Tag Calendar

Hello! Well...I alluded to this project I was working on in my post yesterday. I finished it (finally!) and am so excited to have something I created as a functional piece in my home.

I recently got the new calendar stickers from SRM stickers and I was inspired to make a calendar with them. But, I thought it would be fun to make a calendar that would also be a display piece. I used a bird cage to clip the month's calendar tags on it. (You could also just use each tag to create a tag book using the title piece for the cover.)
I designed each tag individually to reflect either a holiday or an event in that month or just the season in general. Here is the calendar hanging in my house: Since it is difficult to see all the detail on the pieces in that picture, I took individual pictures of each month and the title.
