It's a coaster box/desk organizer thingy, made with coasters and Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers... This side has the calendar (no duh, right?). The other three sides are:
A dry-erase side (transparency cut same size as coaster and attached over the top of the paper - I tried it and it really works!)
A cork board side... I have some thumbtacks around here somewhere that I'm going to add bling to to use here, but I haven't located them yet - may have to buy more...
A Post-It and flag side... Where are the flags, you're most likely wondering? Yeah, still at the office supply store - I'll buy them when I get my new thumbtacks, I guess. They'll go next to the little bee...
Want to make one of your own? Splitcoast Stampers has complete instructions here. I made a couple of changes. The first one is that I followed Sherry's thought of punching holes in the bottom coaster and looping the ribbon through them, instead of gluing the bottom on:
and I made a divider for the inside. To make the divider, cut 1/4" off the top of two coasters (cover both sides with dp first), then slit one halfway up from the bottom, and the other halfway down from the top, then slide them together and slide the whole unit inside the coaster box. I don't have anything holding them in place, they sort of just stay there on their own. And that's the whole story!
