  5. Use Permanent Dots™ Dot N' Go® to attach embellishments to the calendar sheets. Permanent Dots™ Dot N' Go® are strong enough to handle bulky embellishments and can adhere to any surface (like wood, chipboard, ribbon, cork, etc.). Use embellishments that go with the theme of the month (i.e. snowflakes in January), or use birthday themed embellishments (i.e. gifts and cupcakes).

    Lots of embellishments come with stock adhesive already on them. I have found that for display pieces or things that get handled a lot, stock adhesive just won’t cut it. I always remove stock adhesive and replace it with Glue Dots® or put Glue Dots® right on top of the adhesive that is already there to create a much stronger and longer lasting hold.
