This calendar is quite simple to perform, it can be present as a souvenir or friends do together with their children, and then give the favorite grandparents! This is a very common way of folding skrapbumagi, usually in this way do fotoalbomchiki small, the size of the finished booklet only 7.5 cm by 7.5 cm.
So, let’s begin! We need at least one sheet skrapbumagi 30 cm * 30 cm, a calendar for the next year (every month measuring approximately 4 cm by 6 cm), ruler, pencil, cutter or scissors, a glue stick, a thin satin ribbon length of about 50 cm. To decorate the need stickers, flowers, stamps, ink, bradsy, rhinestones, buttons, ribbons, cutting, composting, but it is not mandatory. You can decorate the children’s drawings and clippings from magazines and postcards.

Tells how to decorate, I naturally will not only want to advise not to place too bulky ornaments close to the folds of pages, otherwise the calendar is too chubby and will be bad to close.
