Do you ever sit at the table in your creative corner and fail to finish anything satisfying? Well, a few times, after hours of trying and waste of paper because the project I have in mind doesn’t come out as I would like, to unlock this impasse creativity, I go to retrieve old ideas and readjust them, I modify and create giving new measures, new colors and functionality.
I made a box with an opening at the bottom to insert the "drawer" that contains the calendar. To embellish it and cover the front, I made a card as big as the base structure using the same patterned paper, from the *Forever Green* collection, which I love!
Then I simply die cut twice the words *Buon Natale*, once with white creped rubber and the second with white cardboard. I glued them together to get a more three-dimensional result, then I placed them at the bottom right of the card and to finish I embellished with enamel dots. Clean and simple, as I like it!
I built the "drawer" with the green patterned paper from the *Forever Green* collection and I created two compartments by putting a strip as a separator. In the upper part I inserted the seven parallelepipeds, previously stamped with the *Calendar* stamp, and at the top I inserted a cut-out plank with the *Happy Frame*, also this previously stamped with the first three letters to compose the day of the week. In the compartment below, instead, I inserted 6 sheets folded in half, where on each side I pasted the letters, to form the names of the months, die-cut in black cardboard with the *Funny Alphabet*.
To keep the calendar standing upright, just fold the box back and insert the drawer at the bottom. Changing the month tags and the 7 parallelepipeds based on the month, that’s it!
Always hoping to give you ideas for your projects, I take this opportunity to wish you a peaceful Christmas.
