Desk Top Calendar – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

2023 Flip Over Desk Calendar New Year Penguin

Welcome to my Corner of the World

HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Once again I enjoyed designing and making my flip over calendar for 2023, with the help of my friend, Elly – while she was visiting from the UK in October. . As I have done for the last few years I am going to be sharing one at the start of each month. This was designed for a stamp camp in early December 2022, we had such fun making them and my ladies have made me promise to do another for 2024

I am changing things a little for this year, I recognise not everyone is into making 3D items so have created a card for each month, using elements from the calendar for that month. .

So today I share, a Happy New Year Penguin with a simple fun fold for the card!
