I have been reading Organize Now! by Jennifer Berry and I love all the great ideas that she gives to help simplify and organize your life!! One of the suggestions is how to use a daily/monthly planner to help keep your life in order. Of course being a teacher, mother, and wife means my planner is like my bible, I can't live without it! For some reason I picked a boring, down right not exciting planner for this year. Why? I don't know I guess I must of been in a hurry when buying it and didn't think twice, so I decided it was time to give it a make over.
I started by choosing two coordinating pieces of scrapbook paper, some ribbon, and a few number stickers.
Next, I cut the scrap book paper to size and using Modge Podge I stuck it to the front of my planner. Then using my decorative scissors I cut my second piece of scrapbook paper and used my Modge Podge and layered it on top of the first scarp book paper.
Now, I was ready to add my decorative ribbon. I began by weaving it in and out through the existing three ring wholes that were already in the planner and tied a nice bow at the bottom.
Finally, I added my number stickers to label the current year, and there you have it a Planner Makeover.
This is much better than the boring, ugly planner I was using, don't you think?
Today I am linking up with these great blogs:
