Toot Toot Tuesday-Desktop Calendar Tutorial

Happy Tuesday!
It's time to share another tutorial.
This is a simple one (seriously so easy), a cheap one (practically free), and has huge potential for cuteness!
-I always have extra frames around, and a lot of them are missing the glass-and some are even missing the frames! I keep the backs of them around for little canvases for fun projects like this one.
-First I attach some paper-this one I mod podged it on.
-This one I just stapled it on.
-Then I embellished with some things I had in my stash.
-Then I made this little calendar in PhotoShop, I will share with you, so you don't have to go make them! :)
-To cut them so that they are even-first cut them down the middle length wise.
-Then on the one column with January, March and May on it...
-Cut the top 1/8inch off and the bottom 1/8 inch off.
-For the other three columns just cut off the bottom 1/8 inch.
-Then cut each individual calendar to 3 and 5/8 inches.
It's not complicated, but it sounds that way when I type it...maybe it's just me.
Hopefully you are not too confused, because seriously it takes 1 minute to get all the cuts done.
-They will be all the same size except for March which will only be slightly smaller, but they all hang nicely on your new desktop calendar.
-I took some cute binder clips (you can find these anywhere now-a-days, dollar stores, and any office supply store or aisle) and clipped some pictures on.
-I just put a piece of burlap behind the calendar on the left and clipped it with the calendar.
This would be a great, and easy gift for a dad, grandma, grandpa...yourself...
If you do this project, I would love to see the results!
Make sure you leave me a link in the comments! :)

Very cute! I made a reusable wall calendar one year for my mom that I hope to share next week. Love that this fits on your desk.
