Newsprint Desktop Calendar Box

Stampin up desktop calendar box set

Ready to jazz up your desk with this desktop calendar box?  I first witnessed this little charmer on the blog of Elizabeth Harris.  She even sent me a supply of the monthly calendars to use :)  Thanks, Elizabeth. 

FOR INQUIRING MINDS:  The calendars can be purchased at

Both Elizabeth and I relied on the "engineering" of Tammy Maxvill and her Fun Paper Candy Desktop Calendar Box Tutorial.

  1. LOVE IT 🙂 (Did you know I am Elizabeth’s upline? 🙂 She is awesome – so very creative too 🙂

  2. Hi Heidi G: I love the look of Real Red with Black and Vanilla so I just went for it 🙂 The new Love Letter Designer Paper has a vintage look and includes Riding Hood Red–exactly what you were thinking. Hugs, M

  3. Mary, what was your thinking on using Real Red instead of Riding Hood Red? I just ordered the Newsprint DP and was surprised by your use of Real Red. I just assumed RHR would be the red that would be more vintage-y looking. Love, love, love the project.

  4. Get out! This is SO cute! Ooooh, I want one…but only if it’s a Mary Fish creation!

  5. SUPER cute. Love those colors together with the “news.”

  9. Absolutely wonderful project! Love the way you used this DP. Thanks for the info and links.

  10. I want one!!! How awesome and now I wish I’d of ordered that paper. If you find out where she got those calendar pages, let us know!!! Happy 4th to you and your family! Hugs,
