Easy DIY 2023 Calendar

Share-a-milkshake-calendar-2Today's project is an easy DIY 2023 calendar made with a sweet bundle from the Stampin' Up! Mini catalog, Share A Milkshake Bundle [160396].

It's still January so you can continue to make calendars to share with friends, family, and co-workers. 

Earlier this month, this style of calendar was shared on my mini catalog launch with a different theme and different supplies.  While working with this ice cream-themed stamp set, I thought it would make a sweet calendar to have on my desk.


Below are the measurements and tips so that you can create some, too!

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Choose your stamp set and designer paper first.  This makes it easier to determine your colors for card stock and ink.
  • The base is cut 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2 just like a standard-sized card with a "tent" opening.
  • To support the base, you will need another piece of card stock in the same color cut at 4 1/4 x 4.  On the 4-inch side, score at 1/2, 2, and 3 1/2.
  • Burnish on the score lines to form a "w" shape with the two 1/2 inch scores folded up in a valley fold.  Apply adhesive to these two 1/2-inch panels and glue to the inside of the card base as seen in the first photo on this post.
  • Finish the front as desired. (For the sentiment, I stamped and cut the "life is sweet" from the longer version in the stamp set.)
