Hello everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro here today with a quick tutorial for all our planner lovers. I made an easy binder for the top of my planner to hold important loose papers. Making the folder is simple and practical!
To begin, use one of your planner pages as a template; cut paper in the same height. Score your paper at the exact width of your planner. To complete the folder, you will need 4 sections of paper, preferably in one sheet. If necessary, add a piece of paper to give you the right width for the project. I am using the new Simple Life collection, perfect for your planner with its everyday sentiments and stickers!
Bend the outer sections into the center of the page, meeting in the middle.
Next, cut the outer sections diagonally, at your desired angle preference. Glue the folded paper in at the bottom and the center of the paper.
Using your planner page as your template, punch holes on the outer edges of your binder.
To more easily open your folder, snip tiny triangles from the outer edge to the holes of your binder.
Now it is time to decorate your folder! I used one of the 4×6 cards on one of the Simple Life patterned papers.
My planner is simple, while also being functional and cute. I use a bow clip to mark my week. Additionally, I use some of the lovely wood veneer shapes to create extra clips for my planner. The rest of the planner is decorated with washi tape strips and a few die cuts.
The little word stickers are the perfect pairing for your planner — they come in 3 pages, with 117 stickers in 3 different colors, for a great selection of choices.
Are you a planner fan? If so, be sure to check this lovely spread from Monique using the same collection!
Have a great week!
