How this works is, you print out all 5 pages of the pdf I recommend using card stock. Cut out all of the days of the month and the days of the week, decorate them anyway you like. Then use the background papers to glue them down any way you would like. There is no right or wrong way, this is where your own creativity comes into play. I have started inking the edges of mine and will probably use some stamps and maybe stickers (I haven't decided yet :) ). I want to go ahead and put this up instead of waiting until I have mine complete so that you can use yours for August. If it works well I will try to get Septembers up soon. If you like this project and complete it I would love to see a picture! You can send those to firstname.lastname@example.org please add august project to the subject line if you share yours.
