How To Design Planner Cover
By Khadija's Creative Mind on May 9th, 2014 Working with Paper crafts is always interesting! After trying creating some fun & quick crafty stuff with washi tape, Now I have tried some more fun now, I just decorated a plain diary/planner with some washi tape. A plain look seems dull & boring, which I don’t like really!! so I decorate it with some colors & shine! yeah !!
Washi Tape Crafts are my new addiction these days, I just enjoy trying random fun ideas with these pretty tapes gifted by my friend from Singapore.
Let’s see what I have done & the how-to..
Designing this planner cover was not something difficult to try, it will take hardly 10 minutes & you are done.. A quick idea for redesigning a plain cover/planner with some colorful touch.
It was a plain white diary, So I started working on..First I design the sides & then did some doodle & freehand design with a black pointer pen. I draw here too..
Step by step I apply these paper tapes & complete the designing. and when its done, use mod podge gloss for sealing the surface, (I thought to use mod podge sparkle but finally i decided to use gloss.. If you feel its getting sticky with any paper or thing, you can use zero sand paper between the glue coats.. be sure to use sand paper when the glue is totally dry, otherwise it can disturb the design.. so be careful..
Some freehand fun & design! with colorful tapes design, these doodles are looking better with the colorful tapes now!
Here are the many tape rolls I am having, I can’t stop crafting on & on with these. Let’s see when they will get finished & I will be stopping creating with these .. haha
Here is a Before & After look.. let’s see..
Doesn’t it seems well now? I am happy with the end result..seems cute really! I apply a paper doll popup sticker too..
This above my very first experience with washi tape, I design some washi tape quick crafts with these when I got the tapes. see some archives & enjoy!
You can try these crafts with kids as they like working with easy & colorful things, while teaching them about colors, you can teach through these colorful activities.. And i bet they will be learning much better & quick..
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Have a blessed Friday my friends..
