Calendar instructions

I have had some emails and requests for the measurements for this perpetual calendar.  So not to disappoint here it is!
I found this cute little note pad holder at TJ Maxx.  Although I liked it...I bought it to alter it.
The box part measures 2 x 4 inches and 2 1/2 inches tall. 
Now, we need to cut some chipboard pieces that will stagger in the box.  The pieces with the months measures 3 3/4 x 6 1/4.  There are six pieces for the month with a month on the front and back.
The days of the week measurement is 3 3/4 x 5 1/4.  To let it all fit in the box without to much wiggle room I made five of those pieces.  So, two of them have front and back days.
The numbers were just a little trickier.  There are 14 of these pieces.  They measure 1 7/8 x 4 1/4.  
You will need 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 one time and then an extra 1 2 3 and 0.  
This will allow you to have enough numbers to create dates between 01 and 31.
I just put seven pieces on each side.  
I decorated the box and the chipboard pieces with Teresa Collins Tell Your Story line.  LOVE LOVE LOVE the fun colors!  Bre has taken this little piece over and has it in her room on her desk. 
The calendar months, days and numbers were cut out from my Cricut Mini.  Love that machine.  I like being able to work on my computer in Cricut Craft Room.  Hope this helps out those who were interested! Have fun creating!
