Magnetic Calendars

I hope I do not seem to be rushing the next year in but I have been playing around with a calendar template and made it transparent and I also made it with the blank center so that graphics or a background can be added behind it and/or in the center of the calendar. I think it came out nice and today I printed out some calendars on magnet sheets. These can be use on a refrigerator, school locker, office cabinet or other metal surfaces.
I originally made a 6x6 inch template but then decided that If I made it 5x5 inches I could easily print 2 of them on a full size magnet sheet. I used the Avery Magnet sheets which have a matte surface and they print out nicely. I printed 2 sheets then put them back to back, slid them between laminating sheets and run them through my Scotch brand heat laminator. By doing them back to back, I can laminate both sheets in one run. Then I cut them out and separate them, ending up with 4 magnets with a laminated front.
I've decide to share my blank calendar template with anyone who would like to make some of these fun little calendars and I've include the two sizes in the download. The templates are PNG format and transparent. You can get my blank calendar templates HERE at my 4shared account.
graphics used are ©pcCrafter



This is a close up of one but I had to tilt my camera so that I didn't get a flash back from the shiny lamination. It looks a little distored but it really isn't. :-)
