Clip-Art Calendar

Blueprint, November/December 2007

Forgot to get a gift? Print out our pretty 2008 desk calendar and prop it up in a CD jewel case.

Clip Art Calendar How-To
Download the calendar and print on high-quality 8 1/2-by-11-inch paper. Cut out each month using a utility knife or an office arm paper cutter. For the stand, use a clear CD jewel case flipped inside out.

    Would love to see this updated for 2009!

  • turtlegrins 23 Jan, 2009

    Connie! Thanks for the links! Perfect!! That was awfully nice of you to do the legwork for us! :)

  • kateoverjoyed 2 Jan, 2009

    Hi folks! I loved this calendar, and I was hoping for a 2009 version, but I got tired of waiting so I made my own rather easily from my Word program. It looks almost identical to the 2008 one. I don't put mine in a jewel case. I have a black picture frame that fits it perfectly. I display it like art on my shelf.Give it a try.....

  • carlie8852 30 Nov, 2008

    We need one for 2009!!!

  • epintor 15 Nov, 2008

    Will you have a 2009 calendar clip art??? Sure like this idea!! Very inexpensive,too

  • tschlechty 23 Oct, 2008

    I love this idea! This is a great gift idea for your co-workers or to give as a gift to your children's school teachers. You can print these on colored or printed paper to jazz it up a bit.
    Thanks Martha--I hope you will be doing one for 2009!

    This is a great way to showcase your favorite scenic shots or other items of particular interest.

  • okiecowgirl 23 Oct, 2008

    I hope that you do this again for 2009. We tried to make our own for our desks at work without a template, but they just didn't turn out very well.

  • stampers 8 Oct, 2008

    I hope you are going to put up calendar for 2009 I love this idea great recycling

  • smilee 7 Oct, 2008

    I've seen photoshop calendar brushes for 2009 on etsy. You can design your own calendar, just google or search on etsy. Hope that helps.

  • luvs2create 6 Oct, 2008

    Great idea! When can we expect 2009?

  • judyathome 4 Jun, 2008

    I would like to have a 2009 calendar or Sunday School teachers. This is a wonderful idea. Should give measurements for cutting.

  • yvonneANDjoe 13 May, 2008

  • HIS 8 May, 2008

  • dawnlamb 8 May, 2008

    I love this idea but would love to see the calender for 2009, so that I can make them for teachers gifts for next year or Christmas gifts.

  • barbarabayliswordpresscom 27 Apr, 2008

    Love this idea and will print up several for around the house next to the phones. and one by my computer too

  • handmadebymom 30 Mar, 2008

    We will be giving this great compact idea as a gift to our teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week this May. Thanks for the tip!

  • aricmokh 10 Mar, 2008

    These are actually "CD calendar Cases" designed specifically for Calendars and NOT regular CD Jewel Cases. For more info do a google search for "calendar cases".

  • katesays 21 Dec, 2007

    Another way to change the Printing Scale on PCs is from the Print window, go to Properties then the Page Setup tab, and change the Printing Type to 'Scaled Printing', then enter 85%... although they were still a little tall for my cases (but a quick trim sorted it out).

  • AllureEventDesign 21 Dec, 2007

    SOLUTION TO PRINTING SCALE - if your printer does not allow you to change the scale of the document for printing, check if you can customize the size of the paper used. I changed the paper size to 7.4 x 9.4 in and specified that the print should be shrunk (not fitted) to the paper size. I still printed the calendar on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper and it's perfect! .. Now I'm back to printing 50 of these babies O_o

  • shanson 21 Dec, 2007

    If you take the case apart and put the two back toward each other, they will sit exactly like it is supposed to on your desk or wherever.

  • betsywetsy 20 Dec, 2007

    I bought a box of jewel cd cases from staples and I cannot get them to flip backwards. Anyone have any thoughts?!?

  • amatternschain 18 Dec, 2007

    Just and FYI- if you set the document to print two items to a page- you get the months small enough to fit into a mini jewel case (about 3.25 X 3.5) which is very cute and you can buy a pack of them at Staples!

  • kristenatteberry 17 Dec, 2007

    Select File, then Print, Properties, Effects, left side seklect the % that you want to print.

  • cricket53 16 Dec, 2007

    I'm using Adobe Reader 7 on a PC and cannot find any way (including the option mentioned below) to resize this. I would like it to be a bit smaller so there is more of a martin on the file. Can anyone adjust the file just using Reader?

  • chefcindy 13 Dec, 2007

    I'm on a Mac. You would go under the "File" menu and select "Page Setup". This is where you can change 100% to 85%. Hope this helps!

  • carlie8852 12 Dec, 2007

    I also can not figure out how to print at 85%. PLEASE HELP!!!! I absolutly love love love this gift idea!

  • beckybmommy 12 Dec, 2007

    I too can't find how to print at 85%. I using acrobat 6.0.

  • ldybg93 29 Nov, 2007

    clareinnc - I can't figure out how to print at 85% - can you shed any light? I think I've tried every possible feature in the print function!!

  • clareinnc 23 Nov, 2007

    You're not nuts. I printed it at 85% to get it to fit the CD case properly. :o)

  • beehive 21 Nov, 2007

    Am I nuts or are the template pages too large to fit a jewel case? Should I be printing it out at a smaller percentage?

  • ylekiot 20 Nov, 2007

    I am going to print faded out (or even sepia) photographs first, then reprint with the calendar templates. THANKS!

  • tierragirl497 17 Nov, 2007

    Isn't this a clever way to deliver a gift card as well? Would also make a wonderful gift that school children can give their parents, grandparents, etc. and personalize the cover with their special art work or a special photo ! I know they will be a special favor at a party our daughter is giving for her teenage friends!

  • sho_es 15 Nov, 2007

    what a great gift to have on hand for those unexpected presents you can receive . thanks

  • donnabraud 15 Nov, 2007

    This is just the best little idea. I am in the process now of making several for gifts. I, too, plan to personalize the case somehow, maybe with a photo or clip-art of some of the recipient's favorite things. I work in an office setting, so guess what everyone is getting for Christmas????

  • craftee 15 Nov, 2007

    I found a 24 pk at Staples for $11. They are the "traditional" style that have the black insert that you will need to pop out. Unfortunately I did have to trim the calendar template about 1 inch in order to make the pages fit into the CD case.

  • pam_cox 14 Nov, 2007

    can someone please tell me if you found a CD jewel case that looks and holds the calendar the way it looks in the photo. None of my cases are made like that and I need to find some for gifts. Thanks! :)

  • tarenbelle 12 Nov, 2007

    I love to give a gift that is personal... All my girlfriends are going to recieve this gift!! to take it one step further I am going to make them each a CD of my favoritve music to put inside, and put thier inital on the jewel case cover to personalize it. Thanks for the great idea!

  • CFmom 8 Nov, 2007

    Well it can't get easier than this! I am always looking for an attractive calendar for my desk and this is perfect. I only wish it came in a masculine font so I could give this to the guys in my life.
