Donna's Small Desk Calendar
Even though I can look at my computer's calendar, I still use this sort of calendar on my desk. It sits right under my computer monitor.
I had to make one this year. Typically I add a stand to a small commercial calendar, the kind the drugstores give away to their customers, but I did not get one this year. First I tried cutting up one on my notebook calendars and making one from that, but after using it a couple of days, I realized that the numbers are too small and so I made this calendar, the one pictured here.
If you want to make one for your desk or if you just want the small months to glue to something, you may print the calendar from the files linked below and then visit the other pages to see how I made the calendar.
- Choose a year
- Cut out each month along the lines [Small Desk Calendar—Cut & Stack ]
- Stack the months in order
- If making a stand: Place on a strip of card-stock
- Sew or staple [Small Desk Calendar—Sewing the Months to the Card]
- Fold remaining card stock to make the stand [Small Desk Calendar—Folding the Stand]
Supplies for Small Desk Calendar

- Card-weight paper for stand [at least 2 3/8" x 8 1/2 " in size]
- Either a stapler with staples or a sewing machine with matching thread and a heavy duty needle
