DIY Planner Dividers

For several months, I have very successfully been using my bullet journal to get everything daily I need to do ticked off and keep track of long-term projects. I even started a second one for work stuff, but it was getting a little frustrating having everything divided up like that and trying to stay on top of both! I have eyed off A5 Filofaxes for a while – pretty colours, good quality, versatile… And now I have a beautiful A5 raspberry Finsbury Filofax to keep all my personal and business and blog stuff all together and organised!

Midori plastic folders

My Filofax came with a set of standard manila dividers – practical but boring. I had thought of making my own from scrapbooking paper, until I found these divided A5 plastic folders by Midori. At only $3 for a set, I decided to experiment. I used my paper trimmer to slice the bottom seam and the left edge off to cut the dividers apart.

I then rounded the corners so they’re not sharp and punched the holes in the right place. Now I have four pretty and durable dividers for my Filofax!

They are a perfect fit, and I could easily add a label with my label maker if I wanted to, but I like leaving them pretty as they are.
