What To Do with old Calendars { RECYCLE QUICK TIP #10 }

Hello there,

I just realized it’s been ages since my last recycle quick tip.

Last year I was lucky to win one of Annette’s calendars. Well 2016 is over and I really thought the calendar was too cute to just hand it over to the trash bin. So: What to do with old calendars? I asked myself.

While I was writing down my goals – one being to write birthday cards to every person this year as I have been doing back in 2015 – an idea struck me.

Why not make postcards…

Well the how to is too easy but still here it is:

  1. find an old postcard for measurements
  2. get out a craft knife and cutting mat
  3. Figure out what part of the calendar you want to use
  4. cut away What to do with old calendars
  5. draw the backside – remember to meet legal requirements, you don’t want your card to be returned to you.
    Here you find German requirements.
  6. write postcard and make someone happy

Well that’s what I did with my calendar. I also have a couple nice photo calendars which will be put into frames.

What your you doing with old calendars? Let me know in the comments.

Happy Wednesday,

  1. Hi Tobia,

    that is a real nice idea. :D I do not have any calendar since I live in Lisbon. I have only a small storage in my room, and we are not allowed to decorate the walls. It is, as I got informed “damage others stuff on purpose”.

    Lovely greetings

    1. Oh wow. But maybe you can use those sticky nails from Tesa. I just got some because I am too lazy but haven’t tried yet.
      Great day to you
      Tobia
