first, i started with a kit. i don’t always use a kit, but when i do i spread it out among two kits because i’m a white space planner. i don’t normally buy them because they’re not very cost effective for me, but i just love this case of the mondays kit by the glam planner. her kits are expensive AF and take awhile to arrive, but they’re so beautiful! i have two more from her coming in the mail soon. oops. 🙂
the first thing i did with the kit was to cut the bottom washi in half. i used an exacto knife and a cutting map from my brief sewing/quilting days. i don’t need that much washi. it takes up too much space, hence the cutting.
i also used some customized erin condren stickers as headers for my school to-dos. they’re not my favorite, but i have a bunch and i’m going to use them up before i order some thinner ones off etsy.
then, i grabbed some washi tape to make some flags for the weekend banner. it’s easier than you think it is. you just bend the tape in half with the sticky side out. then you cut it at an angle and it creates a cute little flag. i layer them under the weekend banner.
then! i got the week ready by adding in a little bit of deco (decoration), a bill due, my high five for friday list, my cleaning list and midweek list, and a blogging to-do list.
