Handmade Planner DIY with We R Memory Keepers All In One Tool Bookbinding Guide Sandra Dietrich Mojosant

Welcome to my blog and a handmade planner DIY. The design of the planner is simple. And it's not very difficult to make this project yourself. The planner consists of a cover with a spine (size 0.5"). The inside has two slip-in pockets to hold a handmade journaling booklet and also a cute accordion fold album. With this wonderful handmade planner, you are ready to document your memories. I'm sharing a link to my YouTube video for this planner further down. Make sure to watch the video ♥.

WRMK Handmade Planner DIY

To make the handmade planner, I recommend to use the All-in-One-Tool and the Bookbinding Guide by We R Memory Keepers. In addition, I used the Fernwood Paper Collection by Vicki Boutin for American Crafts.

How to:

1. Cut a piece of patterned paper to size 8 1/4" x 7 1/2".
2. Score the paper at 3 7/8 from the left and the right side. Fold the paper along the scoring lines. This will give you the planner cover with a spine measuring 1/2".
3. Make a journaling booklet by cutting two pieces of paper. Cut the front cover to size 3 1/2" x 7 1/2". Then cut the back to size 3 1/2" x 7".
4. Score the front cover at the top - at 1/2". Now attach the back cover onto this fold (1/2") of the front cover.
5. Cut blank pieces of paper for the journaling pages. The pages need to be 3 1/2" in width. The length can vary, depending on the size of the blank paper you have at hand.

8. Create a second slip-in pocket on the left side.
9. Decorate the cover and the inside.
