Monthly Planner Dashboard

Hey there We R readers! Laura here today sharing how to create a monthly planner dashboard you can use each month with your planner. Dashboards can be used to hold important information you need to see at a glance, or to divide up your planner.

I started by cutting apart a fun Crate Paper calendar sheet that had all 12 months of calendars on one page.

I used a 4” x 6” waterfall photo sleeve and placed the calendar inside towards the bottom. The fuse tip on the wood burning USB tool works perfectly to create a pocket for the calendar to sit inside. I left the left side of the pocket open to be able to change out the calendar each month.

Next, I punched holes in the side of the pocket using the planner punch board. I used the guide on the bottom of the board to determine where to place the standard hold punches for my Heidi Swapp planner. If you are having trouble punching through the plastic, place a sheet of paper underneath it before punching.

I added some iridescent glitter and rainbow party confetti into the top pocket and then fused the side closed. Make sure to fuse it closed on the opposite side of the hole punches so that the glitter doesn’t fall out from where it is punched.

The label maker is perfect for creating a fun dimensional label on the pocket. I used a pretty pink label tape and the sans serif font wheel to type out THIS MONTH. I cut a V shape on each side of the label and attached it to the front of the pocket.

I fused some FUSEables die cuts to the front of the pocket. I added a coordinating butterfly and a heart.

To make sure the plastic doesn’t tear from repeated use, I added some cardstock hole reinforcers to either side of the dashboard for all four holes using some adhesive and the hole reinforcer punch.

This planner dashboard is so fun to look at the start of each month.

I love that you can change out the calendar each month, so it can be used the entire year in my planner.
