You’ve seen these bubble wrap calendars, right?

Everyone loves to pop bubble wrap! And this calendar lets you do it every. single. day. But the original Bubble Calendar is 4 feet long {who has wall space for that!?} and really isn’t very pretty. So let’s make our own!

Supplies:
Large bubbles bubble wrap
Scissors
Glue
Calendar Templates
Printer
Copy paper or card stock

First, download my calendar templates.

2014:

2015:

Print each one out on 8.5″ x 11″ copy paper or card stock.

You’ll need large bubble wrap (about 1.25″ bubbles):

Capture

Cut or tear off a section larger than your paper.

Apply glue around the sides and bottom of your paper.

Stick your bubble wrap onto the paper, making sure to match bubbles up with the numbers.

Cut the bubble wrap so it’s flush with the edges of the paper.

cutting Cut the top above the numbers (you can follow along the chevron print to make sure its even)

Apply glue under the bubble wrap between the chevron print and the numbers.

Press down along the glue and you’re done!

    This is a great idea. And so cute when finished. Did you happen to make templates for 2015 that you would be willing to upload? Thanks Melissa

      Thanks Melissa! I think I actually did but I need to look them over and make sure they’re right :) We’ll be publishing a holiday guide with gift ideas and this will be included, at that time I’ll update it with 2015. I’ll reply when that is up, should be the next couple of days!
