If you're looking for an inexpensive, easy-to-assemble, and USEFUL holiday gift to give this year, this is it! Stampin' Up!'s "Delightful Dates" calendar kit comes with the pre-printed calendar designs, and the page for each month has a decorative pattern on the other side that can be used by the recipient on a scrapbook page, card, or other project! The kit also includes a chipboard easel! I chose to use "Bella Bleu" designer paper on parts of my easel, and I inked the other part with Brocade Blue Craft ink. There's a coordinating stamp set ("Note to Self") for this kit in the Holiday mini catalog, but I just prepped the easel and tied ribbon around the calendar pages for mine. These kits are only $7.95, which makes them an even better gift choice! Note: If you didn't put the wing-looking embellishment (which was punched out from the easel as you can see) on the front, it would fold flat and fit inside Stampin' Up!'s brand new Magnetic Gift Box (shown on p. 33 of the Holiday mini).
