Fun calendar with Silhouette

To be real, this could be done with index cards, a simple word processing software, minimal scissor skills, and some ink, but if I have a machine that will cut things, I'm going to use it.



I always have to search for the date. Sure, I could just look at the bottom right hand corner of my computer screen, but that's just not pretty.  So, I found an online calendar for 2013, downloaded it in Excel, and reformatted it to make this cute little easel calendar.  I got to play with fonts and use initials and other fun abbreviations for holidays and events too!

Once the calendar was complete, I printed it on cardstock and then cut the shape on the Silhouette.  I hit the edges with a paper towel run across and ink pad, set them in the easel, and viola!  A cute, customized  way to know what day it is!

    1. You do only live like 45 minutes away, and you still need to see the kitchen and the yard - so make it happen, chica :)
