In an attempt to keep our family organised, we purchased a few magnetic notice boards which we have mounted on the wall near our telephone.
One of these magnetic boards has a blank month grid printed on it. We've been writing in the months and dates for a few months now, but I decided it was time to simplify the system by making some magnetic numbers to place on our board.
Here's the 'how to':
The numbers in the sheer calendar set are 1" in diametre, perfect for mounting onto a cardboard circle punched with a 1" circle punch. Start by punching 31 x 1" circles from cardstock.
Use vellum tape to glue the numbers to the cardstock circles. In this step you are mounting the cardstock under the sheer number circle, so the colour comes through. This also gives you a base to glue a magnet under the number.... in the next step.
Use a hot glue gun to glue the magnet to the under side of the number.
And you're finished!
If you would like to includethe months your magnetic calendar, repeat the above process. I used a scalloped oval punch as the base of the sheer month pieces. Then add the magnet to the back.
And this is the finished set...
Here's my calendar all set up. I'm hoping it might keep us a bit more organised now!
