To create the base, I cut a piece of chipboard at 8x12". I scored it at 4 1/2" and 7 1/2" and covered the inside AND outside with black and white paper from the Black Currant Stack from DCWV. I then took my Cinch and punched holes on both of the 8" side using the machine instructions.
To create the small pieces, I cut 9 strips of 4 x8" chipboard and punched them on one of their 8" sides, pulling pegs 4, 8 and 12. I then cut them into 2 x 4" strips. I did the same with the paper and adhered the cut strips to the cardstock strips.
I organized the strips in to corresponding piles and stamped them. I bound the whole thing with my Cinch and VOILA! A calendar I can use year after year.
These would make great gifts for someone in your office or family, and they are so easy to make! Here's a video walking you through it:
Have a great week everyone!
