I love buying a new planner at the beginning of the year, so when I saw the latest collection of Papaya Art’s weekly planner, I knew that I had to get one for myself!
One of my favorite things to do to planners, like any artist, is to put my own personal touch on it. However, I found it a bit challenging to alter an already beautiful piece of art. So for this project, I decided to keep it simple. By adding just a few things, like a couple of photos, an envelope, and some ribbon, I customized the planner for my needs. Also, keep in mind that Papaya Art’s weekly planners make a great gift for an artsy friend. Create the perfect present by pairing one of the planners with a journaling pen or a set of art supplies, and wrapping it in some pretty ribbon tied in a bow
Personalize Your Weekly Planner Instructions:
First, select some of your favorite photos, and then edit and crop them to the correct size. Print, trim, and glue the photos onto the inside cover of the weekly planner, and adhere a Prima Marketing Insta-scrap Transparencies over the photos.
Embellish an envelope with a light stitch using white thread. Dry brush on a light layer of gesso over the front of the envelope and edge with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink mini; let dry. Next, stamp the envelope with a sentiment using permanent black ink.
When you’re done with your envelope, fill it with a handful of Project Life title cards. Use your favorite pen to doodle, write notes, or to jot down a favorite quote onto the cards.
Finally, thread some ribbon through the binding, making it long enough to hang down and use as a bookmark or place holder.
