 Desk Calendar Tutorial Although almost everyone has a digital calendar nowadays I still find it handy to have a “real” calendar on my desk and so I made this one. Let me share with you how I made it: Find a printable calendar on the internet and print on a A4 sized sheet (I used the “Linen” sheet (11859)). Make sure you choose a calendar with three rows like this one from “http://annystudio.com/calendars/”. Cut in three rows (2” x 9,5”): Take a piece of cardstock (9.5” x 12”) and score in three places (every three inches), so you have... Continue reading
