Last August, I wrote this post and offered a free {madebyrice} perpetual birthday calendar printable. All you had to do was email me or leave a comment, and I’d send you the pdf file. It was lots of fun to hear from you. I thought, since it’s the beginning of a new year (and readership has grown since the last offer), it’d be a nice time to give away the perpetual calendar again! It’s simple and functional, perfect for helping you remember those important dates, and best of all, you can keep it year after year! No more transferring birthdays and anniversaries to your new calendar every year. And if your family is expanding, it’s easy to add more birthdays and anniversaries! (I’ll be a nerd and admit that I kind of like writing in my new calendar each year… but this is still great!) Instead of emailing the file, it’s available right here in this post! I’d still love to hear from you guys. If you want to comment here, or send an email {ricedesignblog (at) gmail (dot) com} that’d be wonderful! You can even sign up on the left to receive notifications of new posts.


I printed my calendar on brown paper (8.5×11), because I really like brown paper. But you can print yours on whatever you like! I do recommend card stock to make it more durable. The pdf is 6 pages. Once you print, just cut down the center of each page. Punch a hole in the top, loop some twine or string through it and you’re ready to go. Add your important dates and hang it up. I hope you enjoy your perpetual calendar! Click on the link below to get yours!




I hope you enjoy your calendar! Don’t forget to say hi!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your hard work! And THANK YOU for not forgetting February 29th – as a leap-day baby it is super appreciated!

  2. So pretty! Are you still offering this?

  3. Thank you, nice to find a genuine, free, printable calendar rather than one that gives you a link to a website where you can buy one!! Keep up the good work.

  4. Yes, thanks for your good work and for making it available! My son wants to keep track of family birthdays, anniversaries, etc. and doesn’t want to enter the dates and info every year on a new calendar. This perpetual calendar will please him no end!

    • You’re welcome! I’m so glad you like it and can use it! Hope your son is happy with it!

  5. Hi, I would love the printable birthday calendar. My mother in law has moved in with us & she has all her birthdays written on a piece of paper, it would be great if I had something like this to print up for her!! Thanks!

    • Hi Sheila! I hope your mother in law likes the calendar! There’s a link in the post that you can click on (the link is right below the second picture, between 2 pictures). It’ll take you to the PDF and you can print it out!

  6. Thank you for this! I was looking for a simple template to make a calendar for my sister and am too busy (lazy, distracted, doing other projects, take your pick!) to make my own, and yours is perfect!

  7. It looks very exciting, and my mothers-in-laws will appreciate theirs very much, as will I. Thank you for taking the time to produce.

  8. I have been looking for a perpetual calendar to print out so I can decorate them and create gifts for friends and family. Thanks!

  9. Thank you! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for!

  18. How do I get the pdf file? I looked under calendars and found your blog. I am passing on your blog to my friends. Thanks again.

  19. Thanks for the calendar. I hope it helps me remember all those important Birthdays that I never send cards for;) ~an early new year’s resolution!

  20. Woohoo!

    Hi! What a lovely, simple, elegant calendar! I do hope you are still offering this… I have just landed myself a teaching job next year, so I’ll be moving out of the house with my parents and into my own! Now I need to start organizing – a calendar like this is perfect! Thank you!!!

    • Thanks for your comment Erica! Yes, the PDF should still be available in the post! Congrats on your teaching job. Hope this calendar helps!

  21. I cannot see a link to download this but would love to be able to. Please help

  22. Ooops sorry found it. Thanks I really appreciate this

  23. This Birthday Calendar is just right to use with a special student in a life skills program!

  24. Thank you very much! I have an old one that i bought/decorated a long time ago, but sadly weve had several people leave the family (divorces!) and i need a new calendar. I appreciate that you generously shared your talents freel of charge. Thank you again. (found you on a google search for perpetual birthday calendar printable)

    • Thank you, Kelli! I’m happy to share the calendar and so glad you can use it! I’m sorry you have to make a new one though!

  25. Katy, thank you so much for a such a simple and elegant calendar – I’ve been looking for one exactly like this for a long time. I knew what I wanted but couldn’t find one anywhere that wasn’t covered in designs that were going to date pretty quickly.

    I’ve just missed a birthday of someone pretty special so action was promptly needed. I’m between jobs, so free is a real blessing right now. All I can send to you in return is a big bunch of gratitude, much thanks and many wishes for a wonderful New Year/2014.

    • I’m so glad you like it Eve! I’m glad your calendar search is over :) Thanks! Happy New Year!

  26. Thanks, Katy! I’m making chipboard birthday reminder books and these are PERFECT!!

  27. Katy,
    I hope that you are still sharing this link. I have benn looking for one for a long time.

  28. Hi
    I,ve been looking everywhere for a down load like this thank you for posting

  29. Thanks for sharing. Since it’s rare to find Birhtday Calender here in bookstore in my country, i’m so excited! :D You are so blessed! :)

  30. Thank so much! I just stumbled upon this while looking for a perpetual calendar and it’s exactly what I want!

  31. I hate to be so stupid, but how do I get a copy as you invited us to do? “Instead of emailing the file, it’s available right here in this post!” Where on the post? Thanks! Fred (a very old guy with poor eyesight)

  32. I was very happy to find your perpetual calendar download available online. The design and colors are suitable for us brutes who prefer the simple over the frilly. If I can get my chunky handwriting to fit between the lines, you will have another complete success! Thank you very much.

  33. I have had a perpetual calendar from Software Home/Family Bundle. It was a the Muppet calendar. I had the ability to enter the begin date and the calendar could return the b. current age in yrs tagged as a birthday or a. tagged birth anniversary date (would have been this old) etc. It also gave me the choice to put text in and tag it not to print. I now find the Muppet calendar will not print with my updated operating system. This only Muppet version available needs a 32bit OS. I now have a 64bit OS. I am so hoping your perpetual calendar can be something similar. I would appreciate the calendar. If there is a charge please let me know. Can I please get the PDF :)

    Thanking you in advance! Janet Brighton

  34. I would also like this PDF! Thank you!

  35. I belong to our church’s LWML (Lutheran Women Missionary League). We send cards to our female members every year, but have not had a very successful system. I’m interested in the perpetual calendar that looks nice and will be easy to update. This one looks very nice. Many thanks!

  36. This is not one for publishing to the church membership. It is for the records only for the LWML to keep and update to get the cards out in a timely fashion. No republishing is wanted or needed by our church.

  37. Thank you so much, your calendar is simply beautiful!!

  38. I love perpetual Birthday/Anniversary Calendars. No more forgetting important birthdays & anniversaries.
    Thank You

  39. I was given a perpetual calendar years ago and I love mine. I was telling a friend about mine and she would love one. Thank you for posting this for diy people like me.

  40. I’ve been looking for this for a while a and hope it is still available. Great snow week project here in Virginia!

  41. Thank You so much for sharing this calendar, I have been wanting one forever.

  42. hi
    i would very much like one of your perpetual calanders
    will i be able to add my own photos to it when i down load it

  43. This artlice keeps it real, no doubt.

  44. Thank you so much for sharing! It’s beautiful!

  45. Katy,

    Thank you! for sharing. As someone who is NOT creative – this is a real gift.

    I would like to print 1 for myself, my mom (with Alzheimer’s) and my niece. Simply so the 3 of us can keep track of the family birthdays & anniversaries. I know they will appreciate this too. Would that be okay?
