File Folder Perpetual Calendars
Created: August 10, 2009
I was made aware of
this project via an online friend. Watched the
video , and was intrigued, so
tried it. I decided to make them half the size so they were more
The first one I made with scrapbook papers and green toned cardstock. The second one is made with hand decorated faux leather technique and beige cardstock with gold parchment accents.
Both are stitched with a simple pamphlet stitch.
This holder has 3 single folios on the left side sewn to the spine with an Olive Green 4 ply waxed linen thread, creating 12 pages, with a perpetual calendar month on each page. The pages were printed and then adhered to the green cardstock. The months were written in with a black Zig marker in my funky style.
The right side also has 3 single folios of green cardstock, blank - ready for adding information or decorating.
It's held closed with an elastic and a large green button.

Inside of the faux leather perpetual calendar.
The faux leather was a technique from Paper transformed by Julia Andrus. I used dark brown cardstock, sprayed with Perfect Ink Refresher on both sides and rubbed it in with my fingers, then crumpled the cardstock until I got the creases I wanted. Ironed on one side, turned it over and rubbed Distress Stamp pads over the high spots (Spiced Marmalade, Aged Mahogany, Frayed Burlap).
It's made with 4 single folios on the left side, sewn into the spine with a gold 4 ply waxed linen thread which is visible and a decorative element. The whole inside and the printed pages are all done with a gold parchment paper. There are lined pages for notes after the calendar pages. On the right side is also 4 single beige cardstock folios, blank, ready for decorating, adding photos or whatever.
It's held closed with a really nice large button.
