How to Make Your Own Happy Planner
Use any paper you like! This is my favorite paper (I have a subscription to it, and I get two reams every few months).
You will also need a punch designed specifically for the Happy Planner rings. I have this one and use it all the time!
Don’t forget a paper cutter! Scissors will work, but the paper cutter will give you sharp, straight edges every time you use it. I bought ones years ago and it’s held up really well.
To create the cover you see here, download the file and print the front and back covers. I recommend printing the covers on cardstock. I used a Happy Planner Classic DIY Cover that I purchased on Amazon. You can buy one here.
This printable prints best on 8.5 x 11 paper and is designed to be cut down to 7×9.25 inches to fit your Happy Planner.
You can print out all of the pages, or just the ones you need. I recommend printing the pages out individually. if you’re printing pages back-to-front (duplex), do this page by page. It takes a little longer, yes, but you will avoid misprints and save paper, time, and ink (trust me on this!). It may take a couple of times to get into the rhythm if you’ve never done this before, but once you’ve done it a few times I promise it gets easier and makes more sense.
Be sure to watch the short video that accompanies this post to see what it looks like all printed out!
Is this planner available in 8.5×11?
Yes! You will find that in a separate post. All of my printable planners come in this size as well as 8.5×11, which is perfect for a 3-ring binder!
What other printable planner accessories do you have?
I mentioned earlier that I have some ancillary printables that go with these day planner inserts. Because there are so many, I’m going to put them in separate posts (what I will probably do is dedicate one week of each month to getting these posts out, because I have 12 versions of this planner and all of the fune goodies that go with them!).
I have the following printables to go with this set of planner inserts:
- Circular monthly habit tracker
- Printable crystal planner stickers
- Printable quote cards to dress up your planner, use on a vision board, or share with someone you love
