I’ve been pretty into Instagram since I got my iPhone early this year, and I’ve been wanting to figure out ways to display my favorite shots. The other day I thought, how about a calendar? So I made one!
I love how it turned out: simple, functional, a lovely display of some of my favorite instas.
…or without any photos, so you can plug in your own square-format photos. And both options come in the lighter text (as above) or the darker text (as below). Note: the lighter text in the photos of it hanging in my kitchen looks barely-visible, but that’s mostly to do with the lighting in there; it’s actually plenty visible, I think.
If you want to put in your own photos, you’ll need an application that can open and edit pdf files, to place your photos on the pages. Or you could do it analog – print out the calendar as is, then print out your own photos, and glue them on there.
To make the calendar, you’ll need a photo printer (or a trip to Kinko’s or something), nice letter size* photo paper/cardstock to print out the pages (I used Red River Paper GreenPix, which I highly recommend, but unfortunately it’s only available in 4×6 inch size and rolls right now), a paper cutter (or scissors and the ability to cut super straight), and a hole punch. Print, cut down the center dotted line, punch out the grey dots, and hang!
*The pdf is sized for US letter size paper (8.5×11 inches) but if you use a different paper size and print it fit to page, centered, it should work fine, just with some extra white space that you can trim off as needed.
