Today I am sharing a little project I have had spinning in my brain for a while. I've been wanting a calendar for my desk at school to match the other things I've made. So I decided to get the idea out of my head & make it happen.
Here is what we'll be making today:
So, ready to get started? Well, grab a venti-sized cup of joe cuz this is a lengthy tute!

Add strong adhesive to the bottom of the sm. drawer box...
Adhere it to the top of the Tissue and Lg. box
Wrap a piece of ribbon around the back part to create a pocket.
Add a bow on top
Download GYPSY cut file for cubes. You'll need the Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More Cricut cart. For the numbers, you'll need the Hello Kitty cart. :)
Don't have a Cricut? No worries, DOWNLOAD THE TEMPLATE I created for you.
Cube one: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Cube two: 0, 1, 2, 6 (which also will serve as a 9), 7, 8
Place the cubes on top of the sm. drawer box.
DOWNLOAD the MONTHS and DAYS LABELS. Cut them apart on the solid lines...
Put a piece of magnet tape to the back of each one.
Here is the finished front of the box
I've also included a couple of fun countdown labels:
Here's the final product, embellished
***NOTE: the drawers are "push" drawers. The buttons are decorative, not strong enough to be used as pulls.
Well, that's it! Hope you like this project & you give it a go :) There's a version 2 of this project I'll add later. I have a kit to give away complete with everything you need to create this project, pre-cut & pre-scored. Just leave a comment :) Yup, this is open to everyone :)
Thanks so much for peeking today!
