Thanks to Steve Ramsey for this great idea a few years back.
I just completed making 14 calendars for Christmas presents and sales.
They all are about the same in appearance but I wanted to show this one. I took extra time and inlaid a thin mirror between the backing and scrolled out lettering. I super glued the mirror to the back board to hold it in place while assembling. I discovered using MDF for the backboard made cutting the inlay area for the mirror much-much easier.
The 12 disks represent the calendar months. Below the disk a tag is hug with the name and birthday of the individual born during that month.
With the big family we have I used an Excel Spreadsheet to sort all the family members before hanging any tags. I can see a family starting one of these and passing it down through the generations.
Note: The last picture is a calendar I made for my mother a few years ago. All those important to her have a birthday tag under the month they were born. At a quick glance Mom can see who is having a birthday by month and never miss a celebration.
