Sunflowers all Year Long

I thought I'd never want to do another calendar after those 150 but this size was easy and since I was only making 1 and it was for a special little girl to give to her teacher, it was pure joy.


My neighbor, Gillian, needed a gift for her teacher who loves sunflowers. I knew I didn't have a sunflower stamp but I remembered I'd been hoarding this piece of Bo Bunny sunflower paper so construction was quick and easy. I got the calendar case at http://www.calendar-case.com/. If you go looking, this is what they call their CD calendar case. I love these because there's a ledge to hold the calendar in place.


I cut the DP, mounted it on Brocade Blue CS, then matted the calendar and quotes and adhered them. I glued a piece of the DP to some lightweight chipboard with Mono-Multi, then cut out two of the sunflowers which I adhered with dimensionals.

I think you can see the ledge a bit easier in this photo. I tied a piece of blue gingham ribbon around it for gift giving. There's even room for Gillian to write her teacher a note on the back. Judging from the smile on Gillian's face, I think she liked it.
I hope you do, too!
Blessings and Happy Stamping,
Charlene
