I loved creating my team gifts this year! I fell in LOVE with the 2012 Modern Prints Calender template when it came out and decided that I wanted to make them.
I printed up the calendars with no picture at the top so each page could be embelished. I decorated January to get them started, but since this gift was for my Team Christmas Party I wanted them to be able to decorate the upcoming months however they wanted so I left them as is, ready for embellishing.
The pages are all double sided with the Modern Prints Papers printed on the background so this gift is Green too. After each month is finished they can cut the page up and use the patterened paper on cards or other paper projects.
You can recycle an old CD Case for these calendars but you need to take them apart to make them stand up. I like to use the cases designed to be calendar cases since them open up and stand all in one motion. Mine came from Calendar Cases.
What I LOVE about this project is it's so Quick and Easy to create - perfect for Last Minute Gifts and you don't even need to own My Digital Studio to create it - it's very easy to print the "For Other Applications" versions of the template for your calendars!
I created a quick Tutorial for you, taking you through the steps of making these calendars for both MDS Users and For creation with other applications.
