Top Ten Tuesday- Planner Supplies

Top ten Tues planner supplies

I often see the question, “What do I need to get started in my planner?” come up in Planner Groups on Facebook.

Well… the planner world can be quite intimidating. You get on Instagram and see all these fun layouts that looks like a scrapbook factory vomited all over someone’s planner. You think … yes! I want Scrapbook Vomit! My life will not be complete until I have it!!!

And then you get your new planner… and it’s empty… a vast blankness stares back at you and you get scared… and close it… and wonder what you’ve gotten yourself into.

{DIY} Planner Cover for the Happy Planner- A Tutorial

diy coverI was playing around with my planner the other day. I don’t have the arc punch that would make creating and adding pages to my planner super easy… but then I realized… I don’t NEED the punch!

Here are easy steps to making your OWN planner cover at HOME!

What you need:

  • Your cover (whether you print it from home, use a folder, etc.)
  • scissors
  • laminator (or contact paper)
  • hole punch

diy cover 1


Print your cover (I have a couple of already designed sets in the Etsy Shop). You might want to print on cardstock for thickness. The dimensions for the Happy Planner Cover are 7.75 inches by 9.75 inches

Laminate your cover. I use the Purple Cows Hot and Cold Laminator, and LOVE IT!

Cut out your cover. I rounded the edges on mine when I cut:

Take the cover or page off your Happy Planner and line it up with the edge of your new cover. Using a Sharpie or other pen, make marks on the BACK of your new cover for the punches.

Using your scissors, cut slits from the edge to the holes you just punched. You might need to make the slits a tiny bit wider than just one cut.

Click your cover into place and you are ready to go!!!
