Total Project Cost: $3
Total Project Time: 5-10 minutes (depending on whether you have a stitch unpick/ a good hole punch)
I suggest taking your Filofax along with you to the shop OR simply knowing the measurements of your organiser prior to purchasing (if you don't already have one at home) a business card holder, to avoid purchasing a card holder that proves to be too big or too small for your organiser.
I picked up a $3 Card Holder from my local Kmart that matched my Personal sized Finsbury beautifully, and then went about making my own 'hack' Filofax Card Holders.
Apart from the $3 purchase of the card holder, I already had a hole punch (I have a 2 hole punch), a bright marker, and a stitch unpick at home. If you don't have a stitch unpick (I'm a bit of a DIY sewer) then small scissors and a toothpick/ bobby pin will work just as fine.
I unpicked the stitching that held the plastic card holders to its casing, once you unpick the first few stitches the rest should come along like a domino effect. I do suggest taking your time, it won't take too long if you are patient with the process.
Next I took out my clear top-opening plastic envelope that came with the Filofax and used this as a guide for the holes. As I have a 2 hole punch, I simply went about each hole individually and took care as the plastic is obviously a different texture to printer paper and can require a little extra momentum with the hole punch.
This is the result! The great thing is I now have just about 90 spare card sheets! Who wants some business card holders for their Filofax? haha
I will be focusing this weeks blog posts on Filofax (you don't have to have one) Organisation/ DIY's, in the hope of helping other people who may be looking for new ideas on organising their own Filofax and especially those who are on a budget but still want to personalise their Filofax where they can.
I will be doing a Filofax Domino giveaway once my blog reaches 50 members!
