I thought to make my ugly planner look cute. I need to be resourceful and use whatever materials available here at home so I would not have to spend anything. Another bulb-lighting idea..."tadaaah" as I saw my old jeggings which has a hole somewhere (and I haven't been using it for like 4 months already).
So this is what I did:
I cut the jeggings into size same with the planner, enough to cover outside with margin inside for securing
I sew the upper and lower parts together so it would seem like a pocket
I tuck the front and back cover of the planner to the sewed pocket of the planner cover
My jegging's fabric was stretchable so it would stretch upon securing it on the planner. I would look like this ----->
outside... and would look like
<------- this inside....
For a bit of twist, I put a "lock" or securing thingie for my planner. I sewed a piece of cloth from the back and just put a large button for decoration. On the front, I put a large button and made a whole on the cloth
It would be used to somewhat "lock" or "secure" the planner...like what we usually see on a normal planner.
I decided to decorate my planner with different buttons to make it cuter and edgy. The buttons were all junks.
So basically, I spent PHP180 or U$D4 for the planner, and just 3hrs for the cover (no cost at all!)....
There are plenty of ways to make a planner cover. It it best to do whatever available resources available and avoid unnecessary spendings. You are being resourceful and creative, and at the same time recycling!
