Hey everyone! If you are like me, which you probably are if you are reading this, then you might be a little obsessive when it comes to sticker books, and especially if a new Happy Planner sticker book drops. This definitely expands your base for tons of creative planner layouts, h-o-w-e-v-e-r it makes it almost impossible to find the perfect sticker! Sometimes I would flip through the books for 10-15 minutes trying to find the perfect To-Do sticker! (First world problems.)
Keep reading if you want to see how I turned this:
Into this, with just a few simple steps.
I have seen quite a few different organizational videos and ideas surrounding craft storage, and basically they all just made me feel as if it was more work overtime you used the stickers. I have seen people take each sheet out, tape/glue them to another piece of paper, and then hole punch that paper, etc etc. That is so much work, and if you’re like me, you will go through that sheet so fast it will be all for nothing!
The road to this nifty idea I had started with shower hooks. I thought, those would fit perfectly in those little planner holes, I can put all my books on there, and I can say goodbye to all these sheets falling out! Nope… they are ever so slightly too thick. (They will work with some prying, but I don’t recommend this.) However, these book rings I purchased from Staples were only $3.99, and I still have quite a few to work with. (which I will definitely need in the future, knowing my bad Michael’s habit.)
Step By Step Instructions
So basically, I took out every sheet and organized them into the following sections:
Holidays (Birthday, St. Patrick’s Day, Valentines, Halloween, etc.)
Quotes and Colors
Food and Fitness
After they were sectioned out, I created the covers. I took the original book binding, and cut off the small top section that binds the front and back together. Then, I attached the colored sides together, leaving one thick cover, white on both sides, with the band still attached.
Then, using the backside of the covers, I covered each one with specific stickers, washi, and scrapbook paper to that section. I would recommend utilizing the sticker sheets that are almost empty, or some of your media that you probably won’t use in your planners. I say this because I hate wasting, and also it will give each section a more organized flow without so many almost empty inserts.
I still have about four planner books I didn’t add to this, because they are going to be used in my next few projects (and I am secretly too in love with them to tear them apart), but whenever I buy or add books, I will simply ADD THEM TO WHAT I ALREADY HAVE. That’s right, I don’t have to create new books, there is plenty of room! Just with these four rings I have about 15 books, so I promise you, this idea will take you pretty far.
