You don't give enough information for your intention, a perpetual
calendar perhaps?

Do you want 366 single sided A5 pages, Jan 1->Dec 31

Do you want double sided (183 pages)

And what information do you want on each page (Day and Month?)

Scripting is probably out of the question for you, though I suspect it
would be a useful script if written

Anyway, I would probably make a master pages with guides (for snapping
to), have the days and Months in text boxes in the scrapbook and just
copy them in from there. After guillotining, discard the blank.

Another approach would be to have a two fold publication. Sun and Wed
one side, Mon Tue the other (second sheet Thu Blank, Fri Sat) and just
fold, then bind or guillotine.
