Making school supplies personal is always fun and obviously something I love to do! This year I opted to make my own binder inserts for both the front and side of my binders. I personally have two 1.5″ binders. I use one for my Monday, Wednesday and Friday classes and the other for my Tuesday and Thursday Classes (this includes labs for me).
I have put together an easy tutorial (and included a few freebies of course!) on making personal binder covers!
I began by making a blank 8.5″ x 11″ “workbook”.
Then I used a brush I downloaded (I am sorry I do not have the original link) to make a chevron background. I also did some with Lilly Pulitzer backgrounds (just drag your favorite print and resize to fit). You could do this for any pattern, print etc. that you wish.
I added my monogram to the center to make it personal. You could also add a fun quote or picture depending on your preference.
Here are what mine looked like in use. I had some issues with printing in color with a full size image (due to my schools system for printing) so I ended up trimming the edges and mounting it on a piece of colored construction paper.
I also did the same above process (with different sizes) to make side inserts.
Okay, now for the fun freebies I have made for you all! To download, click the image and then save to your desktop. Print out and enjoy!
You could print any (or all) of these and add stickers (maybe a monogrammed sticker?) to make it ever more personal!
And, in case any of you do binder inserts for MWF and TTH you can use these:
