The calendar pages are 4×6 inches and print out 2 to a page on your home printer. Be sure to print onto a heavyweight cardstock or plan to adhere the pages to cardstock so they’ll be sturdy.

You’ll want to trim 4×6 photos so they are 4 inches wide and 3.75 inches tall, then adhere them to the top half of the calendar page. For best results use a tape runner or double sided tape – just steer clear of glue or gluesticks, as both can cause the pages to ripple.

You can leave the mini calendar pages loose so they can be taped up on an office wall, singly or as a collage (this would look cool!). Or clip them together with a binder clip or have them spiral bound and add a mini easel for desktop display (I found this mini wood easel for $2.50 at Jo-Ann’s, find them on Amazon here. Or print them onto magnetic paper to make the coolest set of fridge magnets around!

    Thank you so much for sharing your 2016 mini calendar with your readers. I have printed the calendar on gold calligraphic parchment stock paper, it has a little more substance. My grand daughter will love it! I look forward to your future posts.

    Thank you for these! My daughter is drawing her own pictures for each page, and we will be copying and laminating the pages to give as gifts to each set of grandparents this year. Using plastic easels for display. Thanks so much!
