Altered frame~Desk top calendar, post it & pen

I love this project! I made this for the desk in my new stamping room. You can do any paper/stamp/color theme. I have a few more ideas for this I am going to try. This one is pretty simple!

I started with a clear acrylic picture frame, you can find these about anywhere and mine was under $2. You can print the calendar from splitcoaststampers under downloads and it comes with instructions on how to cut it.

Simply cut your card stock to fit in your frame, you can pull out the promotional "picture" that comes in the frame and use it as your template. Then simply stamp and add some designer paper of your choice and slide it in the frame! I attached my post it pad with sticky strip and once I had made my calendar I added sticky strip to it as well. I topped mine off with some ribbon and a bow. The pen holder was made by cutting and scoring a small strip of cardstock into a square and leaving a tab that you can slide into the frame and stick with tape to your larger cardstock. At this point you can add a piece of rolled up DP to the inside of a pen (not shown) I just stuck a gel pen in for picture purposes as the pen I plan on using is not here yet.
