altered daily planner

finished planner

I bought a plain pink spiral board book at Target. I altered it to make a daily planner. I completely took it apart and added different elements-pockets, envelopes, photo sleeves. I cut the pocket envelopes to fit and used a square hole punch in order to put everything on the spirals. I used cardstock, patterned paper, stickers, decorated paper clips. It has several different sections, as follows:
1. finished planner(covered in scrapbook paper with embellishments)
2. photo sleeves(from $1 photo book from target) and colored index cards
3. misc. pocket envelopes
4. family birthdays and a pocket calendar(from Michael's for .50)
5. address labels(mine and my husband's) & addresses and phone numbers
6. lists of my favorite blogs
7. blank colored cardstock and a pocket for misc.
8. stickers of my favorite things!
9. different sized envelopes, postage stamps and white index cards
10. frequently used e-mail addresses
I absolutely love how it turned out!

Great work. ANd if the weather forecast is any indication, you'll have lots of time to start the next project this week.
