Fun Weekly Box Decorations

Hi Everyone! I’ve been substitute teaching full time and my poor blog has been ignored! But today I want to show you how I use the 12 inch borders that are often used in scrapbooking!

I’m sure you have scrapbooking supplies sitting around collecting dust, right? Here’s a way you can repurpose some of those items and use them in your life planner.


This is an adorable border set that I picked up recently from Hobby Lobby. Most of these come in 12 inch strips as they are designed for the 12 x 12 scrapbooking albums. There are hundreds of patterns and colors available in the sticker/scrapbook sections of your local craft store. Here is what I do with them.


The boxes in the Erin Condren Life Planner are 1 1/2 inches wide by just under 2 inches tall. If you cut the strips into 1 1/2 inch segments, to fit across your boxes in the weekly view, you can get 8 sections from each 12 inch strip.


These can then be placed in your life planner like Washi Tape or a custom Event Sticker.


I found some old scrapbooking supplies and made myself a whole bunch of little strips that I can use in my life planner, or send in RAK envelopes! I love the versatility that these offer and the variety of colors, shapes, and sizes that are available!

All you need is a paper cutter to get the job done. Quick! Go dig through your boxes of unused supplies. You’re sure to find some fun strips that you can trim and add into your planner 🙂
