How to Make a Washi Dashboard for your Traveler's Notebook
By: Megan Kelly (@thoranaplans)
I'm back- this time with a tutorial on how to make your own washi dashboard for your planner! I made one for my TN, but you could make one for pretty much any planner!
What You'll Need:
- journaling card
- washi tapes
- plain white paper
- x-acto knife
Step 1: Pick your journaling card
The one I chose is from Creating and Co. I covered the back with white paper so the design wouldn't show through.
Step 2: Select your washi
Step 3: Find your angle
I placed my middle piece of washi down so I could get the angle correct. Then I started to place washi directly above it. This step can be tricky and I was a little afraid I would somehow get the angle wrong.
I repeated the above step for the bottom half of the dashboard. One "hack" that I use for cutting washi is to use a gift card or old credit card to cut the washi so you don't have to lift the dashboard up every time to cut it.
Step 4: Cut the washi
After I laid down all the washi, I peeled the dashboard up so I could cut the washi hanging off.
I ended up flipping the dashboard over so that I could cut the excess off with an X-acto knife. I didn't use a ruler or anything, the journaling card was thick enough that I could free hand it - but if you're nervous a ruler definitely would help.
And that's it! This was a really fun project and it didn't take long at all to do!
