DIY Sticker Sheet Planner Insert

I love using stickers in my planner. It’s an easy way to add decoration and accents to your layouts. Most of my decorative stickers live in my disc-bound sticker book, but there are some I recently ordered that are so handy that I want to keep them with my planner at all times. If I just stuck the whole sticker pack in my planner it would add quite a bit of bulk in one place, and that would drive me crazy. So I came up with this simple solution: a DIY sticker sheet planner insert.

This quick and easy craft is a great way to add sticker books to your planner without adding any bulk or uneven writing surfaces!

The stickers that inspired this quick craft are made by Me & My Big Ideas, the same company that makes the Happy Planner. These stickers are great for bullet journaling, to-do lists, color coding, and adding simple accents here and there. You can get them directly from MAMBI, but I’ve also seen them at craft stores (Michael’s and Hobby Lobby) and Amazon.

How to Make Your Own Sticker Sheet Planner Insert

You’ll only need a few supplies for this:

  • The stickers
  • Cardstock
  • Paper trimmer
  • Washi tape
  • Hole punch
  • Double-sided tape or glue runner

Step 1

First you’re going to trim your card stock down to the size that matches your planner. If you use a full-size planner you’re already done! This is going in my classic-sized Happy Planner, so I cut mine down to 7” x 9.25”.

Step 2

Next, run the washi tape along the left side of your card stock, right up next to the edge. This is partially to reinforce the holes, and mostly because it’s pretty! I really can’t resist the sparkly washi! After you’ve added the tape, punch holes so you can add it to your planner when it’s done.

Step 3

Now you need to get your sticker sheets ready. If they’re in a book, carefully remove and separate them. The top edges of mine were a little jagged, so I trimmed them just a tad to smooth it out.

Start with the bottom sheet. Flip it over (stickers down), and run a line of tape/glue along the right edge. Then flip it back over and line it up against the right edge of your card stock. Press the page down firmly.

Add tape to the back of the next sticker sheet along that same edge. Place it on the card stock on top of the first sheet, but scootch it over about a quarter of an inch or so. You want the tape to stick to the card stock, not to the first sticker sheet. Keep adding sticker sheets until you run out of them or until you run out of space. You can always use the back of the card stock, as well.

When you’re done adding sticker sheets it will look like you’ve simply fanned out the pages, and you’ll have a tiny glimpse of all your sheets. Add it to your planner, and mark the card stock with a pretty paper clip. You could also keep it behind a dashboard or divider so that it’s always easy to find.

I love this sticker sheet planner insert because it’s a great way to take your stickers with you on the go without packing around your whole sticker book, and it doesn’t add any bulk or uneven writing surfaces. Plus, it just looks so pretty!

  11. What a great idea! I love my planner, but I’ve never done anything cute with stickers or washi tape or anything.

    • Thanks, Justine! I have so much fun making mine pretty, but beware – it’s a black hole! Once you start you can’t stop! 🙂

  12. I have bought these because I like the idea of them and how they look, but then stop using them after a few days. If it’s not on my phone, I probably won’t use it.
