I'm excited to share today's project with you! The idea comes from when I first joined Stampin' Up! (over 12 years ago) and acrylic photo frame desktop note pads were all the rage. I thought it would be a perfect vehicle to hold a One Great Year Paper Pumpkin kit calendar, but in a different way. Take a look...
So fun, right?! Plus - super quick and easy to put together. You'll need a 4" x 6" acrylic horizontal photo frame, which I found at a dollar store. Just slide in one of the calendar base sheets from the kit and decorate away!
The gold metal clip is from a past Paper Pumpkin kit...Filled with Love (the refill kit is still available). Be sure to watch the How'd She DO That? video below for tips on attaching the calendar to the frame.
I made a few of these for family and friends, and wanted a box to put them in. So I came up with a simple gift box.
The frame fits in the box nicely with room to place the calendar pages in separately. They are easy to take on and off, as shown in the video. The video below does include a demonstration on how to make the gift box and more.
