Just for fun. I want to make a few more as gifts.  This one the cover was a bit too big, but I loved making it!




Oh, and yes, the picture background is wrinkled..I was to lazy to iron my big backdrop for one thing tonight, as I will hopefully have quite a few things to photograph for my application to grad school portfolio next week. I hope. I mean, I hope I have it all done!

No worries over a few wrinkles! I would just like to be able to do that.

The first picture is the most tempting - I can imagine that I am able to cut paper and cover to produce ... an EXCELLENT grad school portfolio participant!

Well done!

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

I want one of these.  This is totally awesome and new.  How did you bind it?  And how big is the closed book?

They are tiny (3" x 1.75") I just made the calendar, printed, then folded and glued to the cover (which was built with the ribbon on it, so already embedded. I will make a few more and maybe a tutorial for them (and for this year, not last year. Dummy me made the calendar for this year, but as I was making them in December, I put the wrong damn year on this one!)
