DIY Pocket Calendars with Angela

Hello friends!

Angela here. Today I am sharing my very first project made using the new BoBunny Time & Place collection. I created three pocket calendars and if you'd like to see how to make them, there is a video too!


These pocket calendars will be a gift to give to my friends for Christmas. Time & Place collection inspired me so many other projects and DIY to make. For example, you could make a big calendar to hung up or a teeny one, smaller than the one I am showing you, using Time & Place stamps.


To create these, I started stamping the monthly calendar on 12 pieces of 4 x 4 inches white paper.
For extra fun, I stamped each month in a different color using Vicki Boutin Color Wheel inks


To hold in place the calendar I used the colorful brads that are in the collection, two for each calendar.
I also wrapped washi tape around the papers for making the calendar sturdier and to embellish it, too.


The calendars have a hard cover made of cardboard wrapped in DoubleDot Vintage cardstock. The measures of the cardboard are 2 pieces of 4,25 x 4,25 inch and 1 piece of 0,50 x 4,25 inch.


For the closure I made two versions. One has got a brad and a piece of twine to wrap around the brad and the other has an elastic instead. 


This is how the calendar looks like when it is open. I adhered a journaling card to write a note to my friend.


I embellished also the cover, playing with Distress Oxide and bits and pieces from Time & Place collection. It carries such gorgeous flowers!!


Here is a close-up of the closure made with a beautiful flower brad and the elastic. I was lucky enough to find in my stash an elastic that perfectly match the color of the paper.


VoilĂ ! This is all for today. I hope you liked my pocket calendar idea and hopefully my friend too.


Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll see you soon!
