Shabby Chic Perpetual Calendar

Hello Friends!!
Heather here and today I would like to share with you a Perpetual Calendar that I created using Gina's Chipboard and some fabby ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I used some digital papers that I designed to cover all of the pieces.  I covered all the insides of the base with paper.  Then glued it together, and then applied paper to the outside. Trim excess paper with an x-acto knife.  I glued Chloe Lace to just the top edges (please refer to photo below).

I used embossing medium and tinsel gold to emboss all the corners and the and edges of the base.

I also embossed the words and base part of the label.  I covered one side of each of the tags with one of my digital papers as you can see below.  Then I trimmed the edges with an x-acto knife.  Then I applied paper to the other side, trimmed them and then inked the edges with Frayed Burlap.  I applied paper to my label top in the same manner, and then the base was embossed.  On the back of the label base I added some Candi Fix it Foam Tabs.

Here is a look at the tags finished below.  I used Juliet LaceMoss green LeavesCotton Candy Baker's Twine,  Deep Ivory Mulberry Roses, and Baby Pink Mulberry Roses,

I added Juliet Lace and Cotton Candy Baker's twine as well as a button with a cotton candy bow to my number pieces.  Martha's yard, Fauna, and Cheeky Pink Glitters were used on the edges of all of my pieces.

Here is a look at it from the side.  I used the Corners which I embossed on both sides of my Calendar base.  The Bow it All tool was used with Pink Salmon Seam Binding to create the double bow on the front.

I have not decided yet on the words that I will be using on the front, so I left it blank for now.
Thank you for visiting Really Reasonable Ribbon today!!
