Polar bear calendar + paperclips – Free planner printable (+ blank version)

(This post contains affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosures here.)
UPDATE: Blank Undated version now available
UPDATE: I’ve now added a blank undated version of this file so that you can use it for a different month or a different purpose (die cut, divider, digital planner, etc). I’m including PNG & PDF version. The PDF file is ready to print. Download the PNG file if you’d like to resize the image.

Check out all the monthly calendar dividers already shared.

Remember the cute raccoon monthly mini calendar divider I shared with you in November and the cute penguin family in December? Well, as I promised, here’s a new one for January. I hope this little polar will fill your month and your planner with cuteness! It’s cold in France right now, so these little polar cuties fit my mood of the moment!

I love this mini calendar concept so much that I will keep on making a new one every month.
I’ve also created matching paper clips so that my planner kind of gets a new look every month.

UNDATED BLANK VERSION AVAILABLE: I’ve created this calendar divider/die-cut in two versions: a blank undated one that you can use anytime you’d like (to keep notes, decorate, add any month’s calendar, etc) and a dated version that will help you keep a whole view of the month. The undated version is available in PDF (ready to print) and PNG (if you need to resize or if you want to use your electronic cutting machine to cut your divider).

All the previous calendar dividers/die cuts have now been updated to include a blank undated version (PNG & PDF). You can find all the calendar dividers here.

Sometimes just changing a few details in your planner makes all the difference, and I believe you don’t need to spend a big amount of money nor time to get good results!

To start the year 2017, this january calendar divider takes the shape of a lovely polar bear.

With his little scarf and good looks it’s hard to not find him cute!

Of course I could just as well have created a simple more formal calendar divider, but by now you’ve probably noticed that my style is more kawaii than formal and that I like my planner accessories to look everything but serious. To top it off, I created matching  paperclips to go with this month calendar. It’s all very grown up stuff you know, haha.
It’s important to take things lightly and have fun with this whole planning thing.

The PDF also includes a matching pattern that you can add to the back of your calendar if you want it to be cute from every angle!!

Depending on where you punch your holes and how you place your divider in your planner you can get a different look: visible or not when your planner is closed. Plus, you punch holes yourself so this divider can fit in any type of planner!

On top of being cute, this calendar divider is also functional. It quickly gives you a whole month view, can help you find your page and is even more helpful to have around if you use an undated planner. Nobody likes to get dates mixed up.

Supplies and instructions:

This “DIY” to create your monthly calendar divider is pretty self explanatory but basically, you’ll need:

  • thick paper like cardstock paper, or else your divider will probably get flimsy
  • printable file (subscribe to download)
  • a printer (if you’re curious I have a Canon Pixma 5550, it’s a pretty simple one, but I can’t find it anywhere on any US website, so here’s the top rated printers on Amazon under 100$)
  • scissors (or cutting machine) – the shapes are really simple so using scissors is probably just as quick!
  • hole puncher
  • Optional : a laminator (if you want to keep them clean longer, this will also make them a little stronger)

Just reading the supplies list should make you guess what you have to do now:

  1. Download the PDF file, resize if needed
  2. Print it on cardstock paper
  3. Cut each shape with your scissors
  4. Optional: if you want to add the background to the calendar, glue recto & verso together
  5. Laminate them if you want to
  6. Enjoy all month long!

If you prefer to use your Silhouette machine, the steps are just slightly different :

  1. Download the pdf file
  2. Open the pdf in Silhouette software directly if you have the Designer Edition. If you have the basic software, fear not and turn the PDF into a jpeg first, using this website. You can resize in Silhouette.
  3. Trace the design
  4. Use the Print and cut function through your Silhouette software
  5. Optional: if you want to add the background to the calendar, glue recto & verso together
  6. Laminate them if you want to
  7. Enjoy!

Note: I’m including print ready PDF file (undated or dated) and an undated PNG version of the design in case you’d like to use this printable for a different month or for a different use (die cut, divider, digital planner, etc). PNG file can be used if you’d like to change the size. Simply download the file you need.
