Use a Project Life Kit to create a Birthday Month Calendar Mini Book. A complete step-by-step tutorial!
I am a list maker - If I don't write something down I usually forget.
One thing I am really bad at is remembering birthdays. The only birthdays I have memorized are my kids, parents, and siblings.
Mt poor nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. I have no idea when their birthdays are.
So I thought making a Birthday Calendar Mini book would help me - plus it is super cute!

Mini Book Tutorial:
Cut the pieces of chipboard into 13, 4 x 3 ½ inches rectangles.
Punch a hole in the upper left corner of each chipboard piece. Making sure that the hole is in the same spot on each piece so they line up.
Paint the edges white and let dry.
Look through the Project Life Kit and choose 26 of the small papers.
Ink the edges of the paper if you would like. This adds dimension but is completely optional.
Adhere the first paper on the first chipboard piece.
Before you tape the second paper on the back be sure to use the hole punch to punch a hole in the paper.
Now put your back piece on and punch your hole again.
Repeat until all of the papers are on your chipboard.
Place all of the pages on the metal ring.
Using the rub-on letters, add the title and months to the pages.
Tie some ribbon to the ring to finish off the Birthday Book.
Here are all of my pages.
Isn't it cute??!!
This would make a great gift or you can keep it for yourself.
Now all you need to do is write in the birth dates for each month!
