I love the idea of creating different things for planners and am learning how to make different items for my TN.
I wanted to make a laminated dashboard for the front of my planner that was pretty and functional… Here’s how I did it.
As I use an A6 TN, the postcards you can buy from paperchase are the perfect size and I loved the message on this one.
Then I had to choose what to use on the back…. I had some lovely samples of scrapbook papers given to me that were also A6 size so decided to use two of these to make a very simple pocket at the back.
This is a stage that needs to be done with care and accuracy.
The front and back parts of the dashboard need to be lined up, leaving a small gap (approximately 1cm apart dependant on how much space you would like in-between them, I will explain at the end) and then the pocket put on a spare bit in your laminating pouch. For some planner sizes you may need to use two laminating sheets.
The back picture needs to go on the left and have the picture side down. Then the front goes on the right facing upwards.
Once laminated cut around the pocket and then around the dashboard (keeping the two sides together. Then fold the dashboard in half.
