Turn a Mead pocket calendar into a Passport Cover

Are you looking for a simple, inexpensive gift idea? You won’t believe how easy it is to make this for your favorite book lover!

  1. Buy a Mead pocket calendar. These are available lots of places and only cost a few dollars. I found mine at Big Lots this year. The kitten in the picture is the calendar removed from the plastic cover.
  2. Find an image of a book cover that the person loves online.
  3. Right click and copy the book cover image, then paste it into a wordprocessor.
  4. Resize the image to about 6″ x 7 1/4″ and print it-I used cardstock.
  5. Alternatively, you could right click on the image and “save image as…” to save it to your computer. Then open the image in a photo editor to resize and print it.
  6. Cut out the book cover image and slip it into the plastic cover of the Mead pocket calendar.

This can be used as a passport cover, a checkbook cover, or even as a pocket calendar. Anyone who loves books will appreciate this personalized gift!
