This past week, a lady from my husband's work let me borrow her Cricut machine. Um, I am in LOVE with it.
I've been wanting to make a cookie sheet calendar for a while now, so this was the perfect opportunity.
(Be prepared, this post has a TON of pictures)
First, I got out my cookie sheet and began cutting computer paper so that I could see what layout I wanted before actually cutting the chip board. I took a few ideas from different blogs, and finally decided that my calendar would have quotes and pictures.
Once I got that down, I decided to start cutting out the chipboard with normal scissors.
After I got all the pieces cut, I swore I would never (ever ever) cut chipboard again. My fingers STILL have bruises on them.
Once the chip board was cut, I cut and glued paper to the chipboard. This is where I began to fall in love. That love only grew once I started adding letters.
Here's the finished project.
Extra Quotes (I didn't get a photo of all of them, sorry)
(is this waaay too many pictures? I'm so sorry!)
Extra Month Numbers:
And one more picture of the finished project for good measure.
