Another fun item to make this time of year is a coaster calendar. I use the heavy chipboard coasters that are available at your local dollar store 6 for $1. Cover them with cardstock or DSP, embellish, add a small calendar and your finished. You can also add a thin self-adhesive magnetic strip to the back and it becomes a refrigerator magnet! The yellow one was dry embossed then sanded lightly so the embossed image would stand out on the patterned paper. The one below I used the retired Weathered background stamp and Old Olive ink on Whisper White cardstock to create the background. The Upsy Daisy stamp and more Old Olive ink were used to stamp the flower image. I matted the calendar on Old Olive cardstock, glued it on and added the riboon.
