Video - New Year's Card Easel Calendars, Two Variations

Publish Date: 

I always get so busy for the holidays that New Year's cards are challenging to get out before the first of the year.

I've been managing to create calendars each year instead, that way I can get them delivered early in Jan and I don't feel so "late".

This year as a pre-emptive strike I purchased 10x mini 2023 tear off calendars in October from a friend (link to her mini calendars down in the supplies list).

I figured if I already had these on hand I would be more likely to make them and this year I actually mailed them in plenty of time to arrive befor the first of the year.

There are so many Pinterest pins for desktop easel tear off calendars that I am going to list the two final dimensions I came up with. I also include my previous years' calendar projects below in case this style of calendar isn't the best for you. 

Full A2 size easel card.

Tent card base- 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2"
Easel is a separate piece of CS - 4 1/4" x 2 1/2" - scored on the short side at 1/2", 1 1/4" and 2" - the two end scores in one direction and the middle the opposite to form a "W" as specified in the video.
   *What I did not like about it was that I had to use so much extra card stock to create the base.


This one part easel style card is what I call the "squatty" easel card:

Tent card base - 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 4 1/2", 5 1/4", 6", 10 1/2". (flip to score the 5 1/4" to create your "W", all other scores are the other side - see video)
