Introduction: Customized Calendar With Servo Motor

People got bored sometimes when sitting at the desk. If there is something decorative on the table, it would definitely be fun. For this project, I will be creating a customized calendar. Other than the calendar, you can also add other items that would make you feel happy when you are bored.


- ruler

- pattern paper

- paint (any color you want to color your box)

- 4 paper clips

- box (12*12)

- tape

- Scissor

Step 1: Design Your Calendar

Step 1: Choose a box (12*12) for the frame of the calendar, and color it with the color you like (I color them with sky blue)

Step 2: Cut the pink pattern paper into the size of 3*6 with 12 of them (represent the months)

Step 3: Write the abbreviation of months (Jan. Feb. Mar. Apr. May Jun. Jul. Aug. Sep. Oct. Nov. Dec.)

Step 4: Cut the purple pattern paper into the size of 3*5 with 4 of them (represent the first digit of the day)

Step 5: Write in the numbers (0 1 2 3)

Step 6: Cut the blue pattern paper into the size of 3*5 with 10 of them (represent the second digit of the days)

Step 7: Write in the numbers (0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9)

*Step 4 and 5 is the same as step 6 and 7

Step 2: Code Writing

This servo motor code helps the calendar on the top to rotate.

Step 3: Decoration

To add more details I added some decoration for the calendar. Since the calendar turn around at each angle, I add photo on the back (you can add any photos you like, ex: family, idols....etc.)

Step 4: Finish!!

lastly, connect the calendar to the servo motor
