I love making personalized gifts for my family and friends. I call it doing a RANDOM CRAFT OF KINDNESS! Lol
I recently made this DIY calendar for my friend and I hope it inspires you to do a random craft of kindness for someone special in your life =)
Buy/make a blank calendar
I bought a blank desk calendar from Paper Source (here) it’s currently on sale for $4.97! The paper is really good quality and it stands! I definitely recommend it
This is one of those projects where it really helps to brainstorm BEFORE you start or else you’ll end up messing up and starting over a million times!!
So I poured myself a glass of wine, pulled out a box of old pictures, and spent the day reminiscing about our friendship and jotting down ideas.
Get out your crafts and start decorating!
I wanted this calendar to feel like a mini scrapbook so I used a variety of craft supplies to create that vibe.
I have a craft box full of random things like glitter markers, washi tape, acrylic paint, stickers, stencils, cute candy wrappers… it’s kind of like a junk drawer honestly.
I probably used a little bit of everything!
Here’s a look at some of the months I decorated!
