I made Bag Book Calendars for Benny, Jer's step-mother, her daughter, Jan, and HER daughter, Karlee, (three generations) as little CHRISTmas gifts this year. We don't exchange gifts, but I want them to know that even though Jerry Sr. is now gone, it doesn't mean that we no longer care about them.

Over a year ago, Jer's step-sister, Jan, who is a preschool teacher (as I was, until recently), saw MY bag book calendar and requested that I make one for her, so it's my desire to make one for them all, each year.

Below are four photos of each calendar book -- of the cover, inside front cover, inside back cover, and the back cover. Every other page just has Top Note die-cuts from decorated paper with a monthly calendar adhered atop.

This first one is Karlee's:

The second book is Benny's:

And, the last book is Jan's:

Here they are, ready to be mailed. I thought they looked SWEET and INVITING!


  1. so cute!--these have been on my to do list for awhile now...maybe next year i'll get them done:)

  2. I must SURELY be the s-l-o-w-e-s-t paper crafter on the globe. From beginning-to-end, a paper bag calendar takes me about 3 hours to complete.

    I'm glad you like them, Lynn!

  3. nope you are not the s-l-o-w-e-s-t paper crafter! you must have forgotten about me lol!

    You really did have a lot of work ahead of you when you decided to make three of them! and you did such a great job, including the wrapping!!
    I am sure they will love them.
