A good start for 2011

To live happy in a busy life, you need to stay organized. Not everybody has a fancy smartphone to keep track of everything. So here's the good old paper planner:

Grabbed from the dollar bin in a craft store

And there is how to glam it up a bit : 

Pull the plastic over and remove the stickers

Grab your glue

some cute scraps out of your stash

Glue the fabric to the cover

Use your rotary cutter to trim the excess fabric

Put the plastic cover back on

Ready to start the new year organized...


  1. This is such a cute idea, Caroline! I love fabric covered anything:) I love the beginning of a new year and buying a new date book with the hope of organizing all the chaos.

  2. I will be showing this off on Crafty Tuesday tomorrow 1/4/11. Stop by Random Crafty Georgia Girl and grab my featured button.

  3. Love this idea. I am a pocket calendar girl too. I've made these using the tutorial on Moda Bake Shop but your way is much easier! Would love for you to come visit me at Sew Chatty and link up to Made with Love Monday. I host every week. I am leaving the party open longer this week so that people can link up multiple projects if they wish to. Hope to see you there!


I would love hearing from you. I read all comments and time permitting will respond to all.
