How to Make a Wooden Block Calendar With Stampin Up

Save

Wooden block calendars, or perpetual calendars, are crafted with every possible combination of months and dates to use them all year. Stampin Up is a registered trademark rubber stamp company that sells specialized rubber stamps. You can either make your own blank wooden block perpetual calendar or purchase one.

Things You'll Need

  • Blank wooden perpetual calendar
  • 120-grit sandpaper
  • Paint and brush
  • Stampin Up small number stamps 0-8
  • Stampin Up small letters set A-Z
  • Stampin Up stamp pads in the colors of your choice
  • Make or purchase a wooden blank perpetual calendar. There are instructions in the Resources section, or you can search online. Sand the calendar smooth, and glue the back and sides together as per the instructions. You now have two 2-inch square cubes and three ¾ inch x 4 inch long rectangles.

  • Paint and decorate the calendar pieces, and let them dry.

  • Select the Stampin Up numbers set. Each number should be smaller than 2 inches to fit on the cube. Dip the number stamp in the stamp pad and press the number onto one side of the cube to stamp the number. One cube should have the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

  • Repeat the number stamping onto the second cube. The numbers should be 0, 1, 2, 6, 7 and 8. The 6 may be turned upside down to be a 9. Let the ink dry. Now the two date blocks are done.

  • Label the rectangular month blocks January through December. Use the Stampin Up small alphabet set to stamp out the month's name on each long side of the block. It does not matter what order the month name is stamped. You may want to practice stamping on scrap paper before applying it to the block. Abbreviating the month can speed the stamping time. Let the ink dry.

  • Assemble the calendar. Put the three month rectangular blocks on the bottom of the perpetual calendar frame, with the current month facing outward. Position the two date blocks on top of the month blocks, with the current date facing outward. Change the date as needed.
