Mini-tin Calendar --- Consumer Crafts Prize Pack Giveaway

Pin It

While I was creating my Hug Tins for Crafts Unleashed, I had an idea of how to transform some simple wooden squares into a cute little calendar for my desktop.  The process is fairly straightforward and the result is my favorite calendar I have ever used.


Here are the little tins all "packaged" up.  You could tie them up with a little raffia like this is you are gifting them.  
I accented one with a brone rim (colored with bronze Sharpie) and the other with a little card stock in "fauxbois".

Most of the time though, those lids will be gone and you will have a month on one side and day on the other.

You are going to start off with wood squares and rectangles.  Simply stamp your numbers and letters on each.  

Once you have them stamped, add a little line of copper, gold or silver with these fun SHARPIE METALLICS.
Put all the month tags in one tin and your day numbers in the other.  You will keep them stored in these tins.

 Saw a little groove in each of your chunky wood coins, place the wood directly on top of your stored pieces, wedging it into the tin.  
You will want a piece of wood that is just slightly smaller than the rim. not too big and not too small! 
 Place your tag in the groove and voila!  You are done!

...and all together again...
