Authentique October Desk Calendar Tutorial: Bibbety Bobbity Boo!
Hello, Friends! My calendar tells me it’s time to get our Authentique October Desk Calendar Tutorial published. So “Bibbety, Bobbity, Boo!” here you go! If you’re new to my blog, this has been a year long series using Authentique Paper’s Calendar Collection. Each month we create a decorative desk calendar that also functions as a memory keeping system. All the calendars measure 6″ x 6″ and feature an easel style design. The interior houses mini folios and a hidden pull out folio. Many of you have told me you are making these as Christmas gifts for family members. Some of you are using the basic folio design with other paper collections and giving the finished product as a birthday present. I think both ideas are fabulous!
The Spooktacular October Calendar Collection
Every month, I say, “This month is my favorite.” That’s how you know this is a great collection, right? But I really do love these “too cute to spook” October patterns, colors and images, don’t you?
I found some adorable owl buttons in my stash. My sweet husband, who is always on the lookout for unique embellishments for me, picked these up for me some time ago. They make the perfect embellishment for the pull out folio.
We change up the design of the pull out folio this month. Add a pocket and some mini folios to create even more room for photos. What do you think?
Then we have these adorable silhouette images. And I found ribbon in my stash that makes me think of candy corn. How fun is that?
So if you’re ready to get going on your October Desk Calendar, please join me in this YouTube video and we’ll create it together.
