The sample uses calendar print papers by Karen Foster and Creative Imaginations.

 

Directions:

 

Take each cardstock and score down the middle so that you can fold it in half to make a

4 1/8” x 5 3/8” card. Each “card” will be the background for three different months. Each card needs to be assigned to one month from each set of four months, especially if you are using different colored cardstock.

Set 1: January, February, March, April

Set 2: May, June, July, August.

Set 3: September, October, November, December

 

After choosing the months for each cardstock, center and adhere the corresponding

4 1/8” x 5 1/8” printed papers to three of the card’s panels.

 

For each month, write out significant dates on the 3/8” strips of cardstock. Place on the printed-paper pieces and adhere. Use stickers or other flat embellishments to decorate the rest of the panel.

 

Remove the top outer cover from the Tissue Box Holder. Fold each card so that the correct month is showing, starting with January. Slip each card into a side panel of the Tissue  Box Holder. Place a boutique size tissue box inside of the holder and replace the outer top cover.

 

As the months change, pull out the cards and re-fold so that the appropriate month is showing. Slip back into the holder.
