Create a fun Calendar shelf

It's time again for another fun project using a really fun product from Gypsy Soul Laser cuts called the "The Memo Board".  With a new year beginning it's a great time to start making fun little calendar projects to keep you up to date with things and keep life running smooth.  Not that it happens with me but I try my best and taking notes on calendars always seems to help me.  So for this I decided to make it a photo stand and a calendar so that I could give it as a gift.

1.To make this project you are going to first glue all the pieces in the Memo Board set together and let them dry.

2. Then you can use a light chalk paint that matches your paper to cover the front and let it dry and then the back and let that dry.  Sand around all the edges to distress them slightly.

3.  Then cut a piece of black paper that measures 8 3/4" x 8 ". Also cut another piece of silver paper that is 8 1/2" x 7 3/4".  On top of that goes that fun silver and aqua leopard paper that measures 8 1/4" x 7 1/2".  Glue them together and attach to the frame with double sided tape or adhesive.

4.  To make the frames use black cardstock and die cut three frames.  Make smaller white rectangles to fit inside for the photos. Attach them to your frame with 3D Foam squares.

5.  Find a calendar that fits and print it in white paper.  Mat each of the months with black paper.  Attach the first month with super sticky adhesive tape or with brads on the side.

6. Finish by adding pearls, ribbon and bling to match.

Here is a closeup of the frames and the calendar.

And here is a pretty photo of the bottom edge of the shelf part.  It's perfect to keep little things that get lost easy in your scrapbook room.

Here is the link again for the Memo Board just in case :)

Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see you back again soon.
