I have this really weird habit of trying to find the prettiest package of Kleenex boxes I can when we have to get some new ones at the store..
And you know what?
There was one box that I actually couldn’t even throw away this time because it was so pretty and I knew there just had to be some practical way to use it!
So I started looking at it, and it just so happened that my planner was sitting right beside the box when it dawned on me, what about planner dividers?
Duh! It was so simple I’m surprised I never thought of it before.. Then again, no, not really!
So after weeks of protecting an empty Kleenex box sitting on my desk from whoever’s taking out the trash, I finally got around to making the dividers yesterday afternoon. And here’s the simple, step-by-step tutorial for them!
Empty Kleenex box(s) – You get two dividers from each box
Washi Tape (optional)
I actually didn’t even realize I had matching washi tape and kleenex boxes until I started trying to figure what tape to use.. Imagine that! So here I just picked a couple of thin tapes to use as the outer border underneath the wider tape.
Now here is where your punch comes in handy.. I have the Staples Arc planner system (which isn’t very widely used I’m learning!) and so I have the big Staples Arc punch. (This has been really handy to use for different charts, lists, and extra planner pages I’ve added!)
So when punching your dividers, you just have to remember that they are made from cardboard and that cardboard is quite a bit thicker than paper.. So you’ll want to be careful as it might be a bit harder to punch than normal!
