A year ago, I purchased a beautiful Webster's Pages Ring Bound planner, only to find out later that it didn't serve my intended purpose. Disappointed and unsure of what to do with it, the planner sat on my shelf, collecting dust. However, as part of my spiritual journey, I had been searching for a journal that resonated with me but couldn't find the perfect fit. That's when a light bulb moment struck—I could repurpose my Webster's Pages planner into a Traveller's Notebook! Join me on this creative journey as I share how I transformed an unused planner into a stunning and personalized journal for my spiritual and manifestation practices.

A Planner Rejection and a Quest for a New Purpose 

Let's rewind to a year ago when I stumbled upon a beautiful Webster's Pages Ring Bound planner in a Facebook destash. Like any planner enthusiast, I couldn't resist the temptation and added it to my collection. Little did I know that fate had a different plan for this planner, and it would remain untouched on my shelf for months. Eventually, I found myself eagerly awaiting the arrival of a mini Happy Planner, hoping to combine it with my Webster's Pages. But alas, destiny had other plans, and disappointment struck when the mini Happy Planner didn't fit snugly into my Webster's Pages.

The Birth of an Idea: Turning Ring Bound into Traveller's Notebook

As the rejected planner sat on my shelf, a new quest emerged—a search for a journal that resonated with my spiritual journey. Countless hours of online browsing failed to yield a result that captured my heart and inspired me. Just when I was about to give up, a memory sparked—an image of my forsaken Webster's Pages. Eager to breathe life into it, I grabbed the planner and embarked on a new adventure: transforming it into a Traveller's Notebook.

The Transformation Process Unveiled

With determination in my heart, I gathered the necessary tools and set out to document the process. First, I measured the spine of my Webster's Pages and carefully marked the placement allowance for the holes. Using a revolving leather puncher, I meticulously punched the holes to ensure the sturdiness of the spine. To add an elegant touch, I incorporated golden eyelets using my trusty eyelet pliers. Finally, I covered the holes from the removed rings with washi tape, completing the transformation from a Ring Bound planner to a beautifully customized Traveller's Notebook.

Painting the Cover: Aesthetic Enhancement

In the coming days, I plan to unleash my creativity and give the cover of my Traveller's Notebook a cosmic and celestial makeover. I envision using acrylic paint and watercolours to achieve a blended and ethereal effect. By incorporating intuitive colour choices and symbols, I aim to infuse the cover with meaning and inspiration. Stay tuned for an upcoming blog post where I'll share the painting process and the final result.

Embracing the New Journal: A Rebirth

As I held the transformed Webster's Pages Traveller's Notebook in my hands, I felt a sense of accomplishment and connection to my creative spirit. This rebirthed journal now carried the weight of my spiritual journey and the potential for profound manifestations. With excitement in my heart, I eagerly awaited the pages to be filled with synchronicities, manifestations, and insightful discoveries.

Repurposing my Webster's Pages Ring Bound planner into a Traveller's Notebook has been a rewarding and fulfilling experience. It's a testament to the power of creativity and the ability to find beauty in unexpected places. This project not only salvaged an unfit planner but also provided me with a journal perfectly suited for my spiritual journey. Remember, with a little imagination and resourcefulness, you can transform neglected items into something meaningful and unique. Stay tuned for more creative projects and inspiration.
