Got Scraps?

Hope you are all enjoying the beginnings of the New Year!
For Christmas I made these pocket calendars for my daughters and wanted to share the idea with you!

I bought very inexpensive 18 month pocket calendars and used scraps of scrapbook paper to re~cover the calendars. 
They came with a clear sleeve that finishes it off perfect!

**I used the original cover as a template to trace the exact size.
They were all different. This one is mine because I love...
cupcakes & roses!

I added a tiny bookmark to each one.
The backside. 

Easy, breezy to make! They make such sweet gifts too!

Have a wonderful day my friends!
