Revamped Planner

I have been quiet on my blog, haven't I? I've been busy working mostly on gift projects and projects I am hoping to be published, so a lot of the things I have completed are top secret! SHHH :)

I did just finish this fun planner, which I will be entering to Ribbon Carousel's Back to School Challenge. With my going back to school around the corner, I wanted a fun planner I can use. Most people thought it was strange that I wanted a planner when we all have our handy smartphones, but there is certain satisfaction I get from writing things down and crossing things off a to do list. It makes me feel more accomplished! Of course, instead of me spending close to $10 on a cute planner, I decided to put my craft supplies to good use!

Basic Planner ($3 from Big Lots!)
May Arts 382-34-46
Remarks Alphas
Modge Podge

I took a 12 X 12 cardstock and created a standard book cover (I completely forgot to take step by step photos on how I did this, but I promise I will show you in a future post!). I wanted something I can use over and over again, so I simply used my planner as a template. This allows me to change to a different planner when a new year starts.

I decorated the book cover and sealed it with Modge Podge to make it sturdier.

I finished it up by making page flags using washi tape!

Thanks for stopping by and please stop by and keep an eye out for my book cover post!
