I will admit, I am a Doodle Pop hoarder.  I have hundreds.  I love them, and I'm afraid to use them all in one!  So when the design team was challenged to use Doodle Pops and Puffy Stickers for a project... I decided to go big!  By big, I mean I used a dozen Doodle Pops!  (I might have needed oxygen after this craft project...)  I created  a fun perpetual calendar for my craft area using them all!  Take a peek...

To create the base for my calendar, I started with a brochure/photo holder cut file from Lori Whitlock which I resized to make a bit larger.  I added a piece of chipboard to the back of the box for stability, and covered the whole box with some buffalo-woodgrain petite prints.  I then used my Cinch disc puncher to cut the top and add some rings.  This allowed me to create number flips for the days of the month.  For the number pieces, I cut 14 pieces of swimming pool dot-stripe petite prints, measuring 1.75' x 2.5'.  I added some skinny alpha numbers to the center, and punched them with my disc cinch.  The left side numbers are 0-3, the right numbers are 0-9.

The front panel of the box measured slightly larger than 3" x 4", so I cut 12 rectangles using a die from my stash and various papers, and proceeded to decorate each using Doodle Pops and the Alphabet Soup Puffy Stickers.  Each month, I can swap out the front panel, which is attached with a mini clothespin.  The extra months are stored in the front pocket.

The back of the box has an easel to help it stand up.
Here is a look at all the fun months!  Those Doodle Pops are just too cute, and the Alphabet Soup Puffy stickers were the perfect size to list the months!

The best part of this project... although I used all the Doodle Pops, I still have them to look at any time I wish!  It's a win-win, lol.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
