Regular readers will know that I rarely throw anything away. I haven’t had a wall calendar for a number of years, but I still have quite a few from the past lurking around…
Yup, that is a calender from the year 2000. I wasn’t joking about not throwing things away.
What did I finally decide to make with this calendar? I’m still resolutely not making books, so this isn’t really a book, it’s more of a portfolio. Possibly a book full of pockets. Can you tell I’m clueless as to what to call it?
I made envelopes out of the beautiful calendar pages (I’ve always had a thing for Dali), and then made a cover using another of the pages. There are eight envelopes/pockets in this portfolio, and they are bound into the cover using an accordion style binding.
This was a bit of an experiment for me, and although it took ages to make I’m really pleased with the result. I plan to make more of these in future (yes, I have more calendars stashed away…) and hopefully the future ones will be quicker to make now that I’ve figured out the method!
