2019 Stampin' Up! Desk Calendar with Botanical Butterfly

Hi everyone,

Here I am today bringing you a project which would be perfect as a New Year gift - a 2019 desk calendar.

These were so quick and easy to put together - it's easier to show you rather than explain so I've made a little video tutorial which you can see HERE or by clicking the image below.

I made these calendars as little handmade thank you gifts for my November customers - I really hope they will find them useful. I made several different colour combinations:

I used two different methods for the butterflies. For the Lemon Lime Twist and Daffodil Delight version above, I punched out the butterfly from the sheet of ready coloured butterflies. For the Highland Heather and Balmy Blue version below, I used the black and white sheet of DSP, punched out the butterfly and then coloured it with blends. The video shows you both methods.

Which colour combination is your fave? There are even more versions on the video.

This side view shows how the calendar is made to be free standing.
