Do you enjoy creating small treat holders and gifts? If so, I have a wonderful idea to share with you today, so I hope you’ll join in. It is a mini calendar tutorial and small desk organizer, and it doesn’t even require any stamping. Isn’t this cute?
I received one of these organizers last fall at Stampin Up’s OnStage Convention, and I’ve had it on display at my craft retreat since then. Recently I had someone ask for a tutorial to make it, so I here is my tutorial!
- 1 ¾” x 9 ¼” Poppy Parade cardstock
- Two of the largest Stitched Nested Labels die cuts in Poppy Parade
- One of the second largest Stitched Nested Labels die cuts in Bumblebee
- One of the third largest Stitched Nested Labels die cuts using Flowers For Every Season designer series paper
- 3 ¼” x 7” Poppy Parade cardstock
- ¾” x 3 ¼” Bumblebee cardstock
- ½” x 3 ¼” Flowers For Every Season designer paper
The easiest way to learn to make these is to watch along with my tutorial video. If you prefer to read along, I’ve included written instructions below.
Attach designer paper to the Bumblebee die cut, and attach both to one of the Poppy Parade pieces.
Score the 1 ¾” x 9 ¼” cardstock according to the following. With the cardstock laying horizontally, score at 1 ½”, 3”, 6 ¼”, and 7 ¾”. Turn the cardstock vertically and score at ½” and 1 1/4″.
Punch a ½” hole in the center of one end section. This will be the hole for the pencil.
Fold the cardstock on all score lines. Trim small slits along the score lines in the outer 1/3 of the strip. Adhere this piece to the back of the large die cuts.
Fold the large cardstock in half. Place adhesive inside to adhere it together. Attach paper strips at the top, and a mini calendar at the bottom.
I hope you enjoyed today’s mini calendar tutorial. These make such adorable gifts, and you can put them together quickly and easily. Happy crafting!
