2017 3D Printable Calendar
Some of you have already asked for it, so here it is – our 2017 dodecahedron 3D printable calendar! UPDATE: 2018 version will be here by November 16th!
It makes sense to have next year’s calendar handy, because lots of things need to be planed a few months ahead, such as … a trip to Costa Rica! 🙂
This 2017 printable calendar will be a different color palette than last year’s, so we can keep them side by side for a while.
Let’s make one and start dreaming a beautiful 2017!
Materials and tools:
( Some of the helpful resources are affiliate links. Full disclosure here. )
- I love this good quality card stock, it is easy to work with and holds the shape very well, and some glue.
- an inkjet printer
- it is easy enough to print out the templates ( download at the end) and cut with an Xacto knife, but if you have a Silhouette Portrait or Cameo, I have included the cutting file for you as well.
First download and print out the free template (at the end of article, includes both color and black and white designs!). Cut along the outer lines, score around each pentagon shape. Gently fold along each scoreline.

The only tricky part is where to glue the tabs first: although I made it last year and wrote about it, I still forgot to do it in the correct order, and had to peel apart some tabs and redo it!
Can you believe this? I should read my own blog more often, right? 🙂
I found it easier to do it in three steps:
1 . Assemble the 2 halves, but leave a couple of the tabs loose,such as the September and October tabs shown below.
2 . Join the 2 halves together.
3 . Finish with gluing the September and October parts.
It is so easy! They make really fun gifts, especially for those friends who love geometric designs, or something unique!

Stay tuned for more pretty 2017 calendars coming in the next few weeks!
WoW, the years sure do tick on by! Here we are 3/4 thru 2020 already!
Is this something that will be updated by you or is there a file that I could make the changes to?
I just stumbled on your website, i love it! Thank you for the terrific free

I got the email. 🙂
I have just found your site and joined the mailing list, after seeing these 3D calendars I got inspired but couldnt find where to download them. Hope you can help me.

I accidentally requested the 2016 calendar template, then when I requested the 2017 template, I didn’t receive it (even in spam). I tried a different template for a lantern and received it, but I still can’t get the 2017 calendar to work. Can you please help? PS – LOVE YOUR SITE!!!
So cute and fun! I’ll have to print it out, and then assemble it while reading the directions again.
These are really cool! Would be perfect for my desk!
Love these calendars!!! They are so perfect for a desktop – take up little space and are so attractive! Will get started on my new one right away – and will make some for family members as well! Thanks again for the new colors and reminder to do this for next year…..
What a fun and usable printable! Pinning!
I enjoyed using mine so much this year! Thank you so much for this beautiful design. Love the new colors!
