Honeybear: January, Printable Freestanding Calendar

So here we are at the end of 2012. I hope you have had a lovely holiday break. I've been using the down time to get on with lots of little creative projects, including this one for a printable calendar buddy. This little guy is the 'Honey Bear', part bumble bee part grizzly bear! I wanted to call these calendars 'Cutants' but Polly Pocket has already beaten me to that name, darn it! That's the idea though, cute mutants. Each month there will be a new Cutant to keep you company while you work. You can create a little desk top zoo or recycle at the end of each month.

Download the 'Honey Bear' calendar here... 

1. You don't need much to make the Honey Bear,  just some thick paper/card, a little ruler, some scissors and double sided tape or glue. Firstly download and print out the design.

2. Roughly cut around the outline.

3. Use the back edge of the scissors and a ruler to score along the grey fold lines. Be careful not to score through the ears!
4. Using a small sharp pair of scissors cut along the black dotted line. Go slowly when cutting around the ears and wings, these are a little tricky.
5. Once you've cut the Honey Bear out fold along the scored grey lines.

 6. Put double sided tape or glue on the top side of each flap. Stick the flaps to the body, so the flaps stick behind the adjacent part of the body.

7. Stand on your desk and enjoy.
