Removable Sticky Note Dashboard with Xyron

Katie King CircleHello Everyone! Like most people who have planners, I love sticky notes! To be honest, I have always loved sticky notes and have used them in my planners for years. However, until recently, I had never heard of a sticky note dashboard (crazy, I know). Since my planner has a spine that can’t be opened, adding a ‘’pre-made’’ sticky dashboard is sort-of out of the question. So, I decided to make my own and that is what I will be showing you today!

Today, I am going to show you how to make a Removable Sticky Note Dashboard using Xyron! If you are unfamiliar with Xyron they are a company that creates products to enhance and protect your handmade creations. Some of the products that they are best known for are their sticker makers, creative stations, and tape runners. In today’s project, I will be using their tape runner.

This particular sticky note dashboard that I am creating, was designed to go into my Paper House Productions 18-Month Stargazer Planner. Like every Paper House planner, the 18-Month Stargazer Planner is beautifully put together and includes a variety of things. For example, quotes, pockets, several different places to take notes, stickers, etc. Also, if are not a fan of the ”galaxy look”, Paper House has a bunch of planner options ranging from florals to Wonder Women!

Removable Sticky Note Dashboard with Xyron

To create your own Removable Sticky Note Dashboard, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Cut a piece of scrapbooking paper that fits on the inside of your planner. If you are using the 18-Month Stargazer Planner you will want to cut a piece of paper that is 6 ½ inches wide by 9 inches tall. The paper I used for my planner came from the Color Washed 12’’ Paper Pad.

Step 2

Step 2: Grab all of your sticky note pads and lay them out onto your piece of scrapbooking paper. Once you are happy with the layout, flip each sticky note pad over and apply some adhesive to the back using your Xyron Tape Runner. Then press your sticky note pads into place.

Note: If you are wanting to use a big sticky note pad (like the blue pad in the corner) you will want to remove half of the sticky notes from the pad, so the sticky note dashboard doesn’t add more bulk to your planner.

Step 3

Step 3: Lay your sticky note dashboard onto a planner page that you don’t mind covering up. Then grab a piece of washi tape (I’m using the wide tape from the Stargazer Washi Tape Set) and apply half of it the top of the sticky note dashboard, then fold over the half of the washi tape onto your planner page.

To further decorate your sticky note dashboard, you can apply more washi tape around your sticky notes. For my sticky note dashboard, I used the thin gold tape from the Wine Washi Tape Set to outline my sticky notes.

Once you are happy with how your sticky note dashboard looks, you are ready to start using it!

I love how this removable sticky note dashboard turned out! Using the Xyron Tape Runner really made the whole process go by very quickly. In terms of time, I had this dashboard created within 30 minutes. It probably should have taken me less time than that, but I kept changing the layout of my sticky notes!

Speaking of sticky notes, you may have noticed that I decorated my sticky notes. To do this I used the Stargazer Faux Enamel Sticker and Stargazer Life Organized Micro Stickers, which match back to the 18-Month Stargazer Planner. This is totally optional, but I thought it made the sticky notes look a little cuter.

Washi Tape Coasters & Giveaway Winner

Katie King CircleHi everyone! Two things that I can’t get enough of is washi tape and coasters! Washi tape is just one of those craft supplies that you can always use more of and making your own coasters, is just so much fun. On my own blog, I have made coaster sets from clay, wood, calendars, sequins, and more. However, I never thought of combining my love of washi tape with making coasters, until today!

Today, I am going to show you how to make your set of Washi Tape Coasters featuring the Stargazer Washi Tape Set! These washi tape coasters are so easy to make and are the perfect project to create if you are a beginning crafter. This is because the washi tape coasters can be made in 3 steps and only require a few craft supplies.

To make the coasters, I used Paper House Production washi tape! The great thing about using Paper House’s washi tape sets, is that you get both a wide and thin washi tape. Also, Paper House has a variety of washi tape that you can easily mix and match with each other. For this project, I chose to mix and match the Stargazer Washi Tape Set with the Wine Washi Tape Set, to get a galaxy look!

Washi Tape Coasters

To create your own Washi Tape Coasters featutring the Stargazer Washi Tape Set, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1:  Tear off pieces of washi tape and apply them to your coaster in the pattern that you desire. For my coasters, I used the wide purple tape in the Stargazer Washi Tape Set and the thin gold tape in the Wine Washi Tape Set.

Once you have covered your coaster, trim around the edges to remove the extra washi tape.

Step 2

Step 2: Grab a paint pen that matches your washi tape (I used gold) and paint the edges of your coasters. Once the edges of your coasters have been painted, set them aside to dry.

Step 3

Step 3: When your coasters’ edges have dried, grab some Mod Podge (I used Glossy) and paint a layer over each of your coasters. Adding a layer of Mod Podge will seal in the washi tape and add a protective top coat to your coasters.

Once your coasters have dried, you are now ready to use them!

I loved the galaxy look of these coasters!

One thing I wanted to mention, is that if you don’t want to use Mod Podge to seal in your coasters, you could also use Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. I have used Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on coasters before and love the final look. The only reason why I didn’t use it on this project, was because I wanted to create a super simple DIY that didn’t involve too much drying time. If you do use Mod Podge Dimensional Magic, you will have to wait 24-hours for your coasters to dry.
