Simple Stories & Xyron= Planner Dividers

Xyron is excited to be joining up with Simple Stories
over the next couple of weeks in sharing cool projects with
some of the newest collections and awesome adhesives!

Today I have a set of DIY Planner Dividers that I created with the 

I made these for my daughter's Carpe Diem Planner (also by Simple Stories)...this collection
was perfect for her personality and so much fun to craft!

To get started:
 I grabbed the collection kit, ephemera pack, sticker brads and the 9" Creative Station filled with the double-sided laminate and Mega Runner.

Next, I trimmed the 12X12 papers down to 8.25" X 12" and then scored in half to create
 a 6"W X 8.25"H  size when folded.  Depending on the size of your planner, you will want to 
make adjustments accordingly.

I then applied a run of the Mega Runner adhesive around the top, size and bottom of the paper.


Now that the paper is adhered together, it is then placed into the Creative Station and 
carefully rolled through the laminate.  Next, I press around the edges to really seal the 
laminate in place.  Just trim away the excess and you're ready to punch holes!

I used one of the notebook papers from the planner and placed it on top of the laminated page.
After lining up the holes, they were punched with a Crop-A-Dile (or hole punch).






Above is a look at the four dividers!  You can see that I also added various journal cards,
die-cuts and stickers before adding the laminate.  I also attached the sticker brads and other 
pieces to the outside of the laminate pages.  By using some metal clips that I had on hand, I
was able to add some misc. tags to the tops.
