to heavy cardstock with Mono Adhesive Dots and then adhered to the block with the same adhesive. The blocks and calendar frame are all put together using the new Xtreme adhesive.
I knew I wanted a way to keep all the months with the calendar blocks, so I created an envelope using the Envelope Template Set, adhered it to the back with Xtreme adhesive and put the other months not in use in there.
