Desk Calendar Gift…

Today’s post is another project made for this month’s craft show.  Another piece I have no idea what to charge.  Approximately $4.50 in materials and not too time consuming to make either.

These desk calendars (there are several in different DSP) were shown to some of my peeps today at class.  This seemed to be a popular item.  Any suggestions on price?

If they don’t sell well, there are several on my list I know would put these to good use…


The Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper really makes this piece…love!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits just in case you have a craft show and need an inexpensive gift item that is actually useful…


  • Paper:  Petals & Paisleys DSP, Mint Macaron Cardstock and Copper Foil
  • Ink:  None
  • Stamps:  Falling Flowers
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  May Flowers Framelits, 2017 calendar, 3″ x 3″ Post It Note, Bic Pen, 5″ x 7″ Acrylic Photo Frame


  • The background DSP is 5″ x 7″.  The horizontal DSP layr is 1-1/2″ x 7″.  Slide this into acrylic frame.
  • The pen cover is 5″ x 1-1/2″ hot glued to pen.  The holder is 1-1/2″ x 2-1/2″.  Glue together leaving enough room for pen to slide in.  Glue to back of background with multipurpose glue.  It looks much more finished if the pen holder paper matches the back of the background paper.


  • Glue 3″ x 3″ Post It note to left side with hot glue.
  • Glue 2-1/4″ x 3″ calendar to right side centered in space.
  • Stamp three sets of  leaves in Mint Macaron on Mint Macaron Cardstock.  Cut out with framelits.  Glue with hot glue to top center of acrylic frame.
  • Cut one Copper Foil flower with framelit and hot glue over center of leaves.
  • Cut two flowers from DSP.  Break down fibers and curl edges with bone folder.  Attach with dimensional.
  • Cut one flower center from DSP and attach with dimensional.

Here’s what it looks like all packaged…
