Too cute to toss away!

On my computer desk, I have this little calendar – and I mean little!


It measures only 2″ by 3″. I bought it because I was captivated by the artwork of Becky Kelly and her absolutely adorable themes of children, woodland fairies, and tiny forest animals.

But when the pages are this cute, how can they just be discarded at the end of the day? (Click on the picture to make it larger.)


I just didn’t have the heart to put them in the trash, so at first I used them for bookmarks, and next for writing little notes, and then it hit me – they’d make great gift tags!

So I gathered some supplies . . .


And I cut some tag shapes from colored cardstock and trimmed the calendar pages.


Then, I did some experimenting with shapes and sizes.


I discovered that if I added my info to the reverse side, I’d have a cute enclosure to include with my customers’ bead and jewelry orders!


The tags really are a win, win, win!

I’m recycling . . .

It’s fun to share these sweet pictures . . .

And I have another quick and easy project to work on during TV Time! 🙂
