My name is Diane


and I'm a hoarder.....there I've said it, I hoard everything and anything I think I can be crafty with. So when I had finished wrapping my christmas presents with wide wired ribbon I had bought the year before in the sales, I knew I could use the empty cardboard reels......


 Easy to make calendar with stand.  Just cover the reel with paper and a pencil, cut two circles of card covered with pattern paper and glue one either side of pencil, then glue pencil in stand. Punch butterflies out of pattern paper using the Fiskars Squeeze Butterfly punch, add round circle. Two butterflies together and some ribbon round bottom of stand, a ring of jems round top of stand and gems in middle of each butterfly, then just add calendar.

This is one of my makes for the Fiskarettes Fiskars FB page. it's a great page for inspiring projects from the team. My term ends at the end of January and the new team will take over bringing more fresh ideas for you !!

 Check the page out HERE and why not share your makes with us , we would love to see them !!

hugs Diane xx
