Creative Reuse: Photoframe out of Calender !

Nothing is waste if you’ve got the brains and just the right eye to see it! 

I had an old table calender and decided to reuse it as something more useful, for what use is an old calender for.

Viola! This photo frame came into being.

Materials Needed:

  • An old table calender
  • A thin cardboard like material.
  • One black chart paper ( for base)
  • One chart paper of any colour of your choice
  • Quilling strips


The Process

Step 1:


Remove all the pages from the calender.

Step 2:

Step 3:

IMG_20160403_222640After you have covered the calendar, take the thin cardboard that you have and cut a frame border from it of  your choice. Here. I have cut out a geometric shape, kind of like a parallelogram.

Then cover this frame border from the colored chart paper that you, the one you used to cover the back with.

After you have done this, paste this frame on the photo frame base that you prepared from the old calendar from three sides. Leave either right or left side unpasted for photo to slide through.

Step 4:

Arrange and paste them in beautiful design on the photo frame.

If you don’t want to use quilling technique, you can always decorate the frame anyway you want. It’s entirely up to you.

Step 5:


After you have decorated it according to your taste, your beautiful Photoframe is ready now.

Keep crafting.

And remember.. nothing is waste. Reuse, Reduce, Recycle… Save Environment.

  1. Simple but effective! Lovely step by step illustration and instructions as well.
    Also I couldn’t help but notice you would be doing reviews on novels and short stories. I would love a feedback. I will be posting on Monday. 🙂
