Racoon calendar divider+ paperclips – Free printable

Today I’m sharing with you a new adorable element that I love having in my planner: a monthly mini calendar divider. Actually I love it so much that I’ve decided I will make one for every month from now on.
I’ve also created matching paper clips so that my planner kind of gets a new look every month.
Sometimes just changing a few details makes all the difference, and I believe you don’t need to spend a big amount of money nor time to get good results!

Pin it for later!

For this coming month of november 2016 my calendar divider takes the shape of a lovely little racoon.
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. So, I plan on using a different animal (or other cute thing) shape every month, according to the season, etc.

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 getting dates mixed up. I first noticed this calendar divider idea on one of @brunella_bi instagram post and now I’m hooked!

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 and start sharing cute bear washi samplers!
