Here is the scrapbooked January page in my personalized CD Jewel Case Calendar. Like it? So easy, so fast, so fun.

Calendar Page:

Recycle a cereal box; cut to CD-case size.

Glue on wrapping paper remnants.

Glue on printed calendar month.

Embellish with (very old) recycled foam flower.


CD Jewel-Case Transformed into Calendar Stand:

Carefully undo the lid from the case.

Re-attach  it back to front, so the flap stays up at an angle.

Clip in your calendar card.



So, if you still need a 2012 calendar, despite my list of recommended online knitting, crochet & otherwise cool & creative 2012 calendars (probably on sale now ….) + despite the wonderful 100%-eco perpetual journal tutorial?! IF SO, then I have good news for you as I have a new freebie to share with you.

Fun and frivolous CD Jewel Case Calendar

Recycled CD Jewel Case Calendar, 2009

I used to make the pages completely by hand, including the dates section, but with the advent of an actually working printer next to my desk, I’m using a printed calendar as a base for my scrapbooking project, and you get the benefit of this.
