Another Perpetual Birthday Calendar & Free Tutorial

Stampin' Up!Oval Occasions Perpetual Birthday Calendar Box - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I have a problem…I can’t stop making these Perpetual Birthday Calendars and boxes! It’s time to get out that designer series paper you’ve been hoarding and showcase your favorite patterns.  What better project to make than one that will be used year after year. Yesterday I shared 3 different calendar boxes. (If you missed that post you can view it HERE.) Here’s another one.
Stampin' Up! Pierced Bloom Dies Perpetual Birthday Calendar Box idea _ Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Today’s design features the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper. (You can get this paper for FREE with a qualifying purchase through the end of February). I used the Pierced Blooms Dies to fill the envelope I cut from the Snail Dies. (This set is worth it just for that envelope die!!!!) I love this color scheme of Navy, Seaside Spray, and Basic White.

These are really quite easy to make. You just print, cut/punch, and adhere to patterned paper and/or cardstock of your choice.  There’s so many different ways to decorate the front of the boxes!  I can’t wait to give these to my friends and family. I have two friends with birthdays this month. There’s even room to fit a set of homemade birthday cards in the box (which I love to give as gifts). The recipient just needs to fill in the names of family members & friends beside their birth date on the monthly dividers. Here’s the details:

To make the box: Cut cardstock 9 1/4 x 9. Score along the 9 1/4″ side @ 4 1/2 and 6. Score along the 9″ side at 1 1/2 and 7 1/2. Cut in on the 4 1/2″ and 6″ score lines up to the 2″score line on both sides. Notch the tabs as shown below. Fold and burnish along score lines. Add adhesive to the notched tabs and the smaller ends which will be the front of the box. *I adhered the tabs to the outside of the back of the box then folded the front flaps back over the tabs. (I did this because I didn’t want the tabs on the inside to interfere with pulling the cards in and out.)

I cut the sides of the box at an angle from the front to the back but you could leave it straight if you prefer.

The cardstock layer on the front of the box measures 3 x 5 3/4. I cut the Designer Series Paper 1/8″ less (2 7/8 x 5 5/8).

The monthly dividers measure 4 x 5 1/2 and are cut from Thick Basic White cardstock. I adhered the same size patterned paper to each then adhered the calendars. I punched 24 cardstock ovals using the Double Oval Punch. I printed the months on Basic White cardstock and punched using the smaller of the Double Oval Punch.

I adhered the months to the ovals then adhered to the front of the divider. I lined up the other oval and adhered to the back of the divider. I wanted it to be sturdy to pull out year after year. *Tip: Once you get the first 3 months lined up along the left, center, and right it is quick & easy to finish the rest by lining up the blank cards in front of these and using January, February, and March as a guide for where to place ovals.

I hope you enjoyed the different ideas for these boxes. If you have any questions feel free to email me. You can click on the print friendly version for my monthly calendars below.

*Note – If you plan to mail these, the box and a set of birthday cards fit nicely in the Paper Pumpkin boxes! I always save my Paper Pumpkin boxes and turn them inside out to send packages.

A Fun Fold Farewell to the Retiring In Colors

Stampin' Up! Stitched Labels Dies and 2018-2020 In Color fun fold card ideas for friend, get well, thank you, birthday, and more - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I couldn’t resist one last nod to the 2018-2020 retiring In Colors.  I love the bold colors and will miss Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick the most. This is one of the cards that was included in my Just Stampin’ Card Kit To Go for May. I always include at least one fun fold card in each monthly kit.  I made 5 different versions to show the versatility of my card kits.  I create them so that you can use any stamp set you already have to add a sentiment.  All you have to do it stamp and adhere! Everything you need to create is already cut, scored, and ready to assemble. Plus you can refer to the tutorials to create more on your own!

This fun fold design can be used vertically or horizontally.  There’s so many possibilities for adding the flower depending on whatever sentiment you use.  Here’s a close up look at each card.
