Affordable & Easy Planner Sticker Cutting Tools + Giveaway

Slice ceramic-blade products are fantastic planner sticker cutting tools. These easy to use gadgets are affordable & fun to use. Perfect for cutting printable planner stickers!

I love free printable planner stickers.  There is nothing like finding adorable printable stickers that will fit perfectly in your planner for free.  I do not, however, like cutting those stickers.

When I use regular scissors, it takes me so long to intricately cut the printable planner stickers.  I am not a planner perfectionist but like to have them look just so.  I am ready to pull my hair out by the time I am done cutting a page of free printable planner stickers.

(And, no, I do not own a machine like Silhouette or Cricut to help me out here.  Way out of my budget!)

As a planner girl, I am a firm believer in saving money where I can.  (More money in my pocket=more washi tape!)  I love a great deal-especially on quality products that I know can help me with my planning.

One day while browsing Pinterest (my #1 search engine), I discovered Slice™, a company that produces ceramic-blade cutters.  After investigating their products, I knew that these safe and effective cutters would be perfect for cutting free planner stickers.

You see, dear planner friend, I am a bit of a klutz.  I am banned from using any sharp objects in our home.  After a major incident involving my attempt at cutting a bagel, my husband has very wisely agreed to help me out in this area.  So, finding safe products to use while cutting my planner stickers is a must.

I reached out to the company and did a major happy dance when they offered to send me some of their goodies.  I practically turned cartwheels when I tested out the products and they worked way better than my expectations!

How To Make Skinny Washi Tape: A Planner Hack

Check out this DIY skinny washi tape planner hack! Super easy and quick to do. Convert your favorite washi tapes into skinny washi tapes!

Hey all you planner lovers!  How many times do you spot the most gorgeous washi tape but you wished it was skinny?  Like you fall in love with it and have so many ideas on how you can use it to adorn your planners-but it’s just a tad to wide?

My planner friends, I must tell you that I find myself in this conundrum all together too many times.  As I browse through my growing washi collection (with that big goofy smile of “Ooh!  I love all the washi in the world!”), I become inspired.

Look at those purples!  Check out this polka dot gold washi!  The gears upstairs start turning and visions of washi tape are dancing in my head.

With a child’s delight (because washi tape makes you feel young again ,right?), I carefully select my washi tape rolls based on colors, patterns, and textures.  There is nothing finer that putting together the perfect mix of washi tape with all your other planning accessories. (Please tell me that I am not the only one to get giddy when that just-so color combination  is found!)

The snafu that I run in to is when one of those washi rolls is too wide.  Sure, I have tried to cut it down but I end up botching it and ruining most of the strip of washi.

Not one to let something hold me back from finding a hack or tweak, I knew that a practical and easy solution could be found.  To my sheer joy, I found a simple answer that I hope blesses planner lovers everywhere.

Easily convert your favorite washi tape into skinny washi tape with this DIY planner hack.
Ooh! See all the pretty skinny washi tape in blue glitter! One of my favorites! (A bit crooked-my three younger boys were “helping”)

 

DIY Skinny Washi Tape With Only 2 Materials!

Yes, ma’am!  I said only 2 materials!  Oh, and a paper trimmer (or scissors if you have steady hands!).

What 2 materials am I referencing?

  1. Washi Tape
  2. Wax Paper

That’s it!  Most of us have wax paper on hand (and if you don’t, run to your local dollar store and pick up a roll for cheap).

Here is an super easy DIY planner hack to make your own skinny washi tape.

 

Make Your Own Skinny Washi Tape In These 4 Easy Steps:

You can use a ruler to measure for exact size skinny washi tape you will make with the planner hack.

1. Determine the length of strip of washi tape that you will need.

Measure the length of the planner space you wish to cover.  Or just make it as long as you like and then trim down.

Using a ruler to measure for the size strip of skinny washi tape you will need helps prevent waste. More pretty washi to go around!

3.  Align your strip of washi tape on your paper trimmer (or use a ruler as a guide if you are using scissors).

 

4.   Cut your strip of washi as skinny as you like.

This DIY planner hack for skinny washi tape is super easy and great way to convert your favorite washi.

 

**Tip:  You may want to try a small strip before using an entire length.  Take care with washi tape made of glitter and fabric.

Voilá!  There you have your skinny washi tape in any width you desire!
