Hi Everyone,

So this year my SO is starting his masters. He looked everywhere for an agenda that was small and showed a full month on two pages. He couldn't find one so I suggested that I would make one for him. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. This is the result.

The cover. We are both Star Wars fans so I painted this on the cover (watercolour) and then covered it with clear tape so he could just throw it in his bookbag and not have to worry about it. The cover is made out of watercolour paper.


The Calendar. A full month spans two pages, just as he had wanted. I made 1 inch squares for the days. I used plain computer paper for the interior.


To bind it I used embroidery floss. I first bound the inner pages and then attached the cover separately. I think it looks pretty good and is reasonably rugged.

Thoughts are welcome Smiley

Thanks, everyone.
He did love it and uses it all the time.
I want to make another one but it took a surprisingly long time to make.

Aw man, why didn't I think of doing that instead of spending $20 on a planner at Office Max!?!  Cry
