Hang a Calandar and Note Pad

 Would you like to make one of these adorable Calendar and Note Pad hangers? I know that some of my card club gals have already, because I shared this with them in December.... but now I am gonna share it with you. The top one in purple with the butterfly is for one of my gals in my Stampin Up down-line who just earned a huge promotion. Go Dawn!
 Ok so this is what you will need. Three die cuts using the top note die out of  DSP (Designer Series Paper) I used Eastern Elegance and three from a solid card stock for strength. You will need nine brads to match papers and two top not die cuts of clear transparency. Cut the transparency in half on the long side, so you end up with four 1/2 top note pieces.

Glue the solid card stock to the back side of the printed. Sandwich one clear transparency on one side with the printed paper and one on the solid side. Punch a small hole to fit the brad at three points. The brads will hold the transparency's in place to make a little pocket. You will want a pocket on the front printed side of all three sections, and you will have one extra pocket to add to the back of the section you will place at the top of the hanger. Do this for all three die cut pieces.

 Now use a larger punch to fit ribbon and punch holes in the rounded corner. Lay your top note pieces in order like you would like it to hang. Punch all four corners of the top two pieces, and then just in the top of the bottom section. Tie the ribbon in a knot connecting the sections.  Notice in the lower shot the length of ribbon I cut and connected to use as the hanger. You could also make jump rings and connect the sections with rings. Ribbon was easier.
Embellish as you would like. I made a clay flower and pop dot it over a punch little paper doily, for one section. And then I layered and pop doted the "year" on the seconded section.

I printed the little calendar on card stock at http://www.calendarlabs.com

Cut the calendar sections apart as evenly as you can and stack them up and slip all of them in the middle section pocket. I printed another calendar with just lines to write birthdays and anniversary on, OR you can use a favorite picture in the top section.

The pocket on the back side of the top section can be used to hold the extra calendar or special day sections or you could stamp the seasons and display one at a time in the front pocket.

When adding the post it note, slip about 1/2 of the post it note paper in to the pocket. It can be a little heavy so putting extra of the paper in the pocket helps it to stay in place. You can also remove the last page of the note pad and stick the paper to the section to help it stay in place as well.

 I wanted to show you a close up of the added butterfly to this personalized gift for Dawn. All I did was add an extra embellishment . The butterfly was a food pick from the dollar store, I removed the pic and added holes to tie it on. She loves purple and glitter oh and pickles... to bad I didn't fine a glitter purple pickle pick!

Hope you try this fun project soon.
