DIY Planner Diary Inserts

Hi everyone,

I just started using a planner last year and found it's a very useful and pretty way of keeping track of my doings. Many of the DIY inserts I made last year can be used again (at least until I feel inspired to make new ones), but I needed new diary pages.

Now, I could have ordered a pack pretty cheaply online and had it delivered tomorrow, but why do that, when I have a paper mountain to use up, as well as a punch which is designed to make the two groups of three holes needed to fit my planner???

So, I decided to DIY them, whilst binge-watching Being Human. It's all drawn freehand and deliberately wonky so it was easy to do. It took me two or three hours and I goofed a couple of times when I lost concentration during the exciting bits, but I got there in the end and I'm very happy with the outcome. Here's a peek ...


Nothing fancy, and the paper's a bit thin (I just used cheap copy paper) but it does the job, and I will decorate it as I go along with stickers, masking tape and suchlike.

Now I just need to sit and fill in all the lovely stuff I have planned for this year ...

Thanks for visiting me today, see you again soon :o)

Why buy one when you can make your own? Looking fab and so much more special than a store bought one!

Such a cool idea. I love it. Can't wait to see how it works for you. I need to get something like this too and I have tried them all.
