Each year, we put together a design to inspire you.. last year we made a shadow-box style calendar.. and this year we are using *mini envelopes* !!
To make the calendar, you will need:
One large sheet Mi Tients Red Paper (19 3/4" x 25 1/2")
One piece of Poster Board
25 Mini Envelopes
Little tags or labels
The Ultimate Glue and/or Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive
Crystal Drops (1 or 2 colors)
3-5 colors of cardstock to go inside the envelopes
Stickers or other items to put in envelopes
Poster Board - 20 3/4" x 26 1/2"
Red Mi Tients - 19 3/4" x 25 1/2"
I generally use an X-acto Knife and a ruler to cut the Poster Board.. but if you don't have those things, using a ruler, pencil, and a pair of scissors will also work.
You will need 25 squares that measure 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".
These will be the little notes that go inside each envelope.
We chose a few different shades of green and red cardstock..
Take note that she used one of our Star-Shaped Ribbons to add the star on the top!! LOVE IT!!
I found that 7" from the bottom left corner was a good place to lay down my first envelope. I made sure to do the *same thing* from the right corner.
*If you don't have a die-cut machine to make these, we have a basic tag shape in our STORE die-cut machine that customers are welcome to use*
*You can use a pencil first and then trace over it with the Crystal Drops* if you don't think you can do it free-hand!
Using The Ultimate Glue again, we put the Greenery on the upper 2 corners of the Red Mi Tients Paper
We used the Removable Glue Dots to put little things on the paper note cards inside each envelope..
You can add stickers, coins, even a small piece of candy!! The possibilities are endless!!
