Stampin Up Love Today Planner How To Protect it when Transporting.

Stampin Up Love Today Planner How to Protect it when Transporting.

Hello everyone. Yesterday I showed you how I was going to use my planner as a portable craft room and keep as many samples of everything Stampin Up in it as I could.

Today I am answering the many queries that people have asked about how to carry around you Love Today Planner, in the car or in a handbag without it getting battered.  When the Love Today Planner arrives it comes in a very sturdy cardboard box. Do not throw this away as with a little thought it can become the perfect storage solution.

Firstly I painted the outside edges with white Gesso (a chalky finish artists paint) and let it dry thoroughly.  I also painted inside the flap opening of the box and any areas that might show so the brown cardboard was painted.  The I took two full sheets of dsp.  Now as I wanted mine to coordinate
with the Love Today Planner I used some retired dsp in Night of Navy although any dsp would work.
Two sheets it perfect to cut a front, back, top, bottom and two sides. Measure your box and then cut accordingly.  To make the dsp even sturdier I painted the whole thing with PVA glue (mod podge) and then left it overnight to dry.

For decoration I used the daisy punch, some stickers and some die cut letters (Timeless Type Alphabet is retired) the Large Letters Framelits would work perfectly.

Decorating is a real personal choice and with so many lovely Stampin Up products to choose from you can make it a real work of art.  I am going to look for a gold magnetic clasp to fasten then top to make it more secure and I may use decorate the other sides.

So now I can transport my Love Today Planner and know that it will stay in pristine condition as I have a fun box to carry it in.
