Step 1
Print the cal­en­dar pages onto card stock and cut out each month. I like to use a paper cut­ter to get straight edges, but scis­sors will workFun Printable Coloring Book Calendar For 2014 (all you need is a little washi tape!)

Step 2
Start­ing with Jan­u­ary and Feb­ru­ary, lay the cards for two months next to each other, leav­ing a tiny gap of about a 1/16 inch. Use Washi tape to join the pieces together. Repeat this process until all the cards are connected.

Step 3
Flip the cal­en­dar over and add tape to the backs of the seams. This will help cre­ate lit­tle hinges so you can dis­play the calendar.

Step 4
Fold your cal­en­dar like an accor­dion, creas­ing the seams to rein­force the folds. Stand your cal­en­dar up along a desk or coun­ter­top, or fold so that past or future months are tucked behind the present one.

Instead of mak­ing a stand-up cal­en­dar, you can punch a hole in the top of each card (a Crop-A-Dile will punch them all at one time!), then tie a loop of baker’s twine through for hanging!
