Hello everyone! I have a 3D project to share today! Desktop Cube Calendar! It can be a great gift to give during the new year or just some happy craft time alone or with your kids!
It was quick and easy to adhere the stickers to the cubes but the dimensional stickers I used ended up making one of the cubes taller than the others:
So I turned to my trusty stamps! You can see clearly on this kraft/white version that I made my own cubes (find my 2-min video tutorial here and original post here, using the exactly same mesurements as stated in the video but close the bottom with an extra piece of 2×2 paper instead of leaving it open.)
1. 2″ craft cubes or cardstocks for making your own (tutorial as linked above)
2. Stickers (flat ones recommended, make sure you have at least 5 As) or stamps.
3. Cardstock and/or patterned paper.
4. A scoring board (for the base)
How to make the base
On scor-pal: Place a full sheet of letter sized paper (8-1/2″ x 11″) against the top left corner of your scoring board then score lengthwise at 1/2″, (shift the paper 1/8″ to the right) score at 2-3/4″, 4-1/4″, 5-3/4″, 7-1/4″, and 8-3/4″, (shift the paper back to against the top left corner then) score at 10-3/4″. Mountain fold all lines and adhere both ends down to make the base.
Tips on the cubes
1. Month Cube: two month on one side as shown in my samples.
2. Number Cube 1 – put down the following numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
3. Number Cube 2 – put down the following numbers: 0, 1, 2, 6, 7, 8 (6 will double as 9)
4. Week Day Cube – Put Saturday and Sunday on one side or use an “M”/”W” for both Monday and Wednesday and put one day on each side. I used: M (W), T, Th, F, SA and SU.
Of course, I’m not the genius who came up with this awesome idea, you can download a printable version of the calendar here on Canon’s site! My handmade version is original though! haha!
I hope that you enjoy today’s post and actually give the calendar a try! It is fun!
Happy New Year!
