    This is a great way to use up old calendars. You can also use pretty scrap-booking papers or magazines or greeting cards too. These make great gifts and wonderful stocking stuffers too. Tuck a little book into your purse so you can jot down things before you forget. Try making some little books using a theme, such as making all your quilting friends a little book using an old quilt calendar; or use an old knitting calendar for your knitting friends, a children's calendar for the little ones, etc. You will be recycling, upcycling and repurposing all at once!
