Planner Clip Storage

Planner clips, I love them! Whether I make them myself or buy them from some of the amazing ladies on Etsy, I just can’t get enough of them. Not only are they functional for marking particular pages in my planner and keeping smaller bits securely attached, they’re also an easy and fun way to add some bling!

While my planner clip collection is still small, I continue to make and buy more. They’re like potato chips, you can’t have just one. Ok, who am I kidding, they’re like Planners… You Can’t Have Just One!

As my collection grows I’ve found myself in need of a way to store them so that I can easily see what I have and where I purchased them. Having that info comes in handy when posting to my blog and social media.

This is what I came up with and it seems to working well for me. Using trading card sleeves and a 3 ring binder I’m able to keep my clips neat and organized. By adding in a pre-printed card that has space for me to write where I purchased the clip and from whom, I have the info that I need at the turn of a page.

I’ve found that this even works with the chunkier polymer clay planner clips, I just clip them to the top of the card rather than push them into the pocket.

To make your own, you’ll trading card sleeves, like these HERE, a binder and some pre-printed cards. I made mine using my Silhouette.

Once your info cards are printed, trim them with your paper cutter to fit the pockets of your trading card sleeves. Standard size will be 2.5 x 3.5. I insert mine so that the info faces away from me so that when I open the binder I see my pretty clips and the info isn’t obstructed on the back, but you can see which works best for you.

All that’s left to do is just stick your planner clip filled pockets into your binder and you’re done!
