Reader Question Answered: Upcycling a Daily Calendar

images cut out of vintage paper, ready to be made into stickers If you’re into scrapbooking or card making, then homemade stickers are an excellent way to add graphics, quotes, or even specific dates from a calendar to your project.

For instance, when making a handmade card to accompany a baby gift or a wedding gift, you could feature a cut-out of the date of that special event. Funny quotes cut out of a desk calendar are a better embellishment to a scrapbook page than over-packaged, over-priced scrapbook stickers purchased from a big-box craft store.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.

  1. Coaster was definitely my first tought, but having 365 tiles stashed in your drawer my not be very efficient.
    Maybe cover the day of the week part with “dry erase” tape (is there such a thing?) and use the pages as a perpetual calendar.
