Raise your hand if you too like making your planners pretty with papers and embellishments. I still haven’t got an official planner that a lot of you have. It’s not that I don’t want one, I just haven’t had the time to sit down and find one that I really love. Like most you of, I am a Target shopper and have always loved the simple planners that always hit the shelves right at Christmas time. I like to see my entire month at a time and once you find a planner that works, well you just stick with what works.
I want to be cool too, and add pretty papers and embelishments to my planner. But first I needed something that would hold all those papers together on my planner.
A friend recently let me borrow her button maker. Goodness am I obsessed.
To customize a paper clip that will hold all my papers to my planner, I first need to make a button that would attach to my jumbo paper clip.
To start, I cut out one of the swans from the BLOOM pattern paper. Once I had my circle punched out I layered my buttons and pressed them with the button maker. If you don’t have a button maker you can find similar supplies at the craft stores , or you can even attach an embellishment.
Once the button is made I used E6000 and attached the button to the paper clip.
Now the fun part, collecting a few of my favorite papers from the bloom collection.
Once I choose the papers I wanted to use I began layering them onto the front of my planner.
My paper clip also holds open the current month, high five for doule purpose !!!
My planner is officially hip.
I hope this project will inspire you to create even if your planner isn’t intended for scrapbook papers.
