Hi creative friends,
For quite a few years now I’ve been offering printable mini calendars during Simply Christmas… and they are always one of my most popular downloads each year.
These little cuties tick so many boxes; they are quick and easy to make, are inexpensive, they are practical and decorative… and they are the perfect little token gift.
This year I’ve gone with a very feminine, soft floral design on both a pink and a neutral base card… plus, I added a sweet floral envelope to put the calendar in.
The two printable mini calendars each measure 9 cm wide x 12 cm high (3 1/2” x 4 3/4”), so they are perfect to simply pop into a card or add to a small gift box.
They are even small enough to fit into your handbag or put a magnet on the back and hang on the fridge or your desktop.
Best of all, this is a quick and easy ‘print and make’ project that you can make in less than 30 minutes
How to Make Your 2023 Calendars

Print page 1 ( backing cards) on cardstock – I used 250 gram matte photo paper.
Print page 2 (envelope) on light weight photo paper.
Pages 3 and 4 (calendars) on normal copy paper.
- Cut out the envelope using scissors or a craft knife. Score the score lines that are marked on the envelope printable. I also used a round punch to make an opening in the back of my envelope (optional).
- Cut out your two backing cards. I decided to use my corner punch on the corners of the backing cards and also added a very light distressing of ink around the edge, but this is totally optional.
3. I’ve outlined the calendar months in grey, so you can cut the squares out just inside the grey line. Compile your calendar months in order and hold together firmly; I used a couple of clips to hold the calendar together temporarily. Using your sewing machine, stitch the pages together across the top of the calendar. Secure cotton ends at back of calendar.
5. Attach your calendar to the backing board using either a hot glue gun or clear glue. The stitching across the top of the calendar will allow you to tear off each month as required. Glue a magnet in place on the back of your calendar (optional).
