Hi Everyone! Mini Calendars make a great gift for teachers, co-workers, friends and family. Even with all our electronic calendars, sometimes it's nice just to have one on the desk or refrigerator.

AND you can make them with either the recipient in mind or to help use up your Designer Series Paper!

Some of my local Designer Paper Dolls stop by for an express lunch meeting and we made these. As you can see from the outside, it's snowing! First of the season. Linda mentioned kinda funny we are decorating with flowers and it's winter. TRUE! but we agreed the flowers represent most of the year :)

You if need 24 or less - Stampin' UP! Vanilla Coaster Board works awesome! Cut to a 4"x 4" size. Or you can buy in bulk here:

Qty 50 Plain White Square Coasters Either way, with tax and shipping, it's about $0.20 each. I don't have a good way to cut SU Coaster Board and Round Corners, I didn't want to take a chance ruining my trimmer or punch board. ( I'm an Amazon Prime member..I love the free shipping perk. Click here for a link in my recommendations - other items I use.)

Here's a FREE downloadable 2016 Mini Calendar template: Download Calendar Template 2016

Simply download, trim and staple. Tip!  use printer paper so it's lightweight and tears easily. Glue the last month unto  cardstock then use Tear & Tape to add to square coasters.

Or I found pre-printed 2016 online at Taylored Expressions. I see where they are now out of stock - but I'm sure there's other online sources if you don't feel like printing yourself.

Loved the project. I am wondering if a 3 x 3 post-it-note could be used instead of the smaller one. Can you let me know?
