Calendar matchbook – Stamp club project 1

calendar matchbook A few people must actually read my ramblings because there were some people who wanted to know how these were made!!! We made these last night at stamp club, along with three other cute little gift ideas.  Soooo Cool….so here we go.

1. You will need to purchase the small calendar pads from someone like Educational Experience. They are online and can be googled…….in fact you can get about 25 calendars for just $7.50. They measure just 6.5cm x 5cm

2. Cut a piece of cardstock (we used so saffron) that measures 16cm x 8cm.

3. Measuring along the longest side – score lines at 6.5cm, 7cm and at 15cm.

4. I have stamped months using calendar full upside down and the right way up all across the piece of cardstock using the same coloured ink as the cardstock . This takes any thinking out of the equation……LOL…..

5. Turn the cardstock over and fold up the 1cm strip – this is where the staple goes. Fold the rest of the scored lines up into the wallet.The top edge of the matchbook has a very small 0.5cm spine that allows for the height of the calendar pad.

6. Bring the top over the flap and staple the small piece just below where the large front flap matches up (it doesn’t reach all the way to the bottom, so the flap just stays tucked in……

7. Stick the calendar pad into the centre of the inside back as shown in the photo below.

inside matchbookWe have made ours monchromatic and tied a piece of so saffron ribbon around our so saffron stamped card stock. This is very elegant and subtle. but I have actually made heaps of these and they look great with a rub on placed on the front – even quicker. We will sell these off for $1 at our school fete and should be a great seller I’d say……..

Hope the instructions are clear…if you do have any questions, don’t hesitate to pop them in the comment section.

We will be back with the projects 2, 3 and 4 we made last night!!
