2014 Monthly Planner Decorating

January 3, 2014By 6 Comments

Shopping at the best crafty store ever, yep the dollar store, we picked up a couple 2014 planners. We just had to decorate them!

2014 red2014 pink

First we laid the planner over a piece of felt to make sure it would fit…. and it did!

Step 1

Make a small slit at the spine to help with the fit

step 4

Next add a bit of hot glue (Kristina ran the glue gun as they hate me) along the edge.

Step 2

Carefully press the felt to the glue without burning your finger tips….ouch!

Step 3

Trim the corner a bit then add glue to the top and bottom edges

Step 5

and press the felt down.


Finally SMOOSH it closed and decorate! umm someone got carried away and forgot to photo the decorating part…….

  1. So very cute and love that you used simple dollar store planners for this. And I know what you mean. Every once in awhile I am doing something to post on my blog and catch myself forgetting to take pictures of the process. So, you are totally not alone on this! 🙂

    • The dollar store has tons of great crafting supplies and tons of fun things too. My newest dog, Macy, is a power chewer and kills any toy within a day, so I have started picking up toys there or braiding scraps of jeans together for her. If she destroys them in a day or two, no biggie. I like shopping inexpensive when I can! I am so easily distracted, it’s a miracle that any pictures get on the blog (ok I cheat, sometimes do the craft twice lol).
