Drink Coaster Calendars, versions 3 & 4
You may recall I wanted to make 20 mini desk calendars as teacher gifts for Christmas. My first two are in my December 12th post. I did get those delivered before winter break (before the big snow), but I have not made any more until today.
I don't have a lot of this SU Raspberry Tart paper, and I calculate that I could make 6 more calendars (total; 3 of each version shown above). I was brain dead, design-wise. With the help of my sweet friend, Tracy, this is what she and I came up with. It is a lot of fussy cutting, but I like 'em! Do you see that fun shape behind the fussy cut stamped flowers on the left? That is the SU ornament punch (upside down). That was one of Tracy's ideas! Fab friend, isn't she?
My finger tips are sore trying to put in the jump rings. I have learned that I have no talent for using pliers :) I am determined to get all 6 of these completed today. That will make 8 finished, 12 to go...
