Inexpensive Art

A calendar page + metal scrapbook frame from Michaels at 50% off = $5 total.

I love it!

This particular calendar had so many cute pages that go with my decor, I've thought about making a collage of them on one wall. Maybe that's too busy, too much.

So cute! I think it would look really sweet to go with your idea of making a collage of them! :)

Great idea.. my mother in law always cuts out her calendar pages as well. That is usually one of my gift to her at christmas is a pretty calendar.

I'm thinking it might look cute to cut some of the sections apart and decoupage it on something. I love the page! I collect calendars, then never seem to know what to do with them while they collect dust...

There are so many wonderful callenders out there. I have a hard time picking which one to buy. This is a great idea. I think I may do this.

Thanks

That is exactly what I have done. The ME calendar and Gooseberry Patch has the cutest pictures, I have them cut out and have to get frames for them. I just hate to throw them away.

How Cute! I have been wishing there was a frame that fit calendar pages for years. I just discovered your blog and have been trying to go back through all your archives because I like you and your pictures so much! I don't know why I hadn't found you before, but I am so glad I have now. Have a great week. Twyla

Tell me more about this frame, is it ready-made? Or did you have to order it, if so, was it online?

I tried to look it up on their website and had no luck! I have the same calendar and would love to preserve some of those darling pictures and recipes!

Thanks, and I LOVE your blog...just LOVE it!

I did this when you posted it, and I love this...I got extra frames and have been using them throughout the house for different things: one was I put all my son's ribbons from last year's sports and a certificate of recognition into one with a piece of scrapbook paper behind them as a background.
