Botanical Blooms Calendar Instructions

Happy Wednesday!
Hope you have nice and relaxing time after the holidays. It is my favorite time of the year - just after Christmas and till first few days of January. It always feels so calm and relaxing, no more last minute things to complete and prepare, the calendar is not crazy busy yet and anymore, holiday spirit is still in the air. It is also time to look back for the past year and makes plans for new one.
Today I would like to share with you fun project - small desk calendar. I made one for our last blog hop and promised to share instructions. Well, I made several more - this time using another new products from Ocassions Catalog.
Those framlits are amazing and 3D! So many different floral pieces plus coordinating stamp set.

Close up look of flower and leafs:

How Tos:

  •  Card stock 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 for base; 4 1/4 x 5 scored at 1, 2 1/2, 4
  •  Fold 4 1/4 x 5 piece to form W shape. Apply adhesive to the 2 sides (outside of W)  and adhere inside of folded card base piece. It should look like this
  • I used calendars 2 1/4 x 2 7/8. I mounted them on a 2 1/2 x 3 1/8 piece of card stock.
  • Decorate as desired. I cut one big flower, sponged it in a center with sponge dauber. Cut 2 medium flowers in 2 different colors and 3 different kinds of leaves.
