Upcycled Crafts: Reusing Calendars

December 20, 2013 at 9:09 pm Leave a comment

New Year’s crafts, anyone? As you know, we here at Recycled Reads are all about reuse. And what does everyone need to reuse at the end of the year? Calendars! There are plenty things to do with old calendars. I used them at an outreach event recently as collage material for decorating magnets. Our store calendar for 2014 is actually a 2012 calendar Ruth went through and changed the dates to match 2014.
For this blog, however, Mindy suggested I decorate a box with my old calendar in order to store keepsakes from 2013 in. It’s a pretty simple exercise in creativity, all you need is glue, an old calendar, scissors, a box, and your imagination. Below are some photos of my finished product. Feel free to send us photos of your creation. Happy New year!
