DIY Planner Dashboard

I wanted to do a little refresh on my planner now that I’ve been in it for a month. I was looking at beautiful dashboards on Etsy and after contemplating the prices and the wait for shipping, I decided to just make my own!

What you’ll need:

I kept it extremely simple and easy with this DIY! I grabbed some scrapbooking paper, my planner sticker stash and got to work. This took me probably 5 minutes in total.

First I went through my scrapbooking paper and chose a double sided paper that I liked. I went with this spring-y yellow polkadot and flower patterned paper:

Next using an insert from my planner I measured the paper and used my paper cutter to cut it to size. With the remaining scrap paper I made a little layering piece for the front of the dashboard. I love using double-sided scrapbooking paper because usually the patterns and colours go well together and create a nice mismatched look without clashing. I adhered the two pieces together with my tape runner (I’m obsessed with these things).

Once I had my colour scheme I went to my sticker stash to find some form of embellishment for the front of the Dashboard. I ended up choosing a banner sticker from last years Erin Condren Life Planner to write my name on.

Finally, I slid the finished dashboard into my clear pocket from Filofax to keep it safe and fastened into my planner.

Finished Project

The result is a bright cheery addition to my planner! I love the use of new colours and I think it will be fun to even make different dashboards seasonally. It’s a great way to go through your collection and use some things that may be collecting dust!
