1. Tags-punch 31 tags with EK Success "Whale of a Punch"
tag from the Brown Sand P-032 paper (back) approximately 4.5x2.5cm.
If you do not have this punch you
can use the pattern supplied with our FREE printable turkey paper
2. Cut a piece of vellum 9 x 12. You will need to create 6 rows
(days of the week and the numbers of the week) and 7 columns (for
the days of the weeks). Measure and lightly draw vertical lines
on the vellum at: 4,8,12.5,17,21.5, and 26cm.
3. Measure and lightly draw horizontal lines starting from the bottom
and working up at: 4.5, 8.5, 12.5, 18.5, 21.5 and 23cm. This will
create 35 squares that measure 1.5x1.5 inches. The top row is narrower
for the days of the week and you still have a larger space at the
top for the header.
4 . Cut small amounts of vellum tape and adhere the outer edges
of the vellum to the Sand Stones paper P-044 (front). Do not put
any on the top edge.
5. Starting in the middle vertical row stitch from the top to bottom
**Leave the top row unstitched (this is where you will be putting
the days of the week). Stitch
all the rows and columns starting with the middle row and working
your way out. (This way your vellum sews flat on the patterned paper
and does not pucker or twist).
6. Once all the squares are sewn, flip the paper over and pull the
treads to the back, tie them and cut off the excess threads.
7. To makes the opening for each pocket measure down 1cm from the
stitched lines and gently cut openings in the vellum with an ex-acto
knife. (You may need to re-trace your lines with the ex-acto knife
to cut completely through the vellum, be careful not to cut through
**Be very careful, you may have to go over your lines a few times
to cut completely through the vellum.you don't want to cut the paper
that's behind the vellum.
8.Print and cut out Bisous FREEBEE numbers for the days of the month
and glue to each tag, slipping the tags into their pockets.
9. Cut out days of the week from Bisous FREEBEE and glue to top
of each column as shown.
10.Print the calendar topper from Bisous FREEBEE, cut and glue the
topper to the layout as shown. Use
the two stickers "Thanks" "Giving" from the
page of Bisous Fall Stickers and mount on left side of top of calendar
11. Cut a 6-¼ inch x 1inch strip from Green Faux Forest Vellum
P-025 (back), sand the edges and mat with back of Sand P-032 paper.
Add eyelet and waxy flax on the ends and apply the
stickers as desired from Bisous Fall Sticker page. (I used "FALL"
and "with every leaf" stickers). Glue this piece to the
bottom right hand corner of the calendar as shown.
12. Print the Bisous FREEBEE paper piercing pattern (designed by
Melyssa Connolly) and cut the pieces for the turkey from the colored
cardstock as indicated and place him on the tag for Thanksgiving
13. To make the Veterans Day tag glue tin foil to cardstock and
punch or cut out a dog tag shape.
