I have been wanting to work on a calendar project for awhile now, and when I saw this calendar frame project, I was inspired! I went to Target to look for some frames so I could make one of my own. Target didn't have the type of frames I was looking for, for what I wanted to spend (under $5 per frame). So I was walking out of the store and happened to walk past the $1 spot, and saw these cute little flip frames. Yes, for only $1!! I bought one and brought it home, and got to work on my own calendar. The dimensions of the inserts for the frame are 3"x3". I typed and printed the calendar pages in Excel. I went to work embossing 12 little images for each month. The best part of this project is, I made it entirely with my Lasting Impressions scraps!! No new sheets of paper were harmed in making this project! You don't know what a big deal that is for me, I have issues with keeping scraps around. I put January & February pages back to back, so once January is over, I can flip the calendar and display the February pages. I will say I had to keep the paper I used to 1-2 layers in order to get them to fit in the photo frames. I love how this project turned out. Afterwards, I went back to Target and bought the rest of the frames that they had for sale. I am thinking they would make nice affordable Christmas gifts next year. Hope you have a great weekend!
