I have made this desk calendar the lid come off to store the other months of the year.... I used the Cricut cartridge Art nouveau and elegant edges for my cuts...



I cut this at " 4 ½ and cut four of the
Then layer all four using the layer with the holes for the top on the top layer you want to make a hole in the middle to place your skewer then cut four more for the bottom using the shadow feature on elegant edges


Then cut a strip 2 ½ inch wide by 6 inch for the both. For the top 1 ½ inches wide by 5 ½ making them in a circle to fit on inside each other and fitting on the base and top from the step before. Them cut 4- 1 inch strips making an x making an x with 2 of them for the top and 2 for the bottom. 

 The bird I cut it at 4 ½ inches from the art nouveau cartridge cutting all the layers at 4 ½ inches cutting it once then flipping it then cutting it out again with all the layers the wings I put on pop dots on both sides, between the layers of the circle I glued in a skewer leaving a bit out the end to hot glue in the hole of the lid I also inked the edges of the circle.

The calendar I printed it from a calendar I had on my computer I printed it out on card stock then cut it in to squares then cut another piece of card stock just a little bigger than the calendar piece on two of the corners I made I spilt to slide the corner of the calendar piece into
