Question: Is there a way to "plug the hole" on a Calendar Page ?
Answer: See my suggestion at the bottom of this page.
Important Note #1: In my opinion, the photo of this scenemight have been taken with a telefoto lens, and to me, it looks blurry. You are encouraged to Zoom In on the photo to judge foryourself.
Important Note #2: A dark pink sheet of paper was placed behind this Calendar Page when it was scanned so that you could see the round hole on the top of the page, and the spiral holes on the bottom of the page.

I will be happy to combine shipping.Question: Is there a way to "plug the hole" on a Calendar Page to minimize the visual impact of the hole ? My suggestion: Look at the top left corner and the top right corner of the Calendar Page. Is the color on either of those corners similar to the color where the round hole is ? If the answer is "yes", then consider using one of those corners for the "plug" since the corners are usually the part of the page that are hidden the most by the picture frame edges. Warning: Practice the technique below on some junky calendar page before you try it on a Calendar Page that you really want to keep ! Measure the diameter of the hole that you want to plug. Then, find a drill bit that is a similar size in diameter. Using the blunt end of the drill bit, trace a circle in pencil on the top corner that you intend to cut. You want the circle to be just a little bit larger than the hole that you intend to plug it with. Cut the circle with a scissors that is sharp and small. Place the Calendar Page face down on a flat hard surface. Use the blunt end of the drill bit to then gently "push" the "circle plug" intothe hole in the Calendar Page. Turn the Calendar Page over, and if the plugged holelooks OK, place a small piece of clear tape over the "plug" to hold it in place. You can always touch up the hole with some cheap water color paint kits that you can buy at a Dollar Store. I hope that my suggestion helps !
