Megan Futo of @megansonfireee was kind enough to share her DIY planner clip crafty knowledge with us today. She PMed me and showed me the bat bujo clip she made using the Halloween Bullet Journal Kit and I was WOWED! I asked her if she would teach us and she said yes! So, without further ado, here's Megan.
We are taking the stencil off of the Bujo page and upping your top game. Top game? Ehhh, what is she talking about? Fun and fancy paper clips for your Bujo or planner! The MoxieDori Halloween kit is perfect for this and you can have a new clip in 5 minutes or less, I promise. Let's get started.
1. Gather Supplies
Gather your supplies. Clips can be made from paper, felt, fabric, vegan leather, the options are endless. For this tutorial I chose the vegan leather and my hot glue gun. If using paper for your clip, a glue runner works well.
2. Use the Stencil to Trace
Pick your bat size and trace. I chose the second smallest bat on the Bat Scene stencil for my A5 Moleskein because the scale is perfect for the journal and a full size paperclip.
3. Cut out the Bat
Cut out your bat and backing piece. My backing piece is about ½ inch in length and about ⅝ of an inch in height.
4. Assemble the Bujo Clip
Center your paperclip over the back of your bat.
5. Glue Together
Add a pencil eraser sized amount of hot glue to the backing and place it down centered over the paperclip and bat.
6. Almost There!!!
Press firmly! You want the backing piece, paperclip, and bat to become one.
Admire your work and enjoy!
