Watch this tutorial to see how to shape the plumerias.

Instructions: The measurements of the calendar used are, 1 1/13" x 2" 14/16"( 4.8 cm x 7.3 cm ). This calendar card base measures 5 5/16" x 5" 14/16" when folded flat.

 Start by cutting the base card 5 5/16" x 10 9/16" ( 26.8 cm x 13.4 cm ). Make two folds of 2 5/16" ( 6 cm ) to make hill and valley folds to form the foot of the card. Cut a slider to measure 2 1/16" x 4 1/2" ( 5.1 x 11.6 cm ) Cut the card front to 5 4/16" x 3 and 13/16". (13.4 cm x 10 cm ) The matting for all pieces are cut at 1/16" ( 2 mm) smaller all sides. 

The orange / yellow matting design paper is found in the paper Tropical Paradise. Ink all the edges of this paper when cut to size. The card front design paper is also found in the collection printed a little longer so you will need to trim the length to fit. Ink the edges of this paper with the Green bough distress ink. Distress the edges of this paper also with the paper-distressing tool. Adhere all the matting papers to the card base with double sided tape or clear drying glue. The card front is adhered with 3d foam tape or double dots. With the orange / yellow design paper make a matting a little larger than the calendar, ink it with wild honey distress ink. Adhere this paper and the calendar to the right side of the card foot. Embellish the card front to the left of the calendar with plumerias and leaves, keeping in mind you need to be able to tear the calendar months away as the year goes on. To finish add the half pearls and stickles to the flowers and leaves
