DIY Shadow Box Frame Calendar

Do you have a calendar for 2018 yet? Hi friends. Dana Tatar here today sharing a functional home décor piece. I spent the last couple weeks of December in a vacation haze. I wasn’t really sure of the date or the time many days. Now that the New Year is here, I need to get back on track. I put together a colorful wall calendar to help stay organized.

Step 4: Add the year to the frame. Use a number die to cut the year 2018 from a piece of 3D Foam Creative Sheet from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. Remove the liner, sprinkle with embossing powder, and apply heat to set. Alternatively, use the craft foil sheets included in the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit to create metallic numbers.
