I shared a LO I made with a used calendar couple of days back, right? Well, I've always tried to recycle and use whatever scraps I have and not throw them away cos if we put in a bit of imagination, we could 'up-cycle' some stuff...
which is why my hubby calls me a hoarder.. lol.. As I was cleaning up last week, I chanced upon this old calendar... from 2007! hahaha.... eh hmm... hoarder aler t :P
Well,I always know that there's something that I can do with them instead of throwing them away... so, I 'up-cycled' my calendar. This is different from the usual recycling *winks*
Well, firstly, you'll want to tear away each & every single piece of the calendar leaving only the base. But here's another thought, you can actually leave the rest of the calendar months in and make it like an album instead of just using the base like me. Then you'll have a mini flip-project that stands on your table! :) hmmm... maybe I should try it next! :)
Then just start going through your stash, find your favourite paper, embellishments, punches and get started! :) I actually glued those pearls on myself. Not an easy feat... easier to just buy those that you just need to peel off and stick it on but erm, I'm el-cheapo so I had to improvise :)
I added stickles on part of the project too... just to make it more interesting. You know, I'm not really shabby chic but I love how this turned out! :) tell me what you think, k? :)
