Daily To-Do List: Free Productivity Printable

Hello everyone!

I have a fun, little productivity printable to share with you today!

YAY for to-do lists! YAY for printables!

I love a good to-do list and thought this would make a great addition to all of the printables I have available on my blog!  I actually have a few different versions of to-do lists that I’ll be releasing over the next few weeks!  Get excited!

How does this work?!

I have a PDF file for you down below with this printable inside.  When you open and print the file, you will see something that looks like this.  I have added crop marks to this printable, so you can easily cut it down to fit in your A5 planner or mini binder.

How do I cut this thing?!

I like to use a paper trimmer for projects like this.  I have a Fiskars cutter from Jo-Ann’s for all my paper crafting projects.  I used a coupon and got a great deal on it, so if you’re looking for a cutter, I recommend one from Fiskars.

I line up my crop marks with the blade of my trimmer and cut the first two sides.  Cutting the last two sides can get a little tricky if you don’t know what to do.

To finish cutting your printable, follow the steps outlined below.

On one side of your print, line up the crop marks and cut almost all the way down the side of your sheet.  Don’t cut this strip all the way off though.  Leave 1/2 an inch or so uncut.

You can see what I’m talking about in the photo above.

Leaving the cut strip still attached, swing your paper around, line up your last mark, and cut as usual.

This is what you should end up with!

This may seem a little tricky, but after you do a few of these, it’ll become super easy!!

Once you have your printables cut, all you have to do is hold punch them (or not), and then you’re ready to start listing!

As I mentioned above, this printable is great for A5 planners and mini binders!

You can also print this file at various percentages to make it larger or smaller to fit your needs.  I can’t guarantee the quality of the print at different sizes though.  Considering this printable is just text and lines, I don’t think it’d be too distorted though when printed at a different size.

DIY Ribbon Hair Ties, Headbands, and Planner Bands

Hi everyone!

I have a quick and super easy craft to share with you today!

We’ll be making some fun ribbon hair ties!

IMG_4747Supplies:

  • Ribbon elastic (Mine is from Joann’s)
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Lighter

IMG_4710The Joann’s nearest to where I live recently started stocking a ton of fun elastic!  When I saw this display, I just had to buy some elastic and make some of my own hair ties!

IMG_4753The elastic I bought will be doing double duty.

I’ll be making some hair ties and some planner bands to keep my planner shut.

I was sure to buy elastic colors that would coordinate nicely with my planner but also with my outfits!

IMG_4870The first thing I did was measure a hair tie I already had.  I believe this one is from one of the packs they sell at Sephora.

This hair tie measures about 3 1/2 inches (folded), so I added a little bit of length to that (to account for the knot) and cut my elastic.

IMG_4872The length of elastic measured about 8-8 1/2 inches before I folded and knotted it.  Make sure you take your wrist size into account when measuring your elastic.  I have really small wrists, so I make my hair ties a little smaller.

I like to tie the knot about an inch or so from the ends of the elastic.

IMG_4879After you tie your knot, cut the ends of the elastic at a slight diagonal.

IMG_4881Take your lighter and quickly run it over the cut edges of the elastic.  Don’t hold the flame to the elastic too long or it will catch on fire and let off a horrible burning smell!  Trust me!  I learned that real quick!!

The flame will melt the ends of the elastic together and keep the edges from fraying.

I used a candle lighter for this portion, because I was afraid of getting too close to the flame!

IMG_4874We’re going to repeat the same process for the planner bands.  The only difference is that the planner bands are double the size!

Each band uses about 18 inches of elastic.

If you don’t have a planner you can make headbands like this instead!  I’ve seen lots of girls wearing those, and they are super cute! 🙂

IMG_4887I ended up making nine hair ties!

I accidentally used too much elastic for my white, glitter planner band, so I only had enough leftover for one hair tie! 🙁

Live and learn!

IMG_4886Here are my finished planner bands!

Don’t they look great?! 🙂

DIY Confetti – Easy and Fun!

Hi everyone!

I have a fun and SUPER easy craft for you today!

I’ve been wanting something to add a little pizazz to my Instagram photos recently, so I decided to invest in some confetti.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to buy exactly what I wanted, so I decided to make my own!  Making my own definitely didn’t save me money, but that’s okay!  I got exactly what I wanted!

IMG_4007Supplies:

  • Paper punches
  • Cardstock
  • Scissors

IMG_4016Simply use the punches to cut out lots and lots and lots of your desired confetti shapes!

I found it the easiest to start with a whole sheet of cardstock, punch out a complete row, and then cut that strip away.  In the end, you’ll end up with a bunch of punched out strips like the ones above!  You could also cut the strips and then punch.  Whatever floats your boat!

IMG_4051I went to town and punched out lots of different shapes!

I bought my punches during JoAnn’s most recent scrap booking sale, so they we’re out of a few punches that I wanted. 🙁

I still managed to get my hands on a few fun ones!  As you can see, I got a medium heart, a dove, and a small circle.  I also got a small heart.  I just haven’t made any confetti with it yet.

IMG_4036Look how cute! Doesn’t it just jazz up the picture?! 🙂

Happy Crafting!
