Isn't that Punch Owl just TOO cute? I love it! The pull out drawer could hold post-it notes or sheets of scratch paper, or fill it with candy for a special treat!
The base is So Saffron cardstock and I used Real Red cardstock for layers behind the calendar and the Scallop Trim Borders. I used the floral pattern from Play Date Designer Paper on the top easel portion and the green leaf print in that same DSP for the front of the drawer and the top of the box. The owl is punched from Early Espresso and his vest from a scrap piece of Play Date DSP, too. The pupils in the eyes are Black Mini Brads and I added a little red heart. Hello from Tiny Teacup a la cart stamp is stamped with Early Espresso on Whisper White and punched with the Small Oval, then layered on Real Red Large Oval punch. I punched the branch from Two Step Bird Punch from Old Olive and placed the Owl on it. Then put the entire owl piece on a 2 3/8 Scallop Circle of So Saffron. Last I added the calendar, layered onto Real Red that holds the easel top standing open.
DESKTOP CALENDAR BOX
So Saffron cardstock: 4 1/4 x 8 1/2, score at 4 1/4 & 6 3/8 (card top)
So Saffron cardstock: 4 1/4 x 11, score at 1", 5 3/8", 6 3/8" & 10 3/4" (box shell)

Old Olive cardstock: 4 1/8 x 4 1/8
Assemble the box:
On the 6 1/4 square piece, cut up to the intersecting lines and cut off the corners on a diagonal, this will help insure that you don't have edges sticking up.
Add Sticky Strip to the back of the diagonals and assemble box
Assemble the box shell:
On the 4 1/4 x 11 piece, add adhesive to the 1/4" strip and assemble.
Fold in half at the 4 1/4 score line. Adhere the card top to box shell. Make a mountain fold with the scored flap to form the easel.
Decorate the Old Olive panel and adhere to front of easel form on card.
Add calendar (inside card) so that it holds the easel open!
Decorate front of box, add flower brad for drawer pull. Slide box into box shell.
Place card on top of box shell.
