Desktop Calendar Cube v2

Hi again friends,
Today I'm sharing a modification to the Desktop Calendar Cube project I shared last time. One of the ladies from the class I had, Mary, thought about adding a hutch or cover over the cubes and I thought it was a great idea! Plus, it might make it harder for our little darlings to be able to grab & throw them ;)  To take it one step further, I thought this would be a good place to add a Day Label :) You decide if you want to add that or keep it as it was originally if you make one yourself. Here's the new version:
This one is for my desk:

 This one is a sample for my friend's store:
Here's the original, no cover:
 and here's V2 with the cube cover:

The space between the back panel & cube cover allows you to push the cubes forward to easily change them out. 
 I clipped the months together with a mini clothespin as well as the day labels.

Here's what you need for the cube cover:
CS cut at 11 1/2" x 1 7/8"
Score: 1/2", 2 3/8", 6", 7 7/8"

A)  Glue the 1/2" tab under the long flap.
B)  To strengthen the top, cut a piece of chipboard at: 1 3/4" x 3 1/2"
C) Cut a piece of pattern paper the same size & adhere to cover the chipboard
D) Glue the chipboard piece to the top of your cube cover.
E) Add strong adhesive to the bottom of your cube cover & glue to the top of the small drawer.
F) Add your mat layer & Day Label to the top of the cube cover

The mat for the day labels: 1 1/2" x 3 1/4"

I also created, by request, some Spanish Month & Day labels if you'd like to make it in Spanish :)

Oh, the completed kit goes to:
