I started with January using the Ace, then each month follows ... February is 2, March is 3 ... Nov is the Jack and December is the Queen (or King!)
Cut a piece of cardstock or printed paper for the background added the playing card, the mini-calendar printout and a decoration for each month. I've got photos of several months. There is a magnet on the back of the clipboard so it can be put on the fridge or you can hang it by the clip.
I think it's fun. And it uses stuff I have readily at home!

Supplies Used:
* mini clipboard
* playing cards
* cardstock & printed papers (various)
* mini calendar print-out
* various embellishments for each month
