Beermat Calendar

In my craft group yesterday I decided to make another beermat calendar that I can give to my mother-in-law when I see her today.  I also thought it would show other people in the group how they could make one too.

This was the one I made:

  Dead simple, you just cover a beermat or square chipboard with patterned paper and embellish.  Punch a couple of holes in the top and thread some co-ordinating ribbon through.  I also tend to distress my edges a bit with some sanding and ink.

I'm not a flowery person normally (but MIL is!), this one I made in 2010 is more my style:

I use it each year by just sticking on a new calendar.

So, for a personalised present, just put on a patterned paper that suits your receipient.
Today, the 11th, has a ring around it because it's my eldest son's 12th birthday.

Thanks for looking and for any comments,

I think I remember you showing these last year - on the MSE thread perhaps? Not been on there in ages!

They'd be fab with a magnet on back too wouldn't they! Think your style is my style too :D
