If you’re like me, this printable calendar is the perfect project for celebrating crafting throughout 2014. Each month features a happy supply (pencils! glue! glitter!) that can be colored in or simply left in black and white (ooh, modern!).
What You Need
- Printable 2014 Crafty Calendar (download here)
- Card stock
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Washi tape or baker’s twine and hole punch
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 work
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.
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.
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!
Wrap up some crayons to go with this 2014 Crafty Calendar and give it as a gift, or just keep a bundle of crayons close by so you can color in each month as it comes around.
Have a happy, crafty year!Related
