Blog Planner Folder RevampBlog Planner Folder Revamp

Do you remember my cute and super useful blog planner? If not you can see it HERE. My blog planner folder had a sun problem LOL it started to loose color and it was getting very ugly so I decided that it was time for a well deserved revamp =D

Blog Planner Folder Revamp DIY/Tutorial

Time and sun can make some damage to our stuff and because of where my desktop is located {in front of a window}, the sun hasn’t been very friendly with my stuff.

Also to be honest is so nice to change the appearance of things so it feels like we have new ones, isn’t it right?

I used a mix of different techniques for this trying to make it long lasting. We’ll see if it worked in a few months LOL.
What you need:

  • An old folder
  • Wrapping paper
  • Ribbons
  • Mod Podge
  • Transparent contact paper
  • Hot glue gun

This was my old discolored folder =(.

The first thing I did was cleaning well the folder and decided how I wanted to decorate it.

I started mod podging it but this time I only used the mod podge to glue the wrapping paper I did not seal it.

When it was all covered with the paper, I glued all the remaining paper in the inside of the folder just like when we cover school texts {sorry the pic came out blurry but you can see what I did}.

Then I covered all the folder with transparent contact paper.

Since I made a diagonal design with 2 different but coordinated wrapping papers I used 2 different ribbons to decorate the space between both papers. I glued them with hot glue.

Tadaaaaa… It’s all done and it looks so cute!!!

I love my new blog planner Folder LOL!!!!

What do you think of this project?… Have you revamped your folders???

    Stopping by from the ‘lets get real” hop. I love the idea of using wrapping paper and simple tools to redo a binder. I have a ton of binders around my house and they could all benefit from a makeover. So pretty! Chrystal @

    Hi Cami! I’m stopping in from Let’s Get Real today. I think this project is so cute! What a wonderful way to update your binder instead of just throwing it away and starting over. (That’s what I would have done.) You are teaching me so much.

    Wow it looks so elegant! I love re purposing, this is great for those less than attractive notebooks that get left behind in the school supply sales! Thanks for linking up to Snickerdoodle Sunday.
