The Wearing of the Green: March Desk Calendar Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  With Valentine's Day behind us, it's time to get ready for the wearing of the green!  Let's get ready for Saint Patrick's Day by making the March Desk Calendar with the March Calendar Collection Pack.  (If you need to get caught up on this series, you can find the January and February Calendar tutorial HERE. )  

The basic design is the same with a 6" x 6" easel card base and a calendar and pocket on the inside.

But this month I streamlined the design of both the hidden pocket and the folio pocket so it's even easier to make.

I love that these little desk calendars double as a folio.  And many of you contacted me letting me know you were making birthday cards and more by using the basic design with a variety of papers.  That is so cool!

The video below will guide you step by step through creating the base, the pockets, the folio inserts and even decorating the cover.

So are you ready to get your craft on?

I hope you have as much fun making these sweet calendars as I have designing them!  Per your request, we'll make one a month throughout the year.  Next up is April!  I can't wait to share it with you!

Happy crafting!
