5 Minute Calendar by OZZ DT Jennifer Priest

The new year is a good time to create all the calendars you need to keep track of (or break) your New Year's resolutions and other to-do lists!

I found this fun little printable calendar on Etsy from Little Brown Pen:

You buy the image and they email it to you. Then you just print as many as you want, bind them, and instant gift! I've made quite a few this year for stocking stuffers and they were a real hit. All you need is your Bind-It-All and a few supplies.

Here's how to make one:

  • 7 sheets of white 8.5 x 11 cardstock
  • Color Printer
  • Bind-It-All
  • DreamKuts
  • 6 Loops of 1/2" Owire
  • Tape or Adhesive

Print the pages out on the cardstock.

Run the pages through the Dreamkuts to cut them in half, inserting the 8.5" wide side of the paper into the back slot of the machine.

Stack all the pages in order by month and insert into the Bind-It-All. Center by eyeballing it and punch the holes.

Flip "Dec" to the front of the stack and insert the Owires.

Close the Owires using the Bind-It-All. Flip "Dec" back to the back. Wrap the label (comes with the printable file) around the calendar and secure with a little adhesive. Voila! Easy, sassy calendar!

Have a Happy New Year!
