One of my favorite thing to do is celebrating others birthdays and making people feel special on their special day. It doesn’t take much to show someone you are thinking of them whether it be handpicked flowers on their doorstep or simply a written note. I find that I have more fun getting things together for someone’s birthday when I have ample time to prepare for it. Enter my birthday calendar. This was so simple to make and you can jazz it up as much as you’d like or keep it super simple. I used the same brown paper I purchased for yesterday’s project and fit two months on each 8.5″ x 11″ sheet. Just print out the correct number of days for said month (ex. 31 for 31 days in October) and put a little line next to each number. I chose to give mine a more handmade feel so once I printed those out and cut them in half I stamped the corresponding month on the top of each one (I am LOVING my new white stamp pad) and did some very simple illustrations.
All in all this took me about 2 hours – perfect for a weekend or evening craft. All you do then is write in your friends’ names on their birthdate. You can keep this from year to year since the dates don’t correspond with a day in the week – it’s just simply a date reminder! It’s always a good resolution to put a smile on someone’s face.
