calendar cutie


This is a calendar idea I saw on Splitcoasters. I did this project with my son's 3rd grade class for Christmas gifts for parents. I donated all the supplies, I did not want the teacher taking money out of her pocket.
They did really well with it, I did change out the chipboard piece for just picture matted on some cardstock as their photos were much smaller than the chipboard opening. I just had them use glue sticks to adhere the paper, I helped sand the edges. Now that I got my bind-it-all, I am thinking on making some more calendars!

what a great idea! i've been looking for a craft project to do with my ladybugs 2nd grade class and i think this would be perfect!
questions:
- did you use your bind it all on this? i can't tell.
- did you use chipboard for the backing? which ones?

thanks so much!
