Special Ops: Perpetual Calendar

2015 is upon us!
A new year means a new calendar.
If you are looking for a one of a kind calendar that you can put together quickly this project is for you.
First, put the kids to work!
Purchase an assortment of pre-cut cardstock shapes. These are by Craft Smith Co.
Assign months to each child. Let them decorate with their own personal style.
Assign numbers as well. You will need 0 through 3 and 0 through 9.
Punch holes in the shapes, stack months in order, feed onto clips.
Stack the numbers 0 through 3, feed onto a clip.
Stack the numbers 1 through 9, and 0 feed onto a clip.
Remove the glass from an 8x10 frame.
Wrap three strands of twine around the width of the frame.
Punch 2 circles of cardstock. Adhere to the back of the frame with all purpose glue so that the twine  will not slide on the frame.
Wrap three more strands of twine around the horizontal strands in the front then around the frame, tie in the back. These will stabilize the twine so that the months and numbers can hang securely.
 Cut a piece of cardstock to fit the frame.
Add a photo and embellish so that the design overflows onto the outer edges of the frame.
 Hook the clips over the twine in the front.
Change the numbers daily or set them to holidays and birthdays as a unique reminder.
Check my blog Scrappin' Chaos for a list of supplies.
Scrap On!
