DIY photo calendar

Turn memories into a decorative feature

A photo calendar is a fantastic way of capturing your favourite images from a recent holiday or special party, or simply for recording beautiful moments from the year just gone. It’s also a really easy craft idea: you simply select your favourite photos, print them out and glue them on. When it comes to creative decorations for your calendar, edding gel rollers are the perfect pens for the task. Metallic shades show up amazingly well on dark-coloured paper – as does white, of course. White also works beautifully when highlighting individual letters or adding little sketches and decorative hand lettering to create an amazing overall effect. The photos in our calendar show fun times with a new four-legged addition to the family. And don’t forget that photo calendars also make a fabulous gift idea for Christmas!
