I never see any planners that I like. I don't like the stiff business leathery looking things. I would like to line my own small binder that I got from Avon, when I thought I was going to be a a rep.

I don't know if I should line the cover with paper or fabric.

Any ideas?

Hi! Paper seems like it would be easier than fabric.

You could buy some nice paper (like maybe handmade or origami paper), cut it to size, spread some white glue on with a sponge brush, and then layer the paper down.

you could do the same thing with non-fraying (or lightly fraying) fabric.  just do the same... coat with glue or spray-mount onto the cover and you're set.  i made some magnets with fabric this way and they look great.

it's also pretty easy to make a fabric book sleeve... i'm sure you can google a pattern for it, but it's basically cut out a larger chunk of fabric, press over and stitch, fold over a flap for each cover and stitch again.

as for paper... you could always do a collage which is fun.  i like to use illustrations from old childrens books (you can easily find in thrift stores).  or use old sewing patterns (those illustrations can be really cool).

the gal behind www.disgruntledhousewife.com had a really nice planner she put together in her web store.  i'm not sure if she mentions how she pieced it together, but i'm fairly certain she did it herself.  maybe a look at that will help?

i know that since i'm a crazy decoupage fool, i just decoupage over the ugly planners that i happen upon - usually ends up being pretty cheap and cool looking.

i would use fabric and paper!

just use spray adhesive [i love this stuff, but dont get it on yer floor like i did] and glue the fabric on the front and fold over the excess sides on the inside of the book.
then on the inside, cut a piece of paper just smaller than the size of the cover [one for the front, one for the back] and glue that over the fabric that hangs over.

i hope i explained that well enough.
i could post some instructions with pictures if you want.

If you use paper, make sure its very sturdy.  fabric would be sturdy and a little weather resistant.  

I plan on doing planners as well, but have been throwing the idea around of how to bind them.  I really want to use a binder, but I can't find the hardware anywhere, adn I really don't want to just buy a binder and rip it apart.  I think I might do the grommet and ring thing, but does anyone know of a harware supplier?

I need a dig camera!
