DIY Dollar Store Planner Journal Organizational Clips

DIY Dollar Store Planner Journal Organizational Clips is what we have for you today. What better way to get organized for the New Year than to create your own clips to get organized with crafty dollar store finds! I love to create new things that inspire me. January usually inspires resolutions, organization, and creativity. What better way to be creative but combine the two!

A Creative Journey with Melissa A Date to Remember Stamp Set

A Creative Journey with Melissa Everyday Alphabet Uppercase and Emoticon

Acrylic Stamp Block

Scissors

Paper Trimmer

Binder Clips from Dollar Store

Clothes Pins from the dollar store

Washi Tape from my stash

Here is a sample of the DIY Dollar Store Planner Journal Organizational Clips we will be creating with washi tape.

If you aren’t familiar with washi tape, washi tape is a thin paper tape that is removable and super easy to work with! You can even rip it with your fingers!

Here is a close up of one of the clips and how simple and easy it can be to create!

This is what I got at the dollar store… It cost me $3.00 plus tax and I had enough to create 56 DIY Dollar Store Planner Journal Organizational Clips! HOW AWESOME IS THAT!

For the clothespin clip I used a thinner washi tape. It just so happen to fit perfectly on this clothespin size!

Here is a close up using the washi tape of the first DIY Dollar Store Planner Journal Organizational Clips.

It is super simple to use the washi tape and you can just rip it with your fingers. It also is super easy to remove and place back on!

Here is the side profile of the DIY Dollar Store Planner Journal Organizational Clips with washi tape.

Use your scissors and trim so the edges are even for your DIY Dollar Store Planner Journal Organizational Clips.

Now you will place your washi tape on the other side and rip off the excess.

Use your scissors to trim off the excess more precisely.

Take out your binder clips and your washi tape. Be sure that the washi tape fits well on the binder clip and use the best size fit for the look you are creating it for.

Place your washi tape on your binder clip as shown above. Rip off the side. leaving a little bit excess.

If you slowly rip off the sides of the tape using the binder clip, you can get a really nice finish.

It doesn’t always work perfectly as you can see but it was still usable so I kept it.

If you aren’t sure or want to be sure, just use your scissors for a more precise trim.

Now we are going to create some binder clips with stamps using the A Creative Journey with Melissa A Date to Remember Stamp Set and the A Creative Journey with Melissa Everyday Alphabet Uppercase and Emoticon stamp set.

Take out your stamp block, Jan stamp and ink. Place your stamp on your block and ink. Ink your stamp.

Stamp Jan on your paper for your DIY Dollar Store Planner Journal Organizational Clips.

The first time I stamped Jan, I pushed too hard so it was a bit blurry. I turned over my paper and re-stamped on the other side and pushed a bit lighter and it came out perfect as you can see above.

Take out your A Creative Journey with Melissa Everyday Alphabet Uppercase and Emoticon stamp set.  Take off your M A I L stamps off of your stamp sheet. Place them on your block and ink your stamps.

Stamp your word MAIL on your paper. Apply adhesive to the back of the paper and adhere to your binder clip.

Place adhesive on the back of your JAN paper and apply to a binder clip to add to your DIY Dollar Store Planner Journal Organizational Clips!

Here are some of the clips I have created! Super simple, inexpensive and will help you organize! ITS A TRIPLE WIN!
