Your planner or family calendar doesn’t only have to be functional – these DIY Planner Stickers will spice things up and make planning fun!
I’m the first to admit that I love stationary and paper goods. Snail mail brings a smile.Perusing the back to school aisle at Target with a basket full of new school supplies is living the dream. Crossing off an item on the to do list in my my planner with a good ol’ black Sharpie is definitely my jam. I got my first planner when I was in seventh grade, and I immediately got busy doodling in the margins and drawing check off boxes next to my homework assignments.
Now that planners are all the rage again, I’m completely smitten with the fact that planner stickers, washi tape, and colored pens are being used full force. I love the idea of making your planner uniquely you, because it makes planning that much more fun. So if planner stickers and such is already a part of your planning repertoire, or you’ve been dying to get your hands on a little DIY planner sticker action to try out – here you go! These DIY planner stickers will make writing your to do list more fun and add a bit of pretty to each and every week.
