Washi Tape Planner

Washi Tape Planner

Hi everyone! I’m back from my trip and I’d like to show you this planner that I made a while ago. It’s great for staying organized throughout the year, and it’s made out of a notebook! It’s a weekly planner with two sections: a calendar with school subjects and a separate notes section. Here’s how I made it:

First, I made the cover. I used scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, and a label which I designed on PicMonkey.

(Sorry the photo is black and white. It came out terribly so I took out all the color, in hopes that someone might at least consider it artsy. The planner cover is really green.)

For the inside pages, I drew a grid with a black pen. Then I labeled the dates and “Notes” section with Washi tape and a navy blue sharpie. I wrote the month in the top left corner of each page and decorated empty areas with quick highlighter doodles.

Sorry I don’t have a lot of pictures this time. I wouldn’t recommend just copying my planner! Make sure you adapt it to meet your scheduling needs and favorite colors. Oh, and a warning: The planner works very well, but it does take a lot of time to make. You can make the entire planner during the summer before the school year starts, or make each page a week in advance. Whatever floats your boat! (Do people still say that?)

Bye for now!

Duct Tape Notebook

What’s the best place to store your latest duct tape ideas? In a duct tape notebook, of course! Today I’ll be showing you how to make one. It will be 48 pages long! You’ll need 3 pieces of plain old, regular copy paper (8.5″ x 11″), and some duct tape.

1. Cut them into fourths, like the diagram shows. 

2. Stack the fourths on top of each other horizontally and fold them in half like a book.

3. Create a duct tape sheet (see my tutorial) that’s 12 cm by 17 cm.

4. Hold the duct tape sheet horizontally and fold it in half like a book, then put it around the paper so it acts as a book cover.

5.Open the “book” to the center and staple it in the middle crease. Ta-dah! A notebook!
