It's a nice idea, but it was rather bulky and used more tiles to indicate the day than necessary. Most designs use 31 tiles, to represent the 31 days of the (longest) month. But, a distant memory of a Martin Gardner column, reminded me that only 12 are actually needed.
So I built this...
(ok - it's my first attempt, and I'm not that handy with card, but I hope this explains the method)
You will need:
Two blank dice
One piece of card
Some clear tape
Step 1: Create a Template
You will also notice that many of the other sides need to have equivalent lines.
Step 2: Fold It Up
Note that the bottom two parts are not scored.
Step 3: Tape It Up
Also place a strip of tape on the front of the base, underneath the dice. This is were the month goes.
Step 4: Write on It
On the other die write, 0, 1, 2, 6, 7, 8
Write the '6' in such a way that it can be made to look like a '9'! This is the trick in only needing 12 digits. Do this will a sharpie or similar permanent ink.
Write the date along the tape, in dry erase marker.
Each day it is then a simple matter of rotating the dice in the correct orientation to describe the date, and re-writing the month on the 1st.
