I’ve been slowly chipping away at getting organised. and one of the things I am doing is putting together my own diary for next year. I have purchased a “Dodo PersonalPOD” folder that is the same size as a personal filofax.
I am in the process of working out what sections I want the planner to have but I have settled on a few planner dividers already;
- Separate sections for each month with a monthly planner in.
- More detailed pages for each month that can be put in and removed so that there are no more than three months in there in detail.
- Bright, cheerful and inspiring.
“Molly Makes” issue number 45 had some really lovely free papers in it and I had seen to pictures of American planners that had a lot of inspirational quotes in them (I’m a sucker for a prettily presented inspiring quote) and I wanted to copy that.
I decided to make my own monthly dividers with pretty backgrounds that I would find cheerful and inspiring. I found some inspirational quotes on Pinterest and printed them out onto photo paper.
I used a computer graphics programme to draw out simple divider shapes and I used a font that I liked to write in the name of the months. I then cut the papers to fit my printer and printed straight onto them.
Gluing the quotes onto the front, cutting the dividers out, laminating them and hole punching them gave me tough and cheerful dividers. The whole process took about three hours and I now have a computer file for the dividers that I can use to make dividers for other areas of the planner.
A win/win in my book 😉 Mollie Makes #46 is out now with more free papers. Time to get my thinking cap on!
