Clipboard Calendar PRINTABLE


If you've been following my blog for long... you know I have two loves - Printables & Ribbon!  I've been on the lookout for a calendar for my kitchen and have yet to find anything suitable.  So, I designed my own and I'm calling it a "Clipboard Calendar".


I bought a $0.97 brown, wooden clipboard at Walmart and dressed it up with a quick coat of black spray paint.  Then, I printed my calendar on white card stock, clipped it to the board and tied coordinating ribbon along the metal clamp at the top.  I used 5 coordinating styles of ribbon that matched the January design, each was about 4 inches long.  I stood it up on a small easel and I love it!!

I've got 2011 & 2012 designed and will simply change out the ribbon when I clip a new month on.  I love "interchangeable" and functional decor where the main part stays and you just freshen it up with new designs as the months go by!


I've listed my Calendar Printable in my ETSY SHOP to share with you, of course!  Remember, the best part about buying a printable file is you purchase it once, but can print is as much as you'd like.  Make one for yourself, then create a few sets to give as gifts!  Wouldn't it be fun to give a clipboard, each calendar page with a set of coordinating ribbon to your sister or friend?

What a cool product we focus on Canvas printing that allows users to put photos on canvas but a canvas business card is a great idea.
