Planner Dashboard by Mik Godinho

Wednesday, August 19, 2020

Hi friends! It’s Mik from Papermiks! Who loves snail mail? I do, and today I’ll show you how I used Paige’s Accordion Mini Album cut file to make a penpal dashboard.
When opening the file, you’ll find all the pieces joined together. To make the accordion dashboard you must separate the pockets, just as you do to separate each item to cut them. Here we’ll use only the inner part of the file - we won’t use the items from the cover.

I started separating the heart from the first page to create the dashboard. I ungrouped the heart, removed it and left the insert on 6x8” size for the dashboard. So, I returned the heart to the center of the 6x8” page, removed the dotted line, and transformed the opening of the mini album into my dashboard. In the place of the heart, I created a shaker. I think it gives a fun touch to the page!

Then I put the accordion pockets at the back of the dashboard. This gives my dashboard an interactive touch and I love it! Now it's time to decorate! You can use this idea to keep the memories of your penpals or you can adapt it to any other type of planner.

I hope you’ve got some inspiration from this idea and enjoyed it! If you have any question or want to talk more about planners, leave a comment below the post or check out my IG account. Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!

  1. This is just FABULOUS!!!!! LOVING the envelope paper, the heart and the pockets!

  2. You are super talented making things fold out of a dashboard! It's really eye stopping with Horizon too. Love the bright green, pink, blue and yellow popping of the navy! Your penpal is going to flip out! 😆 Cheers dear 🥰
