Happy Planner Address Book DIY (kind of…ha!)

I love address books. I’m super old fashioned that way.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love to put stuff in my phone, especially if it’s someone I need to call, or need directions to…

But there is definitely something about old-fashioned address books.

Anyway, I love the spiral bound ones, because they’re easy to write in…except you can’t add more pages. And the 3-ring binder styles are great for adding, except they’re a pain to write in.

Enter… the Happy Planner disc system!

I found these lovely free printables:


Resized at 75% fits classic Happy Planner size, so I printed a couple of each page, and it’s nice to know I can just come back and print more if I ever need.

Anyway, here is what you need to make your own:

*Happy Planner punch

*set of discs, your choice size and color

*set of 8 dividers

*cover (you can buy a set of 3 for pretty cheap at Hobby Lobby)

*label maker (optional)

*pocket folder (optional, also in a multi-pack at H.L.)


Start by adding your discs to the cover of your choice:


Add the dividers:


Then break up the address book pages by section:


Add a pocket folder if you wish:


Then label (or sharpie) the sections:


Voila! You have your very own customizable address book! =D


Adding Happy Planner sticker pages to the new sticker book! (When you run out of the included adhesive sheets)

I seriously love the new sticker book that came out recently-it’s narrower, the perfect size for the sticker sheets that are offered by Create 365! The sticker book kit comes with these handy pre-stick-ified (oh yeah lol) inserts that you can adhere your existing un-punched sticker sheets to. One problem: there aren’t enough for sticker addicts like me, and upon contacting customer support, I was informed that they do not sell extras separately. Well, while I hope they change that eventually, it didn’t help me NOW. I mean, I want to put all the sticker sheets I own in my cool sticker book!

So, being the redneck that I was raised to be, I set out to totally jerry-rig something together. 😉 It actually worked out perfectly, and doesn’t even look tacky! =D

Here is how I did it:

Cut an 8.5″X11″ piece of cardstock in 2.75″x8.5″ pieces (1 paper gives you 4 pieces by cutting in half, then half again). Punch these with the happy planner punch.

Get your glue sticks ready!

Slather that stuff all over one side

Line up the sticker sheets and press well

Do the same to the other side to maximize the use of the inserts, and voila! They fit perfectly! =D
