I sealed the pages in clear contact paper and sewed them together.  It's quite sturdy.

That is just great, love the idea. What is on the sides? Smiley


If I had a grommet tool, I'd be set.

I used most of the calendar pages for this bag.  All sides, inside and out are just the pages of the calendar, cut to fit the size that I wanted.

A grommet setter is quite helpful for this project.

oh! That would make a good thread on the "what the heck can i do with this" board.

So far, my favorite things I've used it for are custom dry erase boards (make great presents for kids and even picky teenagers) and in my first apartment I covered all the cabinets in white contact paper and stenciled all over them so I could have custom kitchen cabinets that were 100% removable, although you should have seen the apartment manager's face when he thought I'd painted everything lol  Cheesy
