You all know by now that I have a Happy Planner, and I absolutely love it! With a love for Happy Planners comes a love for allllll the accessories that go with it. There are stickers, sticker books, washi tape, charms, markers, pens, dividers dashboards, aaaaaand……CLIPS!!!!!
Now, we are not talking your standard paperclip here. Noooooo. Those boring, plain, silver or gold wire paperclips we all have in a draw somewhere? I’m not talking about those. I’m talking about the cute little felt, vinyl, paper, cardboard, plastic decorative planner clips that are all over Etsy. So many shops make them now, which is great because I can’t! Lol. However, I do buy a LOT. I now have an insane amount of planner clips, and completely outgrew my storage for them. I needed something better. Saundra’s PlannerShoppe came to my rescue! If you’ve never heard of her amazing shop, definitely click the link above and go check it out! You will not be disappointed! Her shoppe is where I found these awesome trays that I now house all my clips in.
I did, of course, also purchase some decorative cards to put in. Well, I so did not get enough. I very quickly ran out! I didn’t want to keep buying them, because I was sure I could make them myself. I own a Cricut, and my boyfriend had just purchased a Silhouette. Totally doable! So I took my laptop out, and we figure it out. He helped me draw out the shapes in the proper size that I needed.
That’s what they look like. Yes, like a Rolodex! Not everyone knows what those are any more, but they were usually used in offices to keep addresses and business cards handy. I’m using it for my clips. Next, we sent them to the machine to cut.
Finished product! I think they came out pretty good! I used plain white cardstock so they all matched. The clips are lightweight enough, that it works out fine. Then I started putting the cards in, and adding my clips to them.
Voila! There you have it! I now have 2 trays full, and just ordered a third because I’m running out of room again. I know, I’m addicted. It’s ok, I could spend my money on worse things. Guess I will also need to cut some more cards!
