  • How to make a calendar. Forever Calendar - Step 1
    Step 1

    gather your
    supplies...and
    print out your
    cover and months
    on the velum and
    your designs onto
    the cardstock. cut
    out all designs
    from cardstock
    and all months
    from velum.

    Step 2

    match up the design with each
    month. I choose my designs based
    on whose birthday was taking place
    that month. So for instance, my
    husband’s birthday is in november
    and he likes bold design. I
    matched him up with oneof the
    bolder and more modern designs
    i choose for this calendar. it still
    fits with all the other pieces, but
    stands out a bit.

    TIP:
    thi s is a great opportunity to really make this calendar yours. why not use
    the template and add your own design - or add pictures of your friends whose
    birthday is that month. Why not use hearts for february, shamrocks for
    march and snowflakes for december

    starting with january, place
    the velum over the design
    sheet making sure to center
    the velum over the design
    and make sure they are
    flush at the top. clasp to-
    gether with the binder clip.

    Step 4

    measure across and place a
    dot with your pencil every .25”.
    use your japanese screw
    punch to punch a hole on every
    dot. repeat this for all of the
    months and the cover. 3.

    TIP:
    if you happen to have a coil binding machine handy, just
    punch the holes with that. and move onto step: 5

    Step 5

    once you’ve got all your
    holes punched go ahead and
    line up all your sheets and
    begin winding the coil
    through them. I found it
    handy to use the binder clip
    to keep them in line.

    cut off any remaining coil leaving
    one full circle. you’ll want to nedn
    that and tuck it under the one
    before it. when you’re done that, right
    in your importantdates and display!
