hello Fall | Today Page Marker Hack for my Filofax

Decorating my planner is not something I spend tons of time on. If anything,  I add some washi tape to the ring side of the page or maybe a countdown calendar. I carry around a couple different page designs of Gratitude inserts because sometimes I forget to tuck my travelers notebook Gratitude Journal into my tote bag. I really do use my planner as a planner, not another memory keeping project because I feel like I have enough memory keeping projects to keep my busy.

But, I do like to look at pretty things, even in my Filofax. While I was trimming my Fall Bucket List journaling cards, I wondered if I could hack it to use as a Today page marker.

Well I tried and I think it worked pretty well! The DATE tab peeks out just enough for me to find my page and it's sturdy enough since I printed it on 110 lb. card stock.

Let's Make It

After printing my Fall journaling cards, I knew I wanted to use the Hello Fall as a Today marker and had to figure out a way to have room to punch holes for my Filofax planner. Take a look at the photo below to see how I trimmed my cards to do that.

After the trimming, this is how my card looked. I used black and orange washi tape {find more washi tape rings like the one I'm using} along the bottom edge of the card and a silver glitter tape along the edge where I punch the holes to fit into my planner.

After I glued the DATE die cut, I added more striped washi tape and trimmed the excess card stock from around the die cut.

Now I'm all set for Fall in my Filofax. And if you don't want to open the rings every day to move your page marker, check out this tutorial.

    1. Hi Krystyn! The journaling cards are all sized to 3x4 so they should work in your ProjectLife perfectly. I'd love to see a photo when you take one. Happy Fall!
