    The ISC Architects have some little mini calendar projects to show you today. Wouldn’t these make great little gifts for friends and co-workers?  To print the mini calendar, we used a free calendar print program from Red Castle. After I printed mine out on vanilla paper, I cut it apart and stapled the pages together.  I attached them to a piece of card board for support then to a slightly larger piece of black c/s. (Click any picture to enlarge.)

Each layer is backed by card board for stability. I then cut a smaller labels 8  out of white card board for my easel back and attached a smaller piece of card board covered with sticky back black felt. I also used the felt for the hinge because it’s more durable and flexible than card stock. The horizontal felt the calendar rests on will fold up flat between the easel and the calendar back for easy mailing. When opened, the calendar bottom rests on the felt which keeps it from sliding.
