Step 1: What you need
You further need:
scissors, cutter knife, cutting mat
a 3/4 inch circle punch or stamps/stickers with numbers
hole punch, for example the Crop-a-Dile
24 printed stories/recipes/quotes
if you like, my file with premade numbers
Step 2: Add numbers
Alternatively, use stickers or number stamps, whatever you like.
Step 3: Punch holes
Step 4: Attach the gifts
I chose 24 short stories, poems, recipes etc. and printed them on high quality paper. I folded and/or rolled the sheets, tied them to a pretty ribbon and threaded the ribbons through the calendars’ holes. A square knot on the back – that’s it. I used a small IKEA Allen wrench to push the ribbons through the holes. If you give the calendar to a couple, you can use two different ribbon colors for them to take turns in opening the gifts.
