January Calendar Page

I hope your new year has a successful start.  Me, I'm hard at work, working on my resolutions.  I have to admit, they do make me reflect, and stop before I make a few decisions.  Boy, I hope I don't sound pathetic.  
Anyways, one of my resolutions was to 'stay focused' to finish what I start.  I love to paper craft.  And to be honest, I have these great ideas on what I want to craft, buy all the stuff, and then the project, sits in a bag, or a pile in my craft room, and never gets done.  I have become a 'collector' of paper crafting supplies.  I have a whole room filled with these items.
One of the projects that I wanted to create, was/are these flip top calendars for a group of friends.  So, I have set out to actually make them.  What a novel idea, right?  So, here is the first month of the first calendar.  

It's little 3" x 3 1/2".  I purchased the calendar pages from Paper Trey Ink, and stamped the month by hand.  I matted the calendar page, and then added this beautiful Graphics 45 pattern paper for the main page.  Tied some beautiful green gingham pattern ribbon around the first pattern paper page.  Ok, now I need to get into my craft room and finish the months.  I haven't decided yet, how to bind the pages.  If you have any suggestions, please let me know.  At this point I am thinking of doing a spiral bind.  But I haven't committed to the decision yet.
