You might remember that I was looking for a way to add a side bound notepad to the inside front cover flap of my Filofax Finsbury a while back. I found a way to do that, thanks to a link my Filofax Friday partner Francine sent me, and last month I shared how you could create your own notepads using everyday white glue and copy paper, you can find the tutorial here.
I thought I would go a step further and create another way to add notepaper to your planner. These measurements are sized for the pocket Finsbury, but play around a bit and I'm sure you'll be able to make something just like this for your favorite planner.
Although this tutorial is sized for a pocket planner, you can easily modify the measurements to fit into into any pocket flap your planner may have. Because the notebook can easily be pulled out, without having to fiddle with the papers in the rings, my daughter that constantly wants to draw and doodle and write stories, can create to her hearts content.
After trimming your desired papers, I used notebook, graph and copy paper, clip them to the card stock to hold in place and then flip over and staple from the front cover to inside cover. That ensures that the flat side of the staple is what shows on the spine and the folded part of the staple is inside the notebook.
Insert your DIY notebook into your planner pocket and enjoy. When this one is filled up, I'm sure you'll want to make more! I embellished my notebook spine with washi tape and a layered sticker from My Mind's Eye.
See, even closed, there's plenty of room to stuff your planner full, even with the DIY notebook included. If you'd like your own copy of the 2014 notepaper you see in this post, you can find it here, it's available in pocket size, personal size and A5.
