|Artist, Laurel, at Work|
One of our many traditions is to make calendars to give away at Christmas. Shown at left are photos from last year--last year on December 14! Ack! We're going to get an earlier start this year.
After printing out the grids (you can find 2013 printables here), punch two holes at the top and then use ring-clips to bind the sheets together. (Ribbon or sturdy twine would also work for binding.) Then, add another hole at the bottom, for hanging the calendar.
Now you can personalize the calendar with your recipients' special dates, and add artwork to each spread to make the calendar a treasured keepsake.
Included in the file you'll find a cover sheet, 12 pages of month-grids (numbers are filled in for you!), and a hole-punching guide sheet. This last sheet may be printed on the backs of the other sheets to serve as a frame for your artwork (see photo of Laurel).
I suggest printing to card stock. Bond paper is too translucent.
Have fun! I'd love to see what you make, so feel free to leave me a link in the comments.
