DIY Filofax inserts


I seem to have been working on loads of things that I can’t quite share with you at the moment, so I’m really pleased to be able to share this project with you at last! I had been meaning to revamp my Filofax inserts for ages but didn’t get around to it for the start of the year. However, I tend to work in academic years anyway because of my current day job, so I decided to do it anyway!


I’ve written this tutorial for Less Grafting More Crafting, which is the craft business that I started last year with my partner-in-craft, Daria. We’re focussing much more on online stuff now that she’s a Mama, so we need to be super organised with our craft time and the posts that we’re scheduling! So I decided to make it my blogging Filofax – this will hopefully mean that between the two blogs I’m really organised! 🙂


You can see the full tutorial here, but I thought I’d put a mini gallery here so you can get an idea of what it’s like. I have a massive obsession with washi tape at the moment, and I’ve used it a lot to customise the pages! I’ve bought many tapes from the lovely Jen at Moon Stick Supplies – she’s got a fab selection (look out for the zebras – they’re my fave!).



It’s really easy to revamp your Filofax/organiser – and so much fun! 🙂

    This is a wonderful idea, and one which I will actually try and put to use, especially for the organizing of blog posts and ideas, etc. Thank you for sharing!

      Thank you so much! I’ve found it super helpful to have a diary for blog posts and ideas. And it’s really fun to customise it too! I’d love to see any pictures of yours when it’s done, so do send me a link here or feel free to post some photos on my facebook page (the link is at the top of my blog) 🙂

    I don’t have a Filofax but I will definitely try this out with my planner and notebooks! Thanks for sharing- will definitely check out the link for the beautiful ‘washi’ tape! 🙂

    those inserts look great, certainly better than the ones you get from filofax, they have become so expensive! 🙂

      I know – they are really expensive and I don’t think the quality is as good as it used to be. To be honest, scrapbook paper can also be really pricey so I try to look out for it in the sale! 🙂 I didn’t realise what a big thing the whole Filofax customising is until I started looking into it for this post!

        I didnt realise it was a big thing either, but its such a great idea that Im not surprised at all 🙂
