What to do with an old calendar

Have you had a calendar, outdated, that you just don't want to throw away?  Let me give you an idea.  Don't throw it away.  Re-purpose!  Re-use-I took my hubby's 2011 Star-wars calendar, and created a compendium of layouts.  Yes!!!  With such a calendar... very masculine itself, I decided to cover the section where the days are display, the bottom part of each (2 page) section.

Everybody personalize calendars nowadays, right.....well... it's something similar,only that we are using an old calendar.  One that for sure you will love to hang on your craft room.  This way you can continue to enjoy the calendar image and your layout.    It's a win win activity. ;-)

So, what you need is that old calendar you love so much, cover the calendar section with paper, it's close to a 12 x 12.  and create your layout there.  Do not detach the pages.  You'll still keep the image on the upper page, (which is what you want).  You can either make a book about the same theme on the calendar or different topics like I did, everything about him, birthdays itself.  This is a calendar that's never outdated. Timeless.   Don't you just love it?

This is my idea on what to do with an outdated calendar that I refuse to trow away, please feel free to be creative!!!!  Here are some of my pictures.  If you like it..leave me some love, ehhh?

 I kind of add some stickers on tags to that little extra

 I printed some images of different planets, from the movie and then accommodate it in the corners, so the tags can be inserted.

 This paper flowers where hand made from brown paper bags, and painted using coloring chalk.

 The last page with my image so he don't ever forget me.  Timeless love!!!
 I made these flower sprays using the cold porcelain.  The purple and black flowers where cut usign my slice machine.  The flowers card.
