I've entered this is the Most Wanted Christmas DIY Challenge http://www.vouchercodes.co.uk/
I’ve seen these calendars on lots of blogs that I thought I would have a go, but I just looked at pictures of the finished products, not the instructions …. as a result I sort of made it up as I went along with just a basic idea of construction in my head!
My mistake was using and covering beer mats ….. they proved to be far too heavy, especially when embellished. In the end I made about 8 stands before I could got the measurements right so that the thing would stand up! (The sides measure 11cm x 11cm and the base 11cm x 5cm, and I also added a couple of strips of black card to the base to strengthen it)
I covered each mat with DCWV self adhesive papers and then embellished with various punched flowers and butterflies etc.
The calendar pages are from an Anita’s calendar tab that I took apart and backed on silver card.
