Upgrade A $1 Dollar Planner

I have been looking for a planner for a while now.  I was in Dollar Tree and spotted this one.

I didn’t like the design, so I decided to give it a little update.  I inspected the planner and noticed that the plastic around the planner could be removed.  Since it could be removed I knew I could make a different cover.  This is a picture of the inside of the planner.  You can see the plastic cover can be removed.

I took a look on the computer and found some images that I could modify to make the planner cover.

I printed the images on Card stock.

Next I inserted the pages into the planner cover.  I did have to trim so they would fit inside the cover. This is what my daughter wanted for her planner.

I wanted mine monogrammed.  This is what mine looked like completed.

I think it looks much better personalized.  It was a quick and easy update. What do you think?
