Easy & Quick Calendar gift

Who doesn't like a project thats quick and easy? Well this one was really quick and i'm impressed with how they have turned out.  I did have images of these looking like Lili had made it at school when i decided to make some coaster calendars and bookmarks but fear not they seem to have come out well!.
 All i did was stick roller glue all around a coaster then placed the coaster on a sheet of patterned card glue side down.  Then cut around the card with a craft knife.  Turned over and did the same for the other side.  Then stuck on a few embellishments and a mini calendar.  Popped it in self seal cello bag and made a topper from card.  Wrote on the topper and embellished.  Give it a go they really only take 10 minutes to do.
These bookmarks are also super easy.  Take a wooden lolly stick.  I bought a pack of about 50 coloured ones for £1.99 from the Range.  Stick on your choice of topper with glue.  I used flower cut outs and popped a brad through the centre.  You can buy packs of these flowers (again from the Range) or use pretty much anything you want.  Pop in a cello bag and make a header out of co-ordinated card folded over in half and write on the label.


  1. These are great. I got a big stash of beermats last week to make little calendars and post it note holders with. Very MSE of me eh!!

  2. Great makes - really like the bookmarks. Jaqui x

  3. What a cute idea with the bookmarks! I bought a pack of those wooden sticks, not yet knowing what i'm going to do with them, but now i have at least one idea! :) Mine aren't coloured though so i'll have to do that myself too.
