Butterflies Easel Calendar (Crafty Creations Challenges #283)

Hi everyone :-D

It´s time for a new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges.

Our theme for this fortnight is #283 - White Plus One.

I chose black & white color combination, one of my favorites, and made a Butterflies Easel Calendar for my dear friend who had a birthday last week. Late again with a birthday present, but she won´t mind. 

I made an easel calendar using a great photo tutorial Kalendarkarte - calendar card from Stempeleinmaleins. Calendar dimensions are 105 mm x 148 mm (4 1/8" x 5 7/8") 
I made monthly calendar in MS Word using lovely Aerofoil free font from DaFont. After printing, I cut out same sized rectangles and glued them together on top. If you would like this calendar in MS Word format (it´s editable), send me an e-mail and I´ll send it to you. :-D
I decorated calendar with black die-cuts 'Flutter Tree' I bought on eBay while ago. I used two of them, one whole 'Flutter Tree' and butterflies from other die-cut (I cut them off). 
I printed one of my favorite quotations on white cardstock paper, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso quotation, cut out small rectangle, glued it on black cardstock paper, added dimensional foam on the back and placed it on the calendar. 

List of supplies:
  • Aerofoil free font from DaFont 
  • white cardstock paper 
  • black cardstock paper  
  • die-cuts 'Flutter Tree'
  • UHU universal glue
  • white water based glue 
  • dimensional double sided adhesive foa
  • computer 
  • printer
  • scoring board
  • trimmer 
  • ruler 
  • scissors
