The Cutting Cafe - Folded Calendar Inspiration!


Welcome to some Cutting Cafe Inspiration!  Today we're playing with the 2019 Folding Calendar!  This is a fantastic, easy and fun file to play with!  The size is around 3x8 as it comes, but it could easily be modified to a smaller size if you wanted.  It's the perfect size to throw into a purse or bag for a quick reference.


I cut mine from some heavy kraft cardstock... the perforations that the file creates help this to fold SO easily and lay so flat.  I tried to keep it that way so I chose some pretty Arizona papers from my LSS and simply added the 2019 on the front using some die cuts.  I chose to keep mine closed with some ribbon, although a cool elastic type band would help to make it more purse friendly, so I'm going to see about getting something like that.  But for now, the green ribbon makes me smile!


I decorated the inside calendars using a cactus stamp set and then I highlighted important dates with color coded hearts.


I added my coding on my "Notes" page, but the cool part is I could replace this page any time with a new fresh notes page if I want.


And I printed this cute sentiment from the 2019 Planner file and foiled it to decorate the inside... I love this saying!  It's a good reminder...
 

These would make fantastic gifts too!  You could make them in any color and decorate as much or as little as you want!


So fun!

Now!  Head on over to the Cutting Cafe to see what everyone has created using this Folded Calendar!  Be sure to comment on the Cutting Cafe Blog for your chance to win three files of your choice and then hop around to check out all of the details!
