An Open Heart Calendar with drawer.

Hello and welcome back....

Todays calendar has a little extra something as you will see....

Basically its an Easel card on top of a box with a drawer, you will see several different versions of this on Pinterest and the net. This one is very easy to make and can be a lot of fun to give as presents.

The card for the box outer is 5" x 11", scored on the long side at 1", 5", 6" and 10", then scored on the short side at 1" , this will give you a box with one opening.
The drawer is 7 7/8" x 7 7/8" and scored at 1" and 2" on all sides, once assembled this will fit inside the box, you will need to some kind of handle on the drawer to open it, I used a large Antique Brad.

The Easel part is 4" x 8" and is scored along the long side at 4" and 6", fold along the score lines and stick to top of box. I put a mat onto the base before sticking on the calendar. Then I decorated a panel with the stamp set An Open Heart and matted it onto a piece of Soft Suede card before attaching it to the Easel card.

The drawer can hold a Post-It note pad, small pen and small pencil, or it could hold paperclips and drawing pins, great for use on a desk or by the telephone for taking messages.

Being an easel card on top means that it will fold down so you can pop it in the post fairly easily.

I hope you like todays calendar pop back tomorrow for a different one...
