Printable Instagram Mini Calendar

by Kira @ Her New Leaf on January 12, 2012

Raise your hand if you love Instagram! I love it and I don’t even have an iPhone – I steal Marc’s at any available moment to scroll through my feed or add new photos of my cat. Instagram is an iPhone app that allows you to snap photos, apply cool filters, and share them with an online community. But what do you do with your Instagram snaps after you’ve taken them?

Cool project ideas have been popping up everywhere: make teeny tiny prints for gifts, combine several photos to make a photostrip, or turn them into magnets or postcards to send to friends. There are so many fun ways to save and share your favorite Instagram photos!

I created this free, printable, downloadable mini calendar template that you can customize with your very own photos! So that everyone can share in the fun, I’ve included a template for Photoshop as well as good ol’ Microsoft Word.

Download for PhotoshopDownload for Word

1. Collect the images you want to use. They do not need to be from the Instagram app, but the template is designed to work with square images, so you may need to do a little cropping. An easy way to download your Instagram images to your computer is by setting up an Instagrid account to view your photos online.

2. Use your favorite photo-editing software to resize your image to 3.5 in x 3.5 in. If you don’t have Photoshop or something similar, you can use Picnik online for free.

3. Open up your template.

For Photoshop, click on the layer labeled “Click here, paste photo,” then paste your photo. Slide the photo up to the top of the frame so that it lines up nicely with the calendar portion. Repeat with your remaining photos.

For Word, click inside the square where you wish to insert your photo. Go to Insert > Image > From File and locate your photo on your hard drive. You photo should appear neatly in its box. Repeat with your remaining photos.

4. Hit “Print.” Adjust your printer’s settings to “Best” – this may look different depending on you computer and printer, so when in doubt, read your printer’s manual. I promise, it will look way better if you do.

5. Print, cut, and hang you calendar! You can use binder clips, pin up the pages individually, or paste them in your planner. Enjoy!

This template is for non-commercial use only. This means, feel free to share, edit and use this template however you want, but please do not use it to produce products that you plan to sell or make money off of in any way. That just wouldn’t be fair. ;-)

I hope you enjoy your new, custom calendar! Please send pics if you make one, I would love to see it!

Quick question! It prints on a regular-size piece of paper, right? I can’t tell how big it is from the photos…I’m guessing it’s small since it’s a “mini” calendar :)

Yes! You can actually print 2 per page – the dimensions of each page are 3.5 x 7.25 in. Let me know how it turns out!

Really cute Idea Kir! I love it. I use my droid phone’s camera to take pictures whenever I feel lazy, or when I don’t have easy access to my dslr. Some of the pictures I’ve been able to get with it are amazing. Perhaps I’ll have to make a little calendar for someone soon.

It’s official, I am now stalking you! First bit of info I’m combing the blog for is your instagram name. This is too cute and I plan on making one…. Someday. I’m a bit of a slacker when it comes to actually getting things done. But I’ll be sure to share when I do!

Just thought I would point out that sadly, picnik.com has closed:( I know this post was made back in January, but for the people still finding these awesome DIY tutorials, picmonkey.com is exactly like picnik if you need to do some cropping. (: Keep up the great tutorials!!

I love this! Will you make a template for 2013 aswell? :)

Hi! I LOVE this idea! I was thinking of making one using pics of my kids for the grandparents for Christmas. That way they could put them in their purse/office & always be reminded of us. (:

Will you be making a 2013 version or could you give us access to the actual number PSD file to make the changes ourselves? Yours is just so darling.
Thanks for sharing! {Found you via pinterest} (:
