      Small eyelets like that are sold many places. You'll probably find them with scrap booking type supplies.

    This is a great idea. I have purchased the Boyds Bear calendars for several years ( I am a bear collector) I cut out the images on the back page.....It shows all the months on the back. I cut them out, attach them to magnetic vinyl and us them as magnets on the fridge for "notes to myself". Each picture is the month on the calendar so I can change them out. I have also given them away as a little something extra in the gift bag or box.

    For years I have used last years Christmas cards for name tags, usually trying to "match" the card images to either the paper or the recipient. Also a quick reflection on last years messages.
