Custom Planner Dividers

Custom Planner Dividers

Hi friends!  Layle here to share with you my process for creating my own custom dividers for my Carpe Diem planner.

I love making dividers!  There's something about working with a smaller canvas that makes me happy!  And I love that I can switch up dividers with the season & even my mood :)

I made 5 different dividers recently for my planner using the new SN@P! Basics papers and products from the Life in Color collection

To create the bases for the dividers I started with 5 sheets of the woodgrain SN@P! Basics 

The first step was to cut the paper down from 12x12 to the standard A5 size - 5.83x8.27.  You could either measure the dimensions out with a ruler, trace or trace an existing divider.  Because I make dividers pretty frequently, I marked these dimensions off on my trimmer with washi tape 

This made it really quick & easy to cut my dividers

Once I had two sheets each cut of each pattern, I glued 2 sheets togther, punched and adhered tabs, then punched the holes


Once my divider bases were done, it was time for decorating - the best part!  

On this divider I cut down a 4x6 card to fit, applied adhesive to sides and bottom of the card & then adhered to the divider to create a pocket.  Not only is it decorative, but it's functional as a place to store stickers!

On this divider I adhered a pocket to the divider for more storage - this time for the Life in Color Washi Paper Tape sheets

Sometimes a simple 6x4 card with a few coordinating embellishments is all you need for a fun custom divider

I hope I've given you some fun ideas for creating your own custom dividers for your planner!
