Creating a laminated dashboard for your 2016 Shining Year Planner

H Readers, 
I was asked by the amazing LEONIE DAWSON to write a tutorial on how I used the To Do List notepaper to create a laminated dashboard, that fits into the 2016 Shining Year Planner. The dashboard  is removable and can be inserted anywhere throughout the planner so you can use it all year long. 

THINGS YOU WILL NEED
One To Do List Page 
A Laminating Machine ( I used a A4 size laminator) 
Laminating Pouches
A Hole Punch
Paper Cutter or Scissors
Binding Template (optional)
Pencil



STEP 1
Place to do list page into the laminating pouch and feed through your laminator. 


STEP 2 
Using a paper cutter or scissors, trim off the excees laminate leaving a small edge around the to do list page. 


STEP 3
Place your binding template over to do list page and mark holes with a pencil. ( I used an old folder cover) otherwise line up your laminated to do list page with the binding of the planner and place a pencil mark so you know where to punch your holes. 



STEP 4 
Carefully punch your holes in your laminated to do list page. Using your scissors cut from the egde of the page into the punched holes. This will allow you to easily insert and remove your laminated dashboard anywhere in your planner. 





NOTE : Before you trim your laminated dashboard (step 2) on the opposite edge to where you punched your binding holes, leave a tab at the top. The laminated dashboard can then become a bookmark for wherever you are in your 2016 SHINING PLANNER!!!!! 

Thanks so much for reading my post and to quote Leonie, "may 2016 be your most SHINING YEAR EVER"

  6. This is a brilliant idea. My only question is about smudging and markers. What kind of markers do you use? White board? Overhead? Other?

    1. Hi, I just use the same markers as I do in the planner, the best i have found is the bic mark it ultra fine point, more pen than marker...i use a bit of eucaltptus oil or alcohol on a wipe or cotton tip to remove each day when i!m finished. Also take a pic of your list if you want a record of it :)
