You just need 8 squared sheets, scotch tape and a stapler.

We start folding the sheets separetly by its half to make a triangle, and that triangle will be folded again by its half:

After that with the scissors we will make four cuts in the part of the last fold to the part that is divided:

Now we unfold and this is the result:

Now we start bending the cut layers helping us with our finger to make a cylinder and we stick it with a bit of scotch tape:

The next cylinder will be bent on the other direction:

2017 Calendar

OMG, we have just started November!! but... how does it happened? I feel like if yesterday we had our summer vacations!

It's a fact, I'm getting older, each year passes with more and more speed, uff, it makes me dizzy... and as we have started already to have some important dates for the next year, I have started to prepare my new calendar (that calendar that I have in my kitchen board) and I want to share it with you, in case you could be interested in using it.

2017 calendar


Here you have my 2017 calendar. It's really simple and clear, this year I've made it in landscape format, after probing last year in vertical format, it seems to me more practical when writing dates.
