Hello! It’s Jennifer again! I’m back to show all you white-space planners a quick and easy way to adapt checklist stickers to your Happy Planner! Let’s plan! This week I’m using the re-release of the Chasing Rainbows kit for the Happy Planner.
Of course all PopFizzPaper kits all come with full box heart checklists in either Erin Condren or Happy Planner size. I’m more of a white space planner, and I prefer using the old-fashioned checklist stickers that are also included in the kits. However, if you’re using a Happy Planner, you’re left with a rather unattractive gap at the bottom of the box because the checklists are sized for Erin Condren planners.
With this simple technique, you can eliminate the gap and give your planner a nice, pulled-together look at the same time. First, I lay down the top row of headers. Immediately under that top row of headers, I put down a strip of coordinating washi. Don’t put your checklist sticker down just yet. Decide what you’re going to do with the “afternoon” headers. This week, I decided to use the gradient full boxes with rainbow kit. Of course you can also use a second set of headers.
Once you have the stickers down covering your second row of headers, go ahead and carefully lay down your checklist stickers in the top row of boxes. To ensure a perfect fit, I layer the checklist sticker ever so slightly on top of the washi. The flag shaped bottom of the checklist sticker will layer nicely on top of the stickers on the second row. All 6 circles for your checklist should line up nicely with the white space area, leaving you with plenty of room for your to dos for the day!
Doesn’t that look much better than the big gap without the washi? Do you have a favorite way of adapting stickers to your planner? I’d love to see! Please tag me on Instagram @paprikaplans or post to our Facebook group!
