Hi guys!! Today I’m going to show you how to make and personalize your own planner from a boring plain one. It’s really easy to make it your own so it looks exactly like you want and without expending a lot of money in those expensive planners there are out there.
The first step is making the cover. You will need:
The agenda, a piece of scrapbook that is thick as cardstock and some clear plastic sheets.
Start off by taking out the wire part and make sure that you keep the order of the pages as you take them out. Finally take out the cover and the back and place them over the scrapbook paper, then outline and cut.
Align the old cover with the scrapbook piece to mark the holes. Then place the plastic sheet and the scrapbook paper together, hold them with some pins so they don’t move and cut so they have the same size. And before removing the pins poke some holes following the marks. Do the same to the back part.
Now it’s time to put the planner back together. Put the planner under the new cover and place the back part over, the same way I’m doing here and in that order put them back on the wire. Make sure you set aside one page that you don’t need.
To decorate the cover I made a simple sticker on picmonkey.com: I chose a circle, and put the word planner and the years on it. Then I printed it on adhesive paper, cut and stick it to the cover. You can make whatever design you want and the outside of your planner will be finished! Now it’s time to decorate the inside.
We’re going to start by making a dashboard for all your sticky
notes. Take that page we set aside before and pin it to a plastic sheet of the same size and poke some holes on the plastic using the planner page as your guide. Then make some little cuts next to the holes as I’m doing in the video. Use those cuts to place the dashboard on your planner. This system will allow you to change the place of you dashboard whenever you want. Finally, place all your sticky notes there.
I decided to add some pockets to my planner to keep all my stickers there. I thought about making them myself but I found them super cheap at my local craft store so I just glued them down to the back of my cover.
You can make your own stickers by printing them at home. I just searched planner stickers printable on Google images and chose the ones I liked. Then I just cut them and placed them on my planer pages. And the ones I didn’t use I just kept them inside my pockets. I also made these cute reminders myself.
You can combine the dashboard and the stickers technique to make a cute bookmark to mark the week you’re in. Take a plastic sheet and mark how wide you want your bookmark to be. Use the same technique we used before to make the holes but leave a little part on the upper side. Make some cuts and give the upper part a nice shape. Then stick some stickers and some washi tape to decorate your bookmark. Place it on your planner and that’s it! Those little cuts will allow you to change it from week to week.
So that was it for this video!! I hope you liked these DIYs to completely change your planners. Let me know in the comments which kind of videos you want to watch next and I’ll do my best to make it happen.
