Recycled Calendar

• 12 February 2009

I couldn't bear to toss my 2008 Snow & Graham calendar...it's too beautiful for such an end. While sitting down to start making Valentines with my daughter, I decided to make them into blank notes. I could always use a few more of those on hand. Gratefully, I still had a few clear vellum envelopes left (I bought them for pennies at a San Francisco tag sale), which showcase the pretty graphics even before the envelope is opened.

So if you have an old calendar sitting around...

Step 1. Detach papers



Step 2: Using a paper cutter, cut the calendar pages into a size barely smaller than the envelope you decide to use for the project.






















Step 3: Voila...you're ready for a special delivery.

That is a great idea! I have saved my Port2Port calendar to use for gift tags for my family. It is way too beautiful to get rid of.

I love your idea but I think I'm missing something. Is the side without the graphics blank?

Lovely blog and great ideas.

Sallymandy:

Yes, the opposite side is completely blank.
