I saw these super cute planner pockets over at jumpyjess’ blog and had to make them for myself. I also thought I should share them with you all as well.
They are super easy to make, very useful in any planner or journal/notebook, and it adds some color to those plain white pages.
- Scrapbook paper (color of your choice the thicker the better, so it will hold up longer)
- scissors or paper cutter
- hole punch
- paper clips, sticky notes, or other small frequently used items to stuff into your new folder
- I started off with a 9×12 piece of scrapbook paper and cut it into four equal parts (4.5×6 inch rectangle) You can make you pieces of paper longer or shorter depending on the size of your planner or notebook.
- I folded my 4.5×6 rectangle so that the back was slightly larger than the front about 1/3 of an inch.
- Glue down one side of your folder
- On the other side line the folder up where you want it to be in you planner or notebook. With a pencil mark little lines where you will need to punch the holes.
- Punch the holes where you just marked.
- If the rings on your planner or notebook open go ahead and pop in you new folder if they don’t, like mine, cut a slit in the side of all the holes you punched. Now you can slip the ring into those slits.
- Fill up your folder and you are ready to plan.
I made a bunch for my planner, one for each month, and one for my notebook.
