Hello there! Here's a little something I whipped up last Sunday afternoon and I love how it turned out. Now I have all the monthly big events in one place and at-a-glance.
scrap cardboard (old food boxes)
die cut of your choice
ink and sponge (if you want to distress)
I went to my handy-dandy recycling bin and pulled out some large Apple Jacks boxes to be my free "chipboard". I cut them into 5"x5" squares to accomodate my Sizzix Stampin' Up Scallop Square Die, totaling 12. Then I cut coordinating scrapbook papers from my stash and glued those on the squares with glue stick. I ran them through my Cuttlebug to get the scallop squares, then punched a hole in the corner of each with my Crop-a-Dile.

I printed those onto cardstock, distressed everything with chestnut brown ink, and adhered everything together. I added a book ring and a few pieces of ribbon from my scrap jar and voila! Super cuteness, no?
If you want to make your own and have any questions, please shoot me an email or comment and I'm happy to help.
Have a great day!
