I printed a "cover page" with a calendar for the month of September. Then I printed the planner page (included in the download) on the back. I then printed it on the front and back of 7 pieces of paper to give me enough days for the month (does that make sense?). I took a cute piece of cardstock, cut it to size (8.5 x11), folded it and all the pages in half. Then I sewed right up the fold line with my sewing machine. I folded it in half again to re-crease it. Rounded the cover's corners with a punch and ta-da (as RJ would say) my custom planner for the month. I'm going to make one of these next. I'll probably have it printed and bound at my local copy center... I think they would make cute gifts too.
