Let the School Year Begin...

Supplies: Accessories: Computer generated calendar, quickutz crayon die cut, computer generated lines for the crayon box, cardstock, font for calendar CK journaling, calendar case
It's time to get back to work for me, and start the countdown 'til next summer!  To get back into the school frame of mind I made my September calendar into a crayon box.  I used Microsoft word to create the triangle and lines of the crayon box and printed it onto my cardstock with my calendar.  I have recieved some inquiries about how I make my calendars so I am going to post a quick little tutorial here.  First I computer generate the calendar in a text box (size 2.13x3.5) on Microsoft Word, and print it out onto computer paper.

Then I take double sided removable tape and put it on top of the printed calendar.

I cut a piece of cardstock 2 1/8 x 3 1/2 and put it on top of the removable tape.

Then before I print the calendar I go edit my text box to remove the border.  I do this so if I don't line up my cardstock correctly the lines of the text box are not printed on my final project.

Here is what is looks like printed:

And peeled off of the removable tape.

From here you can decorate the calendar. 
I have been trying to find a way to share the calendar that I created online, but haven't been successful.  If you know of a way for me to do this I would love for you to share.  Until then send me an email and I can email you any of the calendars I have created.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful long Labor Day weekend!
