This is the part of our year that feels like a fresh start.
We begin school on Monday, so I've been filling my planner with 'to-do's' galore.
Usually, I buy a new planner. But I am trying to use old things better...
So, I bought cheap insert pages this year.
And a couple packs of stickers...
Making do with what I have is being creative in and of itself.
I like to separate my planner sections with folders/dividers.
All the cute packs of them seem like a waste of money, so I just make my own.
You can too.
All you need is cardstock (preferably printed, something cute:).
Clear packing tape.
And then to make it way better than any store-bought divider-- use some of your scrapbooking stickers/alphas/washi tape and decorate it.
~fold a piece of cardstock to a slightly bigger width than your planner pages
(Erasmus was really interested in this project)
~fold a smaller piece to use as your tab
attach it with the packing tape...kinda like laminating it
(I cover all the corners of the divider too so they don't get worn quickly)
~cut out a square and sew it to one side of your page
now you have a little pocket
~use clear photo pockets that have a sticky strip to hold stickers/receipts
~this photo has nothing to do with my planner
it is just cute;)
Happy school year planning, peeps.
Remember-- cute planners accomplish more;).
