The Twelve Months of Paper Calendar/How-To Book
Join our paper community and create fun and beautiful paper designs with the Twelve Months of Paper, a combination how-to book and calendar.
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.
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).
Once you've got your calendar in hand, I invite you to join me on-line for the annual 25 Days of Paper Blog Marathon, which takes place December 1-25. Sign up for the blog and learn more about:
- Cool paper companies
- Fun paper products
- Resources for papers, tools and techniques
- An opportunity to share your projects with others
Rewards #4 and #5 are geared towards making the projects with your friends. Gather a group of friends, neighbors or colleagues (how about your book club or pen pals?) and make the projects together!
Invite me to join you and I'll bring everything we need and guide your through making some of the projects (Reward #6, within a 5-hr drive from Vail, CO please; if you're interested in flying me further, we can discuss).
Add-Ons: Kickstarter allows only one pledge per person, but it can be for any amount. If you would like to add anything to your reward package (additional calendars, Custom Paper Packs, etc., just contact me and we'll figure out the total before you pledge). Questions? Just ask! firstname.lastname@example.org
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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
