Paper Love: Recipe Box Perpetual Calendar

Have you seen those cute daily calendar/scrapbook things on pinterest? I loved them when I first spotted them but did not start one as my daily life isn't that exciting. I made one for my sister though and she's been filling in random days with small pieces of daily life (after all it won't matter in 10 years if every day is filled in or not!)

Then I saw an expensive five year calander aimed at cooks - with space to write down what they made or ate that day. I immediately went home and began filling out dates on bundles of index cards and my vintage recipe card box was the perfect home for my perpetual calendar!
