You can make a calendar for your home or office that has one page for every day of the year. This type of calendar is known as a 365-day calendar, a page-a-day calendar or a daily calendar. Such calendars are useful for people who have many events to keep track of each day, since there's plenty of room to jot down information. In addition, daily schedules can be viewed at a glance by flipping through the pages.
Using Microsoft Word as your word processor, create a new document. Make two columns in the document by selecting the columns icon in the standard toolbar at the top of the screen, scrolling over the first two images of columns and clicking the mouse.
Select "Format" from the menu bar. Select "Paragraph" from the drop-down menu. Choose "Centered" for alignment and click OK. Using the Times New Roman font in a size 14, type "January" in the first column. Hit the return key and type the number "1."
Copy "January 1." Hit the return key 10 times and paste "January 1." Replace the 1 with a 2. Hit the return key 10 times and paste again, replacing the 1 with a 3. Hit the return key 10 times. Adjust the spacing if necessary to make sure there are three evenly spaced calendar pages per page.
Highlight the entire column, copy and paste to the top of the second column. Change the numbers to 4, 5, and 6. Continue to paste the first column into the columns on the following pages. Change the numbers until you reach 31. Then, replace "January" with "February." Continue in this manner, until you reach December 31, allocating the correct number of days for each month.
Print out the completed calendar pages. Cut the pages evenly using a paper cutter or a ruler and a razor blade.
Order the calendar pages beginning with January 1. Orient each page with the month's name at the top. Stack the pages evenly so the top edges line up. Paint a thick layer of rubber cement onto the top edge of the stack of pages, which will hold all the pages together. Some of the rubber cement will also seep down to saturate the very top of each page, creating a more secure hold.
Account for an extra day in February if the calendar is for a leap year.
