I used a crackle paint technique on the actual calendar and then just got to work assembling, covering, and embellishing all of those tiny drawers. I painted the interior of each one (either red or green) and used some clear decoupage medium by Martha Stewart (a very happy new find) to adhere my strips of paper.
Instead of putting photos in the center of the calendar I decided to just create this cute little sign and use some more fun embellishments. The only thing left to do is go shopping and fill up all of the little drawers. Darian has already given me lots of suggestions - hee hee! Thanks for stopping by! :)
