I LOVE how this turned out. It is one of a kind art and was sooo simple! The great thing about it is the flexibility, you could use anything from calendars, to antique prints, to your kids art work (or photos, duh). And of course you could make more than twelve, or different sized frames. When you put them all in the same frame they come together.
1 Calendar with artwork you like
12 frames (mine are from Dollar Tree, 4x6)
Pen or pencil
|I found this calendar at Michaels last summer. I loved the vintage style artwork, and it was only a buck!|
Remove the glass pane from one of the frames. This will be your template for cutting the artwork. Simply move the glass around the page until you find a section that you think is pretty :) Hint: Having words or images perfectly centered can be a bit boring, so try some variety and have some parts "cut off".
Once you've found a section you like just trace around the glass and cut it out.
I ended up cutting out more than I would need, then I just chose my top faves ;)
Once you have 12 that you like just pop them into the frames.

Then play around with the order and placement. I tried to be sure that the color schemes were evenly spread out. Once you've got that down hang em up! Voila!
