Planning on a Budget: DIY Planner Tassels

Hey Planner Lovers!

A few weeks ago I helped host a planner meet up on Oahu. Our group is called Oahu Planner girls, check it out! Anyway, at the meet up we had a few games and craft projects for the girls to do. My job was to create one of those craft project. I chose planner tassels!

I know some ladies don’t have a lot of time to sit and make planner things but for those of you who do, I wanted to share the printable I made. The directions are super easy to follow along and can be modified. You can make the ribbon shorter or longer and you could add more strands if you prefer.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Want to see something else on the blog? Leave a comment below with your suggestions. Also, if you do make your own planner tassel we would love to see. Use the hashtag #OPGtassel on Instagram to share your creation with us!


Planning on a Budget: DIY Mini Happy Planner

mini hp

I have had a Happy Planner for about six months now. When I first bought the planner, I decided I wanted the planner to be a stay-at-home memory keeper. I’d jot appointments and things that were accomplished during the week or special events that took place. During the past couple of weeks, my Happy Planner has become my main planner.

The downside of using the Happy Planner as a “main planner” is that it is not very travel friendly. The planner takes up a lot of space in my small purse and it is hard to plan on the go. I recently seen a post in the MAMBI Happy Planners group where someone tweaked their planner so that it was a bit smaller and much easier to carry around. I loved the idea of it being a bit smaller so I decided to give it a try. While trying it for myself, I wanted to create an easy to follow video for anyone else who may want to turn their HP into something a tad more portable.

If you would like to make your Happy Planner similar to a personal size, remove two discs and fold the paper up so that the notches line up with the next two discs. For easier access to your pages, cut off the bottom two notches of each sheet so there is no need to hook and unhook the pages each time you plan.
