Calendar Gift Bag DIY

Hello Everyone,
Today I have DIY that you could keep making month after month (lol).

If you like saving calendars (like I do) but never know what to do with them once the year is up, then this DIY might be for you.  Basically all I did was go through some of my old calendars and pick out some calendar pictures, that I though would make good gift bag covers.

Yes you heard me right, were turning calendar pictures into gift bags!  Anybody else excited?

Lets get crafty!

Supplies
Old Calendar  
Gift Bag
Mod Podge
Paintbrush
Scissors
Pencil
String (Optional)


Step 1: Layout your gift bag on top of your calendar picture and trace around it. Once your tracing is done, cut your calendar picture to size.


Step 2: Apply some Mod Podge to the front of your gift bag and lay your calendar picture on top. Press the two together and set it aside to dry.

Once your bag is dry, your ready to fill it up with some goodies and give it away!


I added a little black and white string to the top of the bag to hold the handles together but thats totally optional.

What do you think?

  1. This is an awesome idea, Katie! I've got an Angry Bird calendar from last year I've been saving but haven't done anything with. ;) I love your My Fair Lady bag, I've seen that movie a lot.

    I wonder if you could make the actual bag out of a calendar. It would be smaller of course, but maybe doable. :)

    1. Thank you so much! I love Audrey Hepburn in general but this poster art from My Fair Lady has always been one of my favorites.

      I love your idea of turning the whole calendar picture into a gift bag. Those bags would be super cute!!!
