Twelve Month Calendar Journal Box

Pin It
Do you journal?  I have tried but just don't seem to finish the books.  I have great intentions where I plan to write every day, just a little something to remember days past. So here's what I came up with.  A Calendar Journal Box.

I made the box using my Ryobi Miter Saw and added the twine handles and stained it with Minwax stain.  I filled the box with 365 file cards and 12 dividers using my Dear Lizzy American Crafts paper. I stamped each date January 1, January 2, January 3 - and so on for all 365 days.

Now for the journaling part.  Each day you can pull that dates card and jot a short something down and stick it back behind the rest of the months cards.  Then continue all month, month after month and then when you finish all 365 days you start over. What's fun is you can look back and see what your note was from last year, and the years past, as you reach that date each year for each of the days of the year.
