Homemade Gelli® Arts Calendar with Giovanna Zara

Hello everyone, Giovanna here today! We’re fast approaching the end of the year and what better time to start to make some hand-made (and useful) gifts? In this video, we’re making together a colorful, gel printed, calendar with its stand: on every month I feature a different technique using the gel printing plate so it also shows how versatile your Gelli® plate is. 

This can be an idea on how to use all the piles of gel prints you have at home: with leftovers prints I’ve made the month of December and embellished the stand made out of a cereal box. You can download a 2023 calendar at the end of this post and print at home.

Grab a cub and enjoy the video ☺

GelliArts® 5”X7” gel printing plate

GelliArts® Minis-Octagon, Quatrefoil, Diamond gel printing plate

-GelliArts® Flower Stencil
