Step 1:

Download and print out the free template (at the end of article, includes both color and black & white designs!). Cut along the outer lines, score around each pentagon shape. Gently fold along each scoreline.

Step 2:

Start with the first half , glue each tab to the back side of the adjacent pentagon, and form half of the dodecahedron.

For the second half, do the same but leave a few of the tabs open, then glue the 2 halves together.

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 last few tabs. Below is a photo from an earlier version, which shows the final step.

  1. Hi! First, thank you so much for this calendar! This is my second year using this Calendar. ????. One question, I like to use the color version for me and the black and white for the hubby but this year August is difficult to read. Any work around ideas?

  2. Hi,

    Impossible to catch a pdf of one 3D for ALL the year.
    Where is the connexion to print on 1 page this: A one-of-a-kind 3D 2018 calendar perfect for your desk! ?

    Great calendar

  3. Love this calendar! One question, in the article you mentioned that you had uploaded a document for SIlouette Cameo that included the score lines (in color & black/white) but didnt see it. This is the only link I saw:

    How can we load this into cricut to do the cuts/folds?
    Also, this file is in color. How can I get a copy in black/white?

    • hi blessy! i just added the black and white design link! 🙂
      in the previous version i did include a silhouette file, but the cutting and scoring was a bit confusing for lots of people,and it is just as fast to do it by hand. the pdf can be used in the cutting software for those who want to use cricut or silhouette.

  4. Hi. I have made your desk calendar in the past and it’s been fun. My problem is that I can’t find the down loadable pattern on your site. Where do I have to go to find the down load? Thanks.

  5. That’s awesome, you really have a creative talents and creating something out of something is amazing. Definitely gonna try this soon and add to my desk.
