Make a Project Every Month beginning in December 2016!

The calendar is filled with fun paper projects. Every page features a step by step photos and easy-to-follow instructions, an interesting paper quote, and a list of materials and tools you'll need to complete the project.

This is a 9" x 12" wall calendar, and there's plenty of room for your notes on each day of the month.

The Deluxe Calendar Package

The deluxe package (#3) includes a curated collection of unique papers from around the world, plus all of the materials you need to complete the projects (beads, bamboo skewers, book board, balsa wood and three battery-operated tea lights to make your lanterns glow). Most projects take 30 minutes or less to complete, and you probably already have all of the tools you’ll need to complete each project (cutting mat, scissors, craft knife, glue, etc).

THANK YOU

Thank you for supporting my project! Your contribution will help pay for the photography, design and printing costs. I look forward to spending the Twelve Months of Paper with you!

Risks and challenges

My challenge is to get people involved with the limitless possibilities of paper worldwide and grow my community of makers. Other than that, this project has very little risk.

The layout is complete and the designer is getting the files ready to ship the printer here in Colorado. I have over 25 years of experience working with paper and writing books that have been published. I've written how-to books about paper crafts including: Playing with Paper, Playing With Pop-Ups, Paper Illuminated, The Papermaker's Companion and Papermaking with Garden Plants & Common Weeds. This project will be a great companion piece to those books.
