Calendar with Note Paper

I found a cute box for note paper that also had a calendar on it.  You can purchase the  tutorial  from Kim Score here.  I changed my assembly a little from the tutorial. The calendar was printed and cut into individual months to slip into the little frame on the front.  The lid lays down flat to create a closed box. 

The butterfly stamps are from the "Enjoy Life" stamp set by Penny Black.  The stamp is like the butterfly in the middle.  I stamped the butterfly five times with VersaMark ink and clear embossed them.  Sponge daubers were used to sponge on three different colors of ink blending them well.  The two "half" butterfiles were created cutting off the left side wing and attaching a second wing over the right side  to make it look like the butterfly is ready to land. 

A strip of embossed cardstock was added to the right side and the flowers were added.  A Martha Stewart pansy punch was used to create the border on the top.  The paper used for the box is two sided -- one side a beautiful pearlized color and the back side a darker aqua. Computer paper was cut for the paper inside the box. 

This is a little gift I am giving to my daughter. 

The Penny Black stamp set and Martha Stewart punches were purchased from Joan's Gardens.

I have had some emails telling me that they were not able to find the boxes or vellum used in the post I made yesterday.  I have talked to Joan and these items will be in her store very soon.  If you are interested in these products, just email her and she will hold these items for you.

Thanks for visiting.

Hi Selma,

Well, I am going to try and send you a comment, but I am not having any luck in you getting then.

I love this little calendar and the note paper idea. So cute, and I love the theme you selected.

I am sure Shari will be very pleased and love this as a gift from her Mom.
