customizable instagram calendar (2)

hey, everyone! before i hop offline for the holidays, i of course had to share one last gift with you! this easy to print (or edit) instagram calendar is such a great way to start off the new year. you can either print mine (see below) or download the template to make your own. they were inspired by instagram photos, but of course, any photo cropped to a square will work!

*want a great gift idea? find your recipient on instagram by going to'recipient's instagram name' (like this:, download a few photos and make a calendar for them using their very own instagram photos. they'll be so surprised!

the calendar above is made from some of my very own favorite instagram photos from this year. you can either print mine, or use the included template to customize it by inserting your own photos.

to download: click on the image above to download the .zip file. inside you’ll find:

- printable PDF 2014 calendar.
- PDF blank template for you to add your own photos to.
- .PNG template with a transparent background for you to add your own photos to.
- .EPS file that you can open in photoshop and illustrator to edit.
(i tried to make something for everyone!)

instructions: print on heavy cardstock and cut in half (my favorite is epson premium presentation paper). punch a hole at the top of each to hang, or simply stack neatly.

**pro tip! use instaport to quickly download all of your instagram photos from the entire year!

  • So doing this one!!

  • Bonnie, this project is amazing! I just stayed up late making calendars from all of my favorite instagrams over the past year. Your tutorial was so simple and easy to use. This is just the added bit of handmade goodness a few of my Christmas gifts needed. Thanks so much for the great gift – I mean it! Happy Holidays! :)

  • soooo great! thank you so much and have a great christmas break!

    • you guys are so welcome!! merry christmas!

  • This is so great! happy new year!

  • Love love love love! Thank you!

  • This is such a cute idea and something I want to try for a new year’s project! And, I feel silly asking, but after I download the PDF template, how do I insert my own Instagram photos into the “Your photo here” section of the template?! Help :)

    • thanks amanda! do you have photoshop or illustrator? if so, you can open the pdf or eps file in either and drag and drop your jpeg photos into the document. if you don’t have either of those, i would suggest trying the .png file and dragging and dropping your jpeg pictures into that one. you’ll still probably have to have some kind of a photo editor though. :) xox

  • Thank you for sharing ! DI had been looking for on of these!

  • I love this project and must have gave at least five for presents. Can you maybe publish at 2015 one too?

    • that makes me so happy, emma! yes, i’ll definitely post one for 2015 later this year! :)
