DIY 2012 Printable Calendar

This past week I had been looking for a pretty printable calendar, after not having much luck I decided to design my own!  After printing and doing a little crafting with it, I think I like how it turned out!

Click on the image to the left and download it to your computer.  Print 12 of them for your calendar.

*Note: Please use calendar design for personal use only.

    When printed, cut the top so that there is about an inch and a half of extra paper above the days of the week.

    Next I cut a background piece out of canvas paper, but you could use any heavier material.  Then I had fun decorating it with paint, stamps and and other materials.

    You can really do the background anyway. Love patterned paper? Well use patterned paper! Just make it your style!

Using a ruler, place a dot every centimeter across the top of your printed calendar.  Then makes those dots into holes by using a push-pin into a cork board. Go through all 12 stacked papers with the pin.

After your background and holes are finished, position your calendar on the background and sew them together through the holes.  I sewed one way and came back again the other way.  Also, go ahead and write in the dates of each month!

And there you have it, a pretty calendar made by you!  After each month all you have to do is rip the finished page off and start fresh with the one under.

Have a great weekend!
