I started this project by scanning a pocket sized calendar into my computer. Next, I blew it up to a bigger size. Then I used my Spellbinder's Wizard to flatten an Altoid can---all to make this "magnetic fridge calendar." Hope you like it!

Wizard, Cropodile & "Pacman" distresser

Ink: Chalk Ink-chestnut roan

Paper: All of the paper is from Hobby Lobby

Accessories: "Typewriter Keys" stamp & ribbon from Close To My Heart, eyelets & pop-up dots from Hobby Lobby

I glued the bottom piece of cardstock, after inking it with chalk, to a piece of cardboard for stability. Then I cut and distressed each layer of paper. Next, I used my Cropodile to set eyelets, and also to cut holes, in the tin and cardstock, for the ribbon to go through. The stamped letters have pop-up dots underneath them to make them stand out. All I have to do now is attach a magnetic strip to the back---and then it is finished.
