Here's a little calendar that I made using some K & Co patterned paper and a little coathanger that I purchased at a scrapbook convention last year. First, I created a pattern for the dress and cut out the blue floral print for a vintage look. Next, I used a Martha Stewart punch to add layers of lace to the sleeves, apron and petticoat. After that, I inked everywhere and glued all pieces together. I painted the dress and apron with Ranger Crackle Paint (clear) for an antique look. While the crackle paint was drying, I downloaded a free mini calendar from here: http://sites.google.com/site/catscreativeplace/Home/download-freebies
After cutting all 12 calendar pages I stapled them to the dress, wrote "2011" for a title, added the flowers and button and hung the little dress on the hanger.  VOILA!
