I am a keeper, I like knowing dates and having diaries, keeping little bits and pieces of life...so I decided to make a calendar book. But not just any calendar book - this one is going to keep a special record for me.

To make this cutie I started the Fun With Pockets Template from The Cutting Cafe. Instead of folding the edges of the pocket I cut them off and just used the front and back, making the pocket my book cover and back. I then printed the Mini Colored Calendar Cards on colored cardstock and cut them out, leaving an approx 1 inch edge on the left side. I scored all lines at the edge of my Calendar Cards so my book would fold easily. I hole punched the cards and fit them into my "pocket" and tied them in with ribbon.
Once you have your book formed, embellish away. I made a book mark on the inside to mark the month and added a pocket to the back cover of my book. I also hole punched the front and back cover and added a big brad to hold my book together when not in use.
This project was so easy to make. I think I'll whip up a few extra for family and friends who are readers. It would also be great to make a child's version so you can keep up with how many books your little reader completes this year.
