So glad that I could be of some help to you... (Woo-HOO! Craftster ROCKS!!)... Pass it on...


ah, this is awesome!  i had saved a bunch of cool calendar prints to make envelopes out of, but hadn't even THOUGHT about using the small print on the back to put on a cute little blank card. great idea! Cheesy  i will be doing this soon!

I was just thinking the same thing, that the BIG pictures on calendars have so many uses, but that the little index thumbnails would be wasted without this application ... I had made many MANY cards with a medallion glued on the front before this, but using the calendar for the envelopes takes it to a whole other level!

This is such a wonderful idea! I can't think of anyone who wouldn't smile if you gave them a note in one of those awesome cards!

Thanks, everyone! That are SO easy, too!

I DO recognize that more expensive calendars made with nicer paper would make nicer envelopes, but surprisingly the dollar calendars work really well, too.... and the stakes are not so high that you would avoid experimenting... (I've seen some really expensive calendars since I started this project, and I know that would inhibit me a lot)

These are so adorable! I have old calendars I may just have to make into some of these. What a great idea. Thank you for sharing! Smiley
