Dear friends as you may be knowing I love interactive mechanisms and when I saw an amazing Interactive calendar on my blogger friend Weis blog I fell so in love with it.
I wanted to make something subtle and not too lovey dovey for my hubby this valentine and this perpetual calendar to declare love all year round every year seemed just perfect!
The general concept is to avoid flowers in masculine themed gifts but my hubby loves flowers and so I assembled a 4 layered 3 D decoupage flower

I made a lacey heart vase for the red rose using Martha Stewart punches.

The perpetual calendar has 3 panels and the central panel pops out so that its a free standing calendar.
Here is another view to show the dimensional nature of this handmade calendar.
Since the design is not mine I cant share a tutorial but I hope you liked this Interactive calendar idea as much as I did.
