Craft Fair Desktop Easel Calendars!



This is a close-up of one of the Desktop Easel Calendars of many that I created for the craft fair last week. They make such great gifts for Christmas and I always sell out each time I make them. I had a stash of retired cardstock and retired designer paper that I wanted to get rid of so I used them up with this project. The photo below shows you how the easel calendar stands:



The neat thing about this calendar is that it uses half a sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock so you can create two of them with one sheet of cardstock. Here's how:
  • Calendar Base: Cardstock cut at 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score at 1/2", 1-1/2", 2-1/2" and 5-1/2". Fold on all score lines and glue the small tab under the front as shown in the photo.
  • Layer #2: Add a layer of cardstock to the front measuring 2-1/2" x 5". I used white to show off the colors of the designer paper.
  • Layer #3: Add a strip of designer paper measuring 1-1/2" x 5" and glue centered. 
  • Press the self-adhesive calendar in place to the left and decorate the right side as you like!
I purchase all of my calendars from Vippies and it's the largest size available. Thanks for visiting me today!

  1. I buy my calendars from them as well -- if you don't mind my asking what do you sell them for at the Craft Fair .. I have a tough market -- and there are times I want to scream! LOL

  2. Thanks for sharing this! I get my little calendars from SkyBluePink and they are closing their doors soon! EEK! Hubby was aghast, "How will we get the little calendars??!" Well, now I know. I use the smallest one Vippies sells. I used to make a decorated shipping tag with them on it. Now I just give out the calendars and let people do as they please. I like you easel idea. You have great ideas often!
