Hello everyone! It’s Jennifer here, and I wanted to share with you some of the ways I like to use sticky notes in my planner. Of course, sticky notes are great for pre-planning your activities in your planner until you’re ready to decorate. Did you know that they’re also really great décor elements? This week, I’ll be using the September Popfizzpaper kit to decorate both my Happy Planner and my personal planner. The personal planner inserts I use are the Sew Much Crafting vertical week on 2 pages. Grab your tape runner or glue stick and let’s get started!
First, I will walk you through the sticky notes I used for the week in my Happy Planner. Did you know that the width of the sticky notes included with the Popfizzpaper kits are almost exactly the same size as the width of two Happy Planner boxes? Here, I used two sheets of sticky notes to cover up the part of the Saturday and Sunday boxes.
Two sheets placed next to each other like this cover up about two and a quarter full boxes for each day. This gives the effect of having double box stickers on your weekend! Don’t you just love the gems and the blue watercolor background?
This week, I layered my usual washi strip weekend banner and the kit weekend banner over the sticky notes. This gives your planner a very polished look. I also trimmed down a sticky note to cover up the monthly calendar in the top left of the spread.
These sticky notes will look great in personal planner spreads too! First, I got my super sharp craft scissors and fussy cut the gem banner out of one sheet to use as a weekend banner! Isn’t that adorable?! I was able to get a couple of blue watercolor half boxes out of that same sheet too. I also made a couple of full boxes: one with the gems at the top, and one with the gems at the side. The one with the gems at the side will look so cute paired with some of the weekly kit dot stickers to make a checklist!
Popfizzpaper sticky notes pair perfectly with the monthly box kit weekly sticker sets! I’m so excited that they’re a permanent addition to the monthly boxes now! What is your favorite way to use sticky notes in your planner? I’d love to see! Please tag me on Instagram @paprikaplans or post in our Popfizzpaper Fans Facebook group!
