DIY Goth Planner Dashboard

So, in my continued mission to make a bunch more DIY Planner posts, I thought I'd show you all my  planner dashboard. Basically I wanted a landing page that I would see when I first opened my planner without decorating my first divider. It ended up being super simple, but here's what I did:


For this project you will need:
  • Black cardstock (Or whatever color really. For Halloween I'm planning on making one out of Halloween scrapbook paper.)
  • A pencil 
  • A holepunch
  • Embellishments (optional)
  • A white pen (or silver/gold, which would be very pretty on black paper. You could also use a plain black pen if you weren't using black cardstock, or stamps/letter stickers.)
  • Laminate (optional)
I started by cutting the cardstock into my desired shape, using one of my already existing dividers for a template. This divider is from a set by My Pretty Week on Etsy. I cut the dashboard to be slightly larger than the divider and without a tab so that it would neatly hide everything behind it. Then I traced the holes with my pencil and hole punched them.

 Now to add the embellishments. For my dashboard I decided to add this little articulated skeleton from the Halloween Scrapbooking section of Michaels Arts and Crafts store. To attach him, I glued just his head and torso down so that the hands and legs can move around.

I also wrote my name in white ink and on the back there is a note card with my contact information just in case the planner gets lost (not shown here for obvious reasons.)



























And now when I open my planner I am greeted by my adorable little skeleton friend. You can also see one of the pagemarkers that I made back in June.

Have you done any DIYs for your planner lately?
