Jumbo Tear Off Calendars

As long as this is New Year's Eve, and I just went around the house hanging new calendars, and taking down old ones, I thought this was the perfect time to share the calendars I made as Christmas presents! I love the idea of a tear-off calendar. You, know the tiny kind you get this time of year from the corner store or the bank? I had even started to make my own, to fit on a quarter sheet of cardstock. They are much more attractive, and great to stick in with a card! For Christmas, I decided to make a bunch for family and friends. I made them on a much larger scale, however! I made the calendar part using the redcastle calendar printing program. The finished stack of 12 months is about an 8.5 x5.5 inch size. I mounted them on cardstock, added a picture, and embellishments to the base 12x12 cardstock/patterned paper, and added a hanging hole or magnets on the back! They were a hit! Here are a few that I made:

For my younger brother:

For my Mom:

For my Dad:

For my nail girl:

For my neighbor:
