Project - Hanging Calendar

This is an easy project for a FUNshop, open house or if you are making items to sell at a craft fair. I created this hanging calendar for a craft fair...only had this one left.  It is sure to brighten up an office.

The DCWV Brights Chipboard Stack is already covered with textured cardstock - doesn't get much easier than that!  You can distress it - I did not on this one.  I used a large glue dot to secure the back of the clip, so it doubles as a mini clipboard for notes and dates to remember during the month.

I used a Crop-a-dile to punch the holes and crimp the eyelets in the corners of the chipboard. The white wire is craft wire which you can find in the floral department of your local craft store. I twisted it around a pencil to make the loops. I made some with beads on the wire between the loops [note to self those were the first to sell at the craft fair].

At each end, I twisted the wire around the shaft of a very small phillips screw driver. Don't forget to turn in the sharp end in or bend it over on itself.

Thanks for stopping by...

Abundant Blessings
