2012 Desk Calendar

This started with a sketch which I thought would make a nice calendar.  The sketch appeared in the Cricut Circle's exclusive magazine that offered a challenge to use the sketch with your Cricut.  The base started as a piece of 12 by 12 piece of chipboard.  I cut this to 6 by 12 and folded this in half cutting some box lids from Sweet Tooth Boxes at 11.25 inches that fit on the ends.  Two binder rings are used to hold the calendar pages and I weighted the inside of the base with sand sealed in a plastic bag.  Each month has tag with its name on it that can be pulled out to keep track of important dates.
These months follow the sketch, February more closely.  Seasonal Cuts are from Simply Charmed, the USA hat is from Independence day
