2013 Mini Calendar Printable

My 2013 Mini Calendar Printable craft is ready and waiting! This is such a fun and easy project to complete and you can use it all year on cards and even as a small gift for teachers, co-workers and friends.

You'll need to gather two pieces of scrapbook paper, rubber cement (for making the little tear-off notepad calendar), scissors and one large or two small binder clips.

The paper selection is my favorite part. You can personalize each calendar with a different pattern, style and color for each recipient. Something different I decided to do this year was mount the calendar on a square card so that it can be given as a card and then the card can be used as a stand. Michael's actually had a pack of these cards with envelopes in their dollar bins that worked perfect.

  • Cut out each month on the line
  • Stack the calendars up in order and hold them together with a binder clip (or two)
  • Use the brush on the rubber cement lid to brush a coat of the glue on the top edges of the calendar. Let it dry for 10 minutes or so, and then add another coat or two. The rubber cement forms a binding that lets you tear off each month of the calendar as it passes.
  • Cut one of the pieces of paper into a 5 1/2" square, and the other into a 2 3/4" square. 
  • Using the rubber cement, glue the (last page) of the calendar stack onto the smaller piece of paper. To adhere this to the larger square, I used some of the foam adhesive squares to give the project a little depth.

Glue the project onto the card so that it can be used as a self-standing card to sit on a desk or shelf.

You'll see how simple these are to make. If you want to see last year's post with a little more detail on the instructions, click here.

I have included November and December 2012 so you can start using the calendars a little early if you like. Enjoy... share , Pin... and please link back to my site when you do so (thank you!)sig trans
