Authentique Calendar Collection Desk Decor Tutorial: January and February
Hello, Friends! I just love the month of January. The whole year stretches out before you like a blank book just waiting for you to write your story. This Authentique Calendar Collection Desk Decor Tutorial is an idea that I think you are going to love.
You know that old song, “Brighten the Corner Where You Are?” These sweet little easel style folios are designed to do just that! Each one measures 6″ x 6″ and is decorated in vintage style using the Authentique Calendar Collection. They are the perfect way to decorate a desk, entry way, or studio and they make a great birthday gift, too. I built some fun features into the design that I think you are really going to enjoy! Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Authentique Calendar Collection Desk Decor Tutorial: Filled with Fun
Open the desk decor to find the January Calendar on the inside along with a lovely pocket of goodies. Fill the dates in on the calendar, or use it to write down birthdays, anniversaries and holidays.
Adding a pocket to an easel style card is one of my favorite design tricks. I’ve tucked 2 wallet sized photo folios inside the pocket along with a journaling card. You could also add a couple of photographs here. But there’s more to this design than what meets the eye!
Pull the tab on the right to reveal a hidden pocket built into the base of the folio. How fun is that?
This folio measures 5 1/4″ square and will hold 3 photos.
Authentique Calendar Collection Desk Decor Tutorial: February
The February Desk Decor is created using the same techniques as the ones from the January calendar.

Because I thought you would enjoy creating these lovely little desk decor calendars, I created a video tutorial. Just follow the simple step by step instructions. I will build the February folio in the video, but the measurements and steps are the same for January. Just change out the papers and images and you’ll be all set.
