Circle Cutter-

Punch 913

2012-2013 Calendar

Good morning, Stephanie here with a quick, easy and fun project.

Every year or so I purchase a pocket book sized 2 year calendar.  It's the perfect size for my bag and with a 16 year old in the house, I need to know what I'm doing and when!!!  But, the calendars are always the same old cover from year to year.  This year I decided to spice it up and alter the cover. 

Using the Circle Cutter and Punch 913 I created a fabulous new look for my calendar.

Very simply, I covered the existing cover with some red dotted pattern paper which was mounted on white cardstock, used Punch 913 (without the inserts) to create a border strip, then used the Circle Cutter to cut the white and black circles large enough to fit my die cut letter.  

I printed the year on my computer, inked the edges and placed it on top of the punched edge before adding the circles.  Then I added a little bling.  How easy is that! 

Can you see how versatile these punches are!!!!!
