Today I am going to talk to you about covers, dashboards and dividers. I will share with you some ideas on how to make your own dividers/covers and what to put on them. Here is a disclaimer: while I have loads of ideas, I am a bit clumsy with my execution :). So, what do you need to make your DIY covers/dashboards and dividers? A cup of coffee and creativity. A laminator would be useful as well :D.
Anyhow, enough with the babbling. Here are some ideas:
🌼 A drawing
My 3-year-old niece drew a drawing and I laminated it. I get to keep something so cute and precious ❤ ❤ .
🌼 Lined paper
I laminated some lined paper. I can now write on it, then erase whatever I wrote, and use it for something else later on.
🌼 A quote
I found a quote/image I liked and laminated it.
This ribbon looks so pretty and girlie. It was from my niece’s christening and now I have it in my planner 🙂 . Now be a bit careful cause I am not sure everyone can do this without setting a fire or destroying their laminator. Mine worked fine. Nothing happened.
🌼 Digital paper
There are lots of patterns on Etsy which you can buy and then laminate and use as a divider. This one was shared on my blog a while back (so if you like it check out aestheticaddiction’s interview in the planning category in the sidebar). Alternatively, you can use scrapbook paper or even a plastic bag you liked (this idea was shared in one of the Facebook groups I am a member of, so cannot take credit for it).
🌼 3D laminated paper
I used 3D stickers that are intended for wall decorations and made a 3D cover!
🌼 Sticky notes
I laminated Notes and To Do sticky notes. I can use these many times for notes that can move around in my planner. I would use this for more general Notes/to DOs.
I laminated plastic flowers (yes, the ones you have in a vase). Now be a bit careful cause I am not sure every one can do this without setting a fire or destroying their laminator. Mine worked fine. Nothing happened.
🌼 A photo
This is a photo of me and my cousins when we were young. This is going in my colour crush!
🌼 Other ideas?
Well, you can laminate:
💐 Your wedding vows/a love letter
💐 Your wedding invitation
💐 Your baby’s foot prints
💐 A card
💐 A ticket from a concert you went to
Anything you want to remember and puts a smile on your face.
