So, I crafted about it.
Using a bunch of stuff I had lying around, I made up this birthday and anniversary tracker. For the heck of it, I'll bore you all with the what and how of it.
Some of the tools I used
What I used:
An old hardcover book (just need either the front or the back)
Old scratch paper (I used a watercolor painting that didn't work out)
Sticky back Velcro
Scrap Sticker Paper
The tools that I used where:
Mini folder punch
All I did was punch out 12 mini folders from the scratch paper, and a ton of small squares from the paint chips.
Fold the mini folders and staple.
I used the scraps of sticker paper to make sure that the stamped months show up better.
For the information, I just put the date of the event in the upper right hand corner, the name of the person in the middle, and the year of the event on the bottom (like how I hid the info?). On the back of the square I wrote the address.
On the back of the mini folder, I attached the Velcro, then stuck the other piece onto the old book cover. I punched a few wholes, braided some ribbon, threaded it through, and hung it up.
Why do all this?
So that at the beginning of the month, I can sit down at my desk,
pull off the current month, and send out birthday or anniversary cards, letters or postcards.
Well, that's the plan anyway. We'll see how it all works out.
