DIY- Lilly Pulitzer Calendar

Sorry it has been ages since my last blog post! Now that I am officially finished with college (forever!) I will have more time to blog before my Disney Internship. I did a little DIY project with my old Lilly Pulitzer agenda book!

First: Buy a blank 6x6 calendar, most craft stores sell these. I got mine last year when Archivers was going out of business for about $3, but they usually don't cost more than $10. Make sure you don't get any larger than a 6x6 or the edges will be very plain.
Second: Take your monthly agenda pages out of your old Lilly planner. I used my 2012 book I believe. 

 Third: Crop the edges off to make the pages even on the sides. I used my scrapbooking paper cutter to do this. That really helped make the edges smooth and consistent. Try and cut as little as possible off.

Fourth: Measure the length of the agenda page to crop off the extra paper on the top. I saved this paper for future crafts and the cover page!
Fifth: Glue the paper onto the blank portion of the calendar. Make sure to glue each corner well or it will peel over time. I used elmer's scrapbook double sided tape. 

Sixth: Write the dates out onto the calendar. Don't make the mistake I did and write the dates wrong. Luckily I used white out (as noticeable below)

Seventh: For the cover page I took the into page out of my agenda and framed it with the scraps from the cropping on the monthly pages. 

This was a pretty simple project and it only took me about 20-30 minutes! This is a really easy way to re use your Lilly Pulitzer agenda pages. This calendar is also the perfect size for my Disney College Program bulletin board in my room!
