I actually started this project a while ago (as you can tell from the retired DSP, really miss these papers and colours) after seeing so many on SCS but was missing the key tool to put it together but now I have it :) This is a card organiser and birthday book all in one. It's a fantastic reference to organise myself for all the birthdays during the year but would make a lovely present for someone. It is super easy to make too. All you need is a pack of your favourite DSP paper (including 2 of the cardboard inserts from the back, hope you keep these, very handy indeed) Select six of your favourite sheets. For each one you are going to first of all score it 4" from the bottom then fold up. With it folded you are then going to score it down the middle at 6" and fold in half back the other way with the pockets on the outside. So what you have created is two pockets on either side with dimensions 8" x 6" for each page. Repeat this for all six sheets and arrange in preferred order. For the covers, I have cut 2 pieces of card from the back of the DSP packs 8-1/4" x 6-1/4" but you make these even bigger if you wanted, it just looks nicer if they are slightly larger than your pages. Then I have covered them in DSP front and back. Finally attach your calendar pages and bind together and decorate. If you would like more detailed instructions and the calendar pages, see here. I will definitely be making some more of these, stay tuned.
