January is around the corner, so we'll need a new calendar

Gather 5 coordinating decorative papers. 1 12x12" cardstock for background. Some taupe cardstock for the numbers and month shadow and a coordinating color for the month, punched snowflakes and decorative die cuts (snowflake, snowman and mitten). A bit of ribbon. t!m Holtz tiny attacher. Chestnut roan cat's eye ink. Brown brush tip pen. Some adhesive. And the following QuicKutz dies: Calendar Kit 2, 2008 Calendar months, mini winter shapes, and the "pop up windows" that were an accompaniment to Santa's Workshop. Die cut one header strip and 4 week strips from coordinating cardstock.

Adhere the days of the week letters on the wider, upper strip, centering each letter over the day column. Double stack the month die cuts. Add some glitter glue and some snow glitter. Let dry.
Don't forget to add some glitter to the center of the snowflakes.
For the birthdays of the month, use the pop up window round die adhere it to the back of the week strip with removable tape. Die cut the opening and then remove the tape and die carefully. This will help keep your die in perfect placement for cutting. Reinforce the perforated edges (on the back side) with some tape. Adhere one shape on one side of the opening. Add glue and glitter if desired.
Place a picture of the birthday person behind the opening. I like using the openings between the days on a week strip to insert a tag with important information, such as an address for a party, the birthday person's age, or whatever you need. I used the tiny attacher to attach the folded ribbon to punched tag shape.
