Wish upon a date

I've made a calendar to hang up using a shaped chipboard hanger.  I covered the base with papers, and then typed out a calendar in Word, cut out the months roughly and laid each month on top of each other starting from December and moved forwards through the months. Because I'd used paper, I could just about see through to ensure that the month titles and day numbers were lined up.  I then stitched across the top to seal them all in place.  After they were stitched, I trimmed off the edges so they were all neat.

I then decorated my hanger and threaded some satin aqua ribbon through the holes to hang it up.  I figured that the stitching will act like perforations so that the months can be ripped off as they end.

Hope you like it. :0)   This project is to support the challenge at Crafty Little Fairies where the theme is a super easy 'anything goes' this week.  Make sure you pop over to the challenge blog to see what my talented teamies have been up to.
