This month, we were challenged to come up with a calendar in honor of the new year. I have just finished my planner, so now I wanted to concentrate on a type of perpetual calendar. I had inspiration from these sources I found on Pinterest. Have I told you how much I love Pinterest? I am sure you do too! This perpetual calendar and this perpetual calendar really caught my eye! So, that is what I based my design on.
Without further ado, here is my project... I have a video on YouTube also, so please some check it out!
here, by Scrapalette. We Are Memory Keepers made the eyelets I used to thread the ribbon through.
Now I'm going to attempt to explain how I made the "sticks". If you want to make your own version of this you will need to make 9 of them altogether. They are double sided. They each have 6 squares for the numbers of the days. Below is the list of numbers, I'm using the * to represent a blank square. If you look at the pictures above, it will make more sense. The first row of numbers on one side, the second on the other and so on. (I realize that these are horizontal and they should be vertical but I couldn't figure out how to do it...sorry!!! If you have questions, please let me know.)
1 8 15 22 29 * (Then, on the other side do the following numbers)
1 8 15 22 * * (There is no day 29 unless it's leap year.)
2 9 16 23 * *
* 2 9 16 23 * (This stick is for February only, as it has 28 or 29 days
2 9 16 23 30 *
* 2 9 16 23 30 (For all other months)
3 10 17 24 * *
* 3 10 17 24 * (Some months have no 31st)
3 10 17 24 31 *
* 3 10 17 24 31
4 11 18 25 * *
* 4 11 18 25 *
