Hey guys, Dani here! I've been using my personal planner a lot lately, so I knew I wanted to make some dividers using the floral papers in the May PopFizz Planner Kit. I make my dividers as low-tech as possible, usually not even laminating them. #aintgotnotimeforthat
Now, I know there are a million tutorials out there on how to make dividers and cut files and fancy machines and whatnot, this is just how I do it. I just use paper, scissors, a pencil, hole punch, and a set of template dividers (or old ones I have lying around).
I just grab a piece of the paper I want to use and trace around my template. I really like doing it this way because I can position the design of the paper exactly where I want it to be on the finished product. If you weren't picky about where the pattern ends up on your dividers (or if you have a uniformly patterned paper), you could get 3 dividers out of one piece of 8.5"x11" paper (the size that comes in our kit).
Then it's just the task of tracing and cutting out each divider with some old-school scissors. When they are all cut out, I line them up and use a binder clip to keep them all together. I also clip in the template, but you could just trace where the holes need to be. Time to punch!
All done! I varied the pattern of the dividers by changing up the placement of the template when I was tracing them out. I like how each one is different! At this point, you could laminate them, but since I change out my dividers pretty often and am gentle on them, I decided to leave them as-is.
Super pretty, right? And perfect for spring. How will you use the papers that came in your May Kit? I'd love to know, so leave us a comment down below!
