3 Things to Make This Week With Blitsy - Week of May 16
DIY Ruler Studio Calendar
Keep your creative space organized with lovely Maggie Holmes paper and a We R Memory Keepers ruler!
Hello craft friends! I am back with another fun Ruler Studio project for you! My seven year old has been learning all about calendars, so I made this fun home décor piece for her room to help her learn the months and keep organized. I just had to share how easy and inexpensive it was to put together!
Here's what you need to make your own Ruler Studio calendar:
- We are Memory Keepers Ruler Studio 9" Natural Ruler
- We are Memory Keepers Ruler Studio Adhesive Dots
- Maggie Holmes Shine 12"x12" Paper Pad
- Metal Clips
To get started, first print or collect your favorite photos. The fun thing about this project, is you can easily rotate your photos any time you want to mix it up!
Next, find the 12”x12” patterned cardstock in the Maggie Holmes Shine paper pad that looks like a calendar. Use your scissors to trim each calendar month so you have twelve individual pieces.
Open your ruler up to create a large rectangle. You are going to fold the sections in place, and then adhere the two end pieces together using your adhesive pop dots. Your finished shape should look like the photo above.
Next, use your string to tie three strands across the length of your ruler.
Use your metal clips to attach the months and photos in the order you wish. The fun thing about this calendar page, is it can be used for any calendar year. You can easily write the week days above the numbers, or use a pen to circle important dates.
After clipping on your months and photos, you can embellish with additional ephemera or stickers if desired.
That’s it! So easy, and great way to get your little one organized! Lily has loved having it in her room, and I think I just might make one for my office too!
