Tutorial: Making Transparent Planner Dashboards

I recently shared a photo on Instagram of a transparent planner dashboard that I created as part of my Christmas set up. I offered to film a quick tutorial showing how you can easily create your own if there was enough interest.

Well there definitely was, so as promised I filmed and posted a video to YouTube yesterday. Today I’d like to share that demo with you.

I’m going to share with you how to create a unique and whimsical transparent dashboard, like this one here, for just a couple of dollars.

If you’d like to skip right to it, the video demo is at the bottom of this post. First I’ll give you some other information and a couple of helpful links.

To create your dashboard you’ll need a laminator like THIS ONE that I use and some window clings like these you see here. You can find something similar at your local dollar store.

You’ll also need laminating pouches. I use THESE that I got from Amazon.

Start by placing your window clings inside the laminating pouch, positioning them to fit the dimensions of your desire dashboard size.

A handy tip is to use another insert or dashboard as a reference so that you know that your placing your design elements inside the desired dimensions.

Run your pouch through the laminator. I run it through twice, but that’s a matter of personal preference.

Next, trim your laminated dashboard down to the size you want.

Punch holes in your new dashboard. I like to use THIS 6 hole punch.

And finally, slip it into your dashboard… it’s that easy!

Here’s the video tutorial. I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Happy planning!
