How's this for a cool little project for your home office? Even better, it's actually useful! This DIY flip calendar, made with Scotch® Expressions Washi tape, is a great way to keep organised and have a bit of fun along the way. I made my calendar in classic blacks and greys to suit an adult's office space. But as you'll see at the end of this blog, the calendar also looks fantastic in bright and fun colours.
Check out this vid on how to make the calendar, and then follow my blog steps below for more info:
Here's what you'll need:
First make the tags which will display each month. Put 12 tags aside. Take one and cover it with washi tape in nice clean lines.
Flip the tag over and fold the tape in over the edges, then hole punch the top.
Then add the characters to spell out each month on the front. Repeat for the other 11 months.
Now repeat the same method with another 4 tags, and number these 1-4 (you can use a different tape design).
Finally make the third group of tags and number them 0-9. You can use a third style of tape.
Stack each group of tags and thread them onto the key rings.
Cut and tie a loop with the string.
Thread the tags onto the dowel and then create a hanger with the string. To keep it more steady when you flip the date over each day, you can tie the string to each side of the dowel.
And its as easy as that! Now just hang your flip calendar somewhere handy, and flip the date each day to keep on track.
I hope you enjoyed this project, and I'd love to see pics if you make one of your own!
