Because I’m a Harry Potter nerd, I came across this beautiful, free, downloadable 2017 calendar with super cute Harry Potter watercolour characters at The Cottage Market.


I loved the watercolours, but didn’t really want a calendar (partly because wall calendars aren’t really my jam and partly because I wanted something that I could use beyond 2017). Then I noticed the bookmark-shape of their “tower” image of all the calendar pages and got my mash-up idea.


I downloaded the individual month calendar files, cropped the images to be just the characters (without the Month and dates below), got rid of the text at the top, created a background that looked similar to the aged parchment look, put four on a page, warmed up my laminator, and… Ta da!
