Family Birthday Calendar Kits
A2Z Scraplets have just released a great NEW "Off the Page" project in time for Christmas.
What a fantastic idea to give your family or friends as a special gift.
For just $15 you get all the bits & pieces to make a
"Family Birthdays Calendar".
1 x 450mm long x 150mm wide 6mm plywood to use as the base
1 x "Family Birthdays" Words - size approx: 164mm x 86mm & 242mm x 90mm
1 x Packet of Abbreviated Months - each piece approx 13.7mm high
1 x guide to place on edge of plywood for hole placement for screw eyes
14 x Screw Eyes
60 x O's to attach birthday circles
30 x circles (more can be ordered for an additional price)
All you need to do is put it together & decorate it using Paints/Inks/Stencils/Glitter/Paper - whatever your heart desires !!
Here's how I decorated mine
I decided on a "Silver, Black & Blue" colour scheme and LOVE the end result.
I painted the base silver, stencilled on some butterflies & kindy glitzed them. The wording and months are inked black and then I have used dimensional magic so they jump out even more.
The 'circles' have been painted using a metallic paint and I've used a black thin sharpies to write the persons name and date on.
Add some flowers & A2Z Scraplets Paisleys and my calendar is ready
to give as a gift this Christmas.
I was going to give it away but it looks way too awesome hanging on my wall :)
Design Team member Belinda Scott has also sent me through some photos of the one she made. As I kind of rushed her to finish, Belinda only had time to put her gorgeous girls birthdays on and will get around to completing it soon. I love the use of the photos on the circles instead of just the names/dates.
Belinda Scott is having a giveaway of a Family Calendar Kit over on her blog.
Be sure to check it out and leave a comment to be in the draw.
Amy will be back in a day or so to share what she's done with hers.
Have we inspired you to get started on making those Christmas gifts ???
