free printable 2017 calendar

Are you excited about the new year? I am, and I’ve been making some goals and getting some planning done. Since organization is on my brain, today I’m sharing a 2017 desk calendar along with a free printable if you’d like to make your own.

I started by gathering my supplies: the printed and cropped calendar (which you can download for free from the We R Memory Keepers blog HERE), some washi tape (1/2 inch wide), and a mini clipboard (or you can use another method to bind it).

I added a 3 inch long strip of 1/2 inch wide washi tape to each calendar page under the month. You could also add patterned paper, ribbon, or a border.

I tried to select colors that represented each month, ie pink for February (Valentine’s Day), red for December (Christmas), etc.

I used mostly pastels for spring, and more rich colors for fall.

This easy desk calendar would make a great gift idea for friends or co-workers for the new year. You could also pull out your Cinch binding tool and a spiral binding wire. Thanks for stopping by today, and Happy 2017 friends!
