Can you believe 2016 is coming in … no time?
Here’s an early little present – a 2016 printable calendar in 3D!
It makes a great gift and a great Christmas tree ornament !
Similar to last year’s calendar many of you loved, plus a new black and white version too, so you can colorize it into your favorite colors!
To make this dodecahedron calendar, all you need are 2 piece of card stock, I really like this wonderful card stock for paper crafts and even paintings!
Free template to download:
For example, these magical flower lanterns!
And these fall tree watercolor paintings too!
To make these calendars, first download (at the end of article) and print out the free template. Cut along the outer lines, score around each pentagon shape. Gently fold along each scoreline.
If you are lazy like me, you can also use a Silhouette Cutting machine, which I LOVE! Put it on your holiday wishlist if you haven’t! =)
The key is to pay attention when you glue the tabs: I found it easier to assemble the 2 halves, but leave a couple of the tabs loose, then glue the 2 halves together, finish with gluing the November and October parts.
The 2 photos above are from last years tutorial. If you need to see more steps you can check it out here.
Here’s our 2016 calendar!
The black and white one can be colorized on Photoshop or Gimp!
