Off the Page with Jen

Wednesday Greetings to you!  Jen here today to host the blog.

I have another fun teacher’s gift to share with you today! This time, I created a mini calendar using a binder clip and coaster!

To create the calendar base, I covered a 4x4 coaster with paper from the Pattern Perfect - Back 2 School paperline. I inked the edge of the paper with Red Hot PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

I wrapped Ribbon around the top of the coaster and tied it in a knot at the front. I then printed a calendar off of the internet, double matted the pages and attached the calendar with Brads.
I only applied adhesive to the top and sides of the bottom mat so that the binder clip could slip underneath the cardstock and hold the coaster. I then added bling and flowers to the front of the coaster.

To create the base of the calendar holder, I covered the front of a binder clip with paper and inked the edges. I then added chipboard stickers from the Pattern Perfect line on top of a punched scalloped oval.
