Aren’t these beautiful? They are calendars. Paper is carefully laser cut so that as you pull off pages of the calendar, a beautiful little scene is revealed. Some of them have LED lights in them, too.
The calendar pages are laser cut to tear away carefully, leaving a 3-D sculpture. It includes a transparent box to hold the pad. Once the sculpture is revealed, the box turns over to create a display case. All of the pieces come come in a gift box.
LED lighting reveals the inner details of these unique works of art.
There are a lot of different variations. I especially like the ones that have a detailed Asian scene.
As you pull away the pages of this calendar, you gradually reveal the scene with the tree and mountain, then the pagodas.
Next the underwater scene is displayed, complete with lily pads and koi fish.
The calendar begins as just a block pad of paper. Most of them lay on the desk horizontally, like this.
Some of the calendars are designed to stand up, like this. Then the 3D scene is gradually displayed as you pull off each page.
Look at all the detail! You can see the colors of the pages. Each feature in the design stands out as the scene comes into view.
Some come with a presentation style give box and stand on a base.
The date is displayed on the calendar in different ways. You can see how deep the cuts are, so you won’t accidentally destroy the design as you pull the pages away.
After all of the dates and pages are pulled away, you have a finished piece. See all the detail in this pagoda?
This pagoda 3D calendar has 3D lights and a display case. Around it are some of the pages that have been pulled off to reveal the pagoda.
This is the way this date is cut into the calendar.
There are a lot of different scenes. Many of them come in a choice of colors.
Some are WAY more detailed than others. This scene, with a dragon curled around a pagoda palace, is just amazingly detailed.
The tear-offs are very deep. You won’t accidentally tear off the whole sheet, ruining the final design.
Some of the pages have extra little details.
Some pages have an additional little piece of artwork to enjoy throughout the year. Not every calendar has these extra features.
Other calendars have laser cut bookmarks on some of the pages, where the design has enough space for them to fit.
Most of the pages that tear off are just the part that needs to be removed to make the design.
Many of the calendars are designed to be lighted from inside. The base holds batteries and has a switch to control internal LED lights.
These calendars are beautiful all year long. Even before the first page is removed, the presentation is just lovely. Not every calendar comes with every feature.
