Calendar Pieces Storage

I was positive that I had shared these pictures with you all, but apparently in the craziness of packing and moving it didn’t happen. I won’t claim to be the genius behind the idea. I have to thank Carisa at 1+1+1=1 for her inspiration that got me motivated to clean up my scattered pieces.

All of the weather squares, numbers and coins from our Morning Calendar board were previously just dropped into a 6” x 6” plastic envelope {these are extra envelopes from Close to My Heart stamp sets}and dumped onto the table when we needed to find a new piece, etc… This new arrangement has me breathing a big ol’ sigh of relief.

I cut 6” x 6” squares from cardstock, laminated them {are you surprised?} and then spaced out velcro dots to attach the pieces to the squares. Since I have a plethora of velcro thanks to my bulk purchase, it wasn’t difficult to spare a few pieces {grins}.


Once the pieces were all attached to the cards, I slid them back into their envelopes and then dropped them into our calendar bin {from Ikea}.


Ahhh…sweet relief! :)

You can download all of my Calendar and Morning Board printables from my website. I also have links there to a few other ladies who have put together more free printables to use with your kids!

Additional Resources:

~ Scotch laminator ~ this is the laminator I use. I love mine so much I bought a spare {sad, but true}.

~ Velcro in BULK. I purchased the 3/8” velcro dots from Textol Systems but have also found larger coins {1/2” and 5/8”} at even better prices from Feiner Supply {make sure you buy the front and back of the dots!}

  1. I am preparing to start homeschooling my children and I am so excited! Thank you for putting so much time and energy into sharing what you do with everyone! I am wondering if you know of a place or have an affiliate link to purchase the 6×6 plastic envelopes?

    • hmmm…I just used them from leftover stamp sets. You might be able to use something like one of those accordian file folders {kind of like a coupon folder} and that way you could use a full sized piece of paper as well. Does that make sense?
