Altoid tin calendar kit!

I wanted to make a calendar with my club this month, and I really wanted to come up with something new. So here is my altoid tin calendar - I used supplies that I already had lying around, and I even have enough extra to offer this project as a kit so you can make your own!

Once you make up the kit, all the contents fit inside the tin and you can give it as a gift - or keep it for yourself!

You take out the months one at a time and use the magnets to hold the page to the front of the tin. Then the tin will stand up on its own on your desk - isn't it cute? And you can use the magnets long after 2011 is over - you could even cover over the numbers and give the tin to someone else with tags or cards inside.

I even decorated the back so that if it's on a desk and visible from that side, it still looks pretty.

These kits are $8 and available while supplies last, or through December 16. If you live in the Boston Metrowest area and want to arrange pick-up, click here: Add to Cart

If you are elsewhere in the U.S., I can ship the kit to you for a small additional charge. Click here: Add to Cart

Sorry, I can only sell these in the U.S. If you would like more than two kits, please contact me so I can send you a custom invoice.

The kit contains all consumable supplies needed for one calendar, including glass marbles, magnets, altoid tin, calendar, and all Stampin' Up! materials. You will receive complete instructions in an emailed PDF file. Additional supplies you will need:

Sticky Strip
SNAIL adhesive
Crystal Effects
Two-way glue pen
Corner rounder punch
3/4" circle punch

Please note: some prints from the Playdate designer papers used in the kits may vary, depending on availability. If you are picky about what prints you will get, please ask first - or you may be able to substitute a different designer paper pack. Just ask! I can answer any and all questions at loririder (at) verizon (dot) net. Thanks and happy holidays!

This is a stunning little creation. What a great idea.

The papers are gorgeous!

I have a linky party on my blog and I would love for you to link up this pretty little calendar.
