Christmas Crafting: Little Desk Calendars





Here's an easy and fun little crafting project/gift idea for friends and family who have desk jobs. I created this using 4x6 photos or cardstock/paper cut to that size. I use a lot of wallet-sized photos in my scrapbooking and so had extras to use on these calendars. It's also a good way to use up scraps of patterned paper. I searched google images for free downloads of 2009 calendars, printed them out, and added them to the pages. I did glue cardstock to the back of the full-size photos for extra stability. And, rather than bind the pages together, I chose to leave them loose to sit on these cute little easels I found at Michael's for $4. These would also be nice using family photos. How are your craft projects coming along?

I love this idea! I think this is what I'll have my boys make for their grandfather for a gift. I am going to get some beads for them to make something for grandma too. Thanks for the lovely ideas!
