Well school has finally started here in Massachusetts. I have so many friends that are teachers, they are all back full swing, meeting their new students and waking up so early!! I was thinking of them when I created this cute little perpetual calendar. I though it would be fun to put on their desks, and change up each day. Take a peek...
The calendar base is actually a side step card I modified to look like a chalkboard. You can download the card base with easel Silhouette from my blog here. I added a bunch of the icons from the Odds & Ends and the School Supplies Shaped Sprinkles to the right "steps", and then went to work on the calendar.
For the months I cut 1/2" strips of the graph side of the Spelling Bee Paper and added Teensy Type Letters in various colors. They attach to the card base using 3/8" Velcro circles. For the dates I cut 3/4" x 1 1/2" pieces of the loose leaf paper side of the School Days Paper and added Skinny Type letters in Blue Jean. They clip to the calendar using a mini clothespin which I glued on using glossy accents for extra strength.
To hold all of the month and number pieces I added a little pocket to the back of the card base. I thought this would be a great way to brighten a teacher's day! Have you created anything using the School Days Collection? Be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook & Instagram, we would love to see your creations!
That's all for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
