Little Frame Calendars

I saw this GREAT IDEA a few weeks ago and here is my twist on the idea! I needed a fun little stocking stuffer and also these were a perfect thank you gift for my Visiting Teachers.
It can sit on a desk or counter or it even can hang from the computer screen!
OK, I guess I went a little crazy but the frames were only $0.80 at walmart, I used up a lot of my paper scraps, added some rub-ons and ribbon and this is what I did in less then an hour! I have a few extra to give as gifts or a thank you later on.
Go HERE to print the small calendar.
What a perfect gift that keeps giving all year long!!

Can I ask how you adhered the calendars so you can tear off the top month?

To answer Susie's ?- I just cut the calendar's out, put them into a stack and slipped them into the frame. This way the frame holds them in place and all you need to do is slip out the month when it's finished. Simple and easy and a fast way to assemble :)
