My cousins girlfriend came over to my house a few times to work on the project, but we never finished it because on a good note my cousin got a job which meant no more time to craft. I bet you know how that goes?
I started making another one for my mom and grandma, but again I didn't finish it.
On Weds my very special crafting friend, Julia, came by and helped me finish BOTH of the calendars! I really wanted to have them finished by December 1st and WE did it! I can't thank her enough for her help!
And now I can finally share my creation with all of you!
I used my one of my favorite paper collections by My Minds Eye. It's called I believe! All embellishments are from the collection or from dies and punches, but the drawers and shelves are my SVG. I am so in love with this paper I bought 3!
Hope you like it! The first one is my cousins. She wanted it kind of fun and funky so here is what we came up with! Remember EVERYTHING IS PAPER! Completely handmade! :)
I also cut out little squares for the inside of the drawers. I love having little secret squirrel surprises on my projects. The squares were stamped with little surprise Christmas characters and sayings so when you open the drawer there is a little unexpected surprise!
The 2nd drawer set is almost identical, but it is more clean and simple! Julia is very talented at clean and simple so she did all the embellishing of the drawers for me! Isn't it great?
I can tell you that this Calendar is a bit complicated. I just can't decide if I should sell it? Part of the problem is I really don't have a way to do a tutorial for you and it might be too complicated without a tutorial. What do you think? If you are interested in purchasing this SVG please email at firstname.lastname@example.org. It does make an amazing gift for someone special! You will blow them away that you made everything!
