Making Your Own Kimi CalendarJanuary 21, 2012 at 9:00 am | Posted in Craft Corner, Imikimi | Leave a comment
Imikimi team here! Thanks for tuning in for another awesome craft! This week we will be learning how to use your Kimi’s to make a homemade calendar.
Calendar’s make great gifts for friends and family. Instead of searching for that calendar of cats in tutu’s or people dancing with dogs, why not provide those nearest and dearest to you with a homemade calendar!
- Hole Punch
-First you will need to make 12 Kimi’s (possibly a 13th if you would prefer to have a different picture for the cover). If you would like to add text to any of your pictures, click the “Switch to Full Kimi Editor”. Here you can add text (see below).
-Go ahead and save and print out your Kimi’s and set them aside. You will need them shortly!
-Next you will need to find a calendar template you would like to use. If you have Microsoft Word installed on your computer you can use their calendar template. For once you can print offline visit Free Printable Calendars 2012 for some great templates you can use. For this project, I will be using the Blank Calendars 2012 Template from Free Printable Calendars 2012.
-Print out your calendar templates for each month in 2012. Now comes the fun part! Take your hole punch (if you want to get a little more creative, try using a hole that stamps out a different shape, like a square or a star) and start punching holes in the top right and left sides of each page in your calendar. Make sure they all line up!
-Now once you have hole punched each of your pages and have them in order (since we are making a traditional calendar you will need to have your calendar pages and Kimi pages facing one another so you can see both clearly when the calendar is displayed), take the yarn and loop it through the left hole of all the pages. Tie a bow. You may want to double knot it to make sure it doesn’t untie later on. Repeat with the right side.
There you have it! You are now the owner of an awesome, customized Imikimi Calendar! Come back next week to learn how to make another fabulous craft. Until then, have a great week!
