You can use today’s resource for all sorts of things – It’s a calculator that will convert Years to Months, Weeks, Days, Minutes or even seconds. But it can be used to calculate so many other things such as a count down to a special event, how many days you’ve met a goal, how many days to reach your goal….Well, you get the idea.
I was interested in it to help make Personalized Birthday Cards like the one I’ve done above – no I don’t know anyone that old! At least not in years but just for a fun, I personalized a card with the Age converted from years into Days. The app helped me with the calculations.
This is the sentiment I popped in the card. I decorated a pre cut card with the numbers and offset which I cut with my cutting machine. I used a metal die for the Happy Birthday sentiment. Oh, and I used this method to print the greeting inside.
Using it to work out a Birthday? Why not just multiply the years by 365? Well, by using these calculators it factors in the leap years and you have a
choice to include the end date or not. Just makes it quick and easy.
This one is for an IPhone or IPad,. Search for it in the Itunes store – It’s called “Days Old” and it’s free.
Here’s a screenshot – I’m calculating the age here of my favourite Leo. You can see it calculates how many days as at the day you’re using it, or on the lower box you could put in a date in the future. At the top right it gives the date of some milestone days.

I also used it here for a vinyl fridge decal when I was decorating for my husband’s Birthday Party a few years back. In hindsight – it may have been more tactful to rephrase that as “Murray is 21923 days young!” Oh well….He He….
No Ipad or Iphone? – No Worries.
If you aren’t able to use the app above here’s a Desktop application that will do the same thing and is accessible to everyone with an internet connection.
This is how my calculations looked:
Have fun working out how old you are 🙂
