30 Days of Gift Making, Day 5

Hi Everybody!

Welcome to the 30 Days of Gift Making. It's one Blog a day for 30 Days of Gift making Ideas and projects!  Every day has a new blog, and a new awsome gift idea.  Yesterday, hopefully you visited Debbie at  DD's Crafts.  Wasn't her card set super cute?!?!  Today is my turn.  So my gift is a calendar.  I make these for my whole family, and the out-of-state relatives really love it, 'cause they are able to keep up with what our family has been doing all year long!  To keep the cost down, I make one original calendar, and then I make color copies for the rest.  I have a Bind-it-All, so binding it myself is a LOT cheaper.  Also, sometimes there are some blank calendars in the $1 section at Target.  That's the kind I used in these pictures.  Here are some of the pages:

*Some patterned paper, stickers, and voila! You have a calender cover :o)

*November-just used Paperdolls, and Animal Kingdom carts.

 *Used Snow friends cart for this December page.  Aren't those the cutest snowmen ever?!?!

*For October, I used ZooBalloo, and Paperdolls.

Hope you liked it! Now don't forget tomorrow to head over to Alma's Blog to check out another awsome gift idea!

And in case you miss something, or want to go back to see a project again, here is the whole Calendar of Daily Blogs to visit each day:
