And here is the Safety Pin Calendar, there are 6 - 2" circles, 4 deep, two months per 2" Circle one on the front and one on the back. I print out the 1 3/8" calendar from "The Cutting Cafe" and then cut it out with a 2" punch. These are great to use those little stamps on, I used the "Tapestry " Sea Shell set. I stamped first and then Airbrushed with the Copic Airbrush System and Copic Markers. Sea Blues and Greens on the front and Sand colors on the back. Set eyelets and added jump rings. I use the large Safety Pins, I close it and then I attach the disks to the upper portion of the safety pin not the pin portion (that way they will not fall off and you have plenty of room to fasten where ever it is you are putting it). I then made a charm out of a sea shell and between each disk on the back is small circular abalone charm. Added some ribbon and it is done.
This is the back side of the disks and you can see the shell charms.
This is how it looks fastened to the handle of my bag, but it will fasten inside if that is preferable, I just like it outside where I can find it.
The above is all you need to turn those small shells into a charm. The glue is found at Michael's in the jewelry center, a pair of wire snips, a head pin make sure you get the one with the loop and your shell. Position the head pin into the shell at the bottom so that you can determine where it needs to be cut, you want the loop just sticking outside the bottom, cut. Then position the head pin inside the shell and liberally apply glue, it will need to set up for a good 1 to 1 1/2 depending on the humidity. Then add your jump rings.
close up of calendar and shell charm. Hugs, Sandi
