Hanging Heart From Helen Hiebert’s 2017 Twelve Months of Paper Calendar

While traveling, I am not able to make February’s paper project from Helen Hiebert’s 2017 Twelve Months of Paper Calendar. There just wasn’t enough room to pack everything. I purchased both the calendar as well as the custom paper pack, so it’s going to be fun to make this once I get back home.

Hanging Heart, February’s paper project from Helen Hiebert’s 2017 Twelve Months of Paper Calendar.

This is Helen’s photo of the hanging heart she made. The instructions for making this are included in her calendar, one project for each month of the year.

This is very similar to the hanging hearts I shared in December 2014 and February 2015.

These paper Valentine Heart Ornaments are made from polka dot scrapbook paper. My instructions are my blog post: DIY Hanging Paper Heart Ornaments

Paper Star From Helen Hiebert’s 2017 Twelve Months of Paper Calendar

While traveling, I am not able to make January’s paper project from Helen Hiebert’s 2017 Twelve Months of Paper Calendar. There just wasn’t enough room to pack everything. I purchased both the calendar as well as the custom paper pack, so it’s going to be fun to make this once I get back home.

Paper Pop Up Trees from Helen Hiebert’s 2017 Twelve Months of Paper Calendar

I purchased Helen Hiebert’s 2017 Twelve Months of Paper Calendar earlier this fall. The first month is December 2016, so it’s really a 13 month calendar along with a paper project for each month including instructions and templates.

In addition to the calendar, I also purchased a custom paper pack which includes paper and materials for each project. I haven’t used my custom paper for my Pop Up Tree yet as I want to play around with different possibilities first.

I made the light green tree first. I just used green copy paper. I used a wrapping paper sample for the green and silver tree. I also put a gold bead on the top and strung gold threat down the inside folds.

I will be demonstrating this Paper Pop Up Tree in my studio at the Ashland Art Center during the First Friday Art Walk this Friday. It’s a fun project, great for adults as well as kids. I will have my calendar there so you can take a look at it and the projects in case you want to purchase one for a gift, or for yourself.

This is December's calendar page.

Studio Snapshot – 2017 Lotus Flower Calendar

My 2017 Paper Lotus Flower Calendar is finally finished. I got busy and didn’t make one for 2016, but I really missed having it sitting my my desk. So, I made sure I got one made for next year.

My 2017 Paper Lotus Flower Calendar features a photo of a different lotus flower for each month.
