DIY Gifts: Printable Calendar

Today’s gift is a printable calendar. This would but a great gift to give to co-workers! The new year will be here before we know it and it would be so great to already have a calendar on hand! If you wanted to add some gifts to this, I would recommend a cute little notebook and a fancy pen.



When I was thinking about what graphics to put on these calendars, I got stuck on the idea of seeing something accumulate through the year. The abstract version I think ended up kind of like seeing a geode while the dot one looked like a confetti explosion by December!

To spruce these us, I got these great gold clips from Target. They added a nice metallic element and looked super modern. See below for the downloadable files – print, clip and go!

    Hi there,

    I love your calendar design, thanks for sharing it for free! Particularly, i’m trying to print the Dots calendar but on A5 size paper but it doesn’t seem to work – the margins keep getting out of place!

    I’m wondering if you’ll be able to share a A5 size pfd? Not sure if it works this way. But would love to hear from you.

    Thank you!

    Hi, I am not sure if you caught it already but I just printed September 2016 and the last day of the month says 20 instead of 30 for the dotted version. Thank you so much for this printable!

    Just a heads up that the second Sunday in October reads the 8th instead of the 9th on the 2016 abstract calendar.

    Thank you so much for making these super cute and easy to print!

    This is so beautiful and simple and lovely! I’m sad it’s nearly April and I’ll have missed three months of pleasure using it. Would you be able to share what the name of the font that you have used is?
