The calendar base is simples too in just 4 steps!
1. Cut a piece of card 6 by 10 inches (so you can get 2 from a 12x12 sheet, if you want).
3. Fold the two outer edges in towards each other along the score lines (valley folds) and then fold the centre score line in the opposite direction (mountain fold) (see picture #2).
4. Use double sided tape to stick the top edges together, I waited until after I had finished the decorations to do this (see picture #3).
I've made this one into a display stand for some of the earrings I'm taking to the Christmas Fair tonight.
