Hey all you crafty gals, how are you all doing? Today I have a great and quick craft to add some storage to your planner. I walk you through happy planner version here but you can easily make it for your Erin Condren or binder.
- 1 sheet of paper (works best with double sided paper)
- Tape runner
- Additional Embellishments.
If you are doing this for a happy planner then you need to fold the paper in half (short sides together) and very carefully punch the paper before folding the pockets up.
Once you have folded the paper in half you want to open in back up and fold up the bottom edge of paper about two inches from the bottom this will create the second and third pocket. all you have to do is fold it back in half with the "pockets" facing outward. Using Tombow's tape runner I sealed the bottom of the pock making the big fold creating a large main pocket.
Next we get to decorate! Now I wanted to use the gorgeous camera washi that came in the in the August Add - On Kit, the problem though was that it's a bit transparent so I used my patented cheapo trick! I laid down a foundation plain masking to help well mask the background from overwhelming the washi.
At the last minute I decided to punch an half a circle in the front half of the main folder pocket for a little interest. All I have left now is the final decorations for the a of visual interest and because I can't leave anything alone!
I added a few cute phrases from the summer phrases kit that came also in the August add on. To top the look off I added a cute camera border that I zipped off on my Silhouette to tie in the camera theme and then some orange enamel dot and that's all she wrote. I hope this tutorial was useful and I'd love to see your projects.
