Clipboard Calendar for a Swap

Today I wanted to share a clipboard calendar and altered wooden jewelry box I made for my swap partner.  The swap group is called the Secret Squirrel Sisterhood Society Cigar Box Swap over on Facebook.  Our monthly challenge is to alter a Cigar or Wooden Box and this month you were to include a handmade calendar along with your box.  I had a great time with this swap.  I love anything vintage so that is what I tried to do with my projects.

The clipboard is a plain chipboard you can pick up from just about anywhere.  I used scrapbooking papers and embellishments to alter this project.  Each month is held at the top with the clip and I added an envelope on the back to hold the other months.  The calendar can hang in just about any room in the house!!!

Supplies used: calendar Tim Holtz Lost & Found paper stack & rosette trim; Maya Road crochet flower; Recollections bling and flower; other trims from my stash.

I would also like to share the box I created for my partner...

....the inside....

This will also be my show and tell share over at My Romantic Home Blog!  
Thanks so much for reading and commenting!!!
