I couldn’t find a printable calendar series for this year that I liked so I decided to make my own….here is January 2014 if anyone is interested (Winter Princess theme ) Feel free to use and pass along if you like for personal use. I complied and arranged this calendar, but the images are NOT MINE, they were found via internet search and are the property of the image creator.
It is created in Word so you can add images and text before printing to keep your little one up to date on the upcoming events of the month. I have a few on there for Em already that you can reuse or delete for her checkup, art classes, and PapPap’s birthday day 🙂
Cigar Box or similar (most tobacco shops will give you one free of charge if you ask!)
Pretty Duct Tape or Contact Paper
Foam Stickers (or normal stickers)
What to do:
Cover the lid inside and out and the sides of the box with your duct tape or contact paper. I Used a beautiful butterfly print duct tape, but after all the stickers were on, it looked a bit busy so a simpler base might be better, but she still loves it! 🙂
Now let your little on go nuts peeling and sticking all over to make it their own. They will work on their fine motor skills while making something that is just for them.
Now fill it up with all your little one’s treasures and have a blast!
This is what my little girl will be giving her Grammas this Mother’s Day. They are accompanied with a note that reads: “This is just a little gift so that no matter where you are, I will Always be right beside you.”
Cut the photo to fit into one side of your compact.
Apply a generous and even amount of hot glue to the mirror surface and press the photo firmly and smoothly into place.
The compacts I used are normal on one side and 5x on the other. I used the magnified side to place my photo since NO WOMAN wants to see her face that close up lol 😉
Here is a link to the cards we will be giving as well since they were so darn cute, I had to share. Text reads: “Everyone Needs a Fairy Godmother” – “Unless they have you for a grandmother. Here’s wishing all of your dreams come true this mother’s day!” ADORABLE!!!!!
You will see I made some changes, most notably I hand stitched mine to make them more durable than the gluing used in the original post. My girl and I just loved them so much I had to share it with you….
