Print calendar 


You can print the calendar on white cardstock
at home or at your local copy store.
If you print at home, select the 'best' print setting 
and 'matte presentation paper'
in your printer settings, 
to ensure that your calendar prints properly.

Have calendar bound
 A copy center can spiral or comb bind your calendar.
You can do also bind the calendar
 yourself with book rings or jump rings.

I used a small punch to make holes in the
calendar and jump rings to bind it.

Add photos to the calendar

I chose to have 4 x 6 photos printed and then
mount them on cardstock,
since I love paper crafting and have a huge supply.
You can also make digital pages with photos
and print them directly onto the calendar page.

Embellish Calendar

I chose to keep embellishments pretty simple
to keep the focus of the pages on the photos.
I used stickers and die cuts to embellish
the calendar pages.
