Alice Through The Looking Glass Movie Inspired Planner Charm

 Hi planner friends, Tammy here with a really fun planner charm tutorial featuring the new printable from my friend, Laura Bray. When she released this new printable in her Etsy store, I knew I was going to have to make something for my planner inspired by the new Alice Through The Looking Glass movie. I found a really pretty tassel at Michael's, so I decided to make this planner charm with it. It was so easy to make, you can make one for your planner also!

Harlequin cardstock
Purple and white polkadot cardstock
Black bottle cap pendant
1/8" Hole punch
Lobster clasp
Split rings
Butterfly charm
Blue tassel from Michaels
Glitter epoxy
Photo paper
1" punch
3/4" punch

  Print out the Alphabet Printable from Laura Bray Stationery on photo paper. I started with the 8x10 version and downsized it on my printer to a wallet size photo.

 Cut out the initial you would like to use for your planner charm.

Run the pieces through a Xyron machine to create stickers.

Add some color to the pieces with markers and then stack the pieces on top of each other on the bottle cap. To protect the image, you can add a round epoxy sticker on top.

Add the tassel and butterfly charm with a split ring to the bottom of the bottle cap. If your bottle cap doesn't have a hole, use a 1/8" hole punch to make a hole. 

Attach a split ring and lobster clasp to the top of the bottle cap. If you use a Happy Planner, you will also need to add a ball chain ring to attach the planner charm to.  

 I love how my planner charm turned out! I also can't wait to see the movie! I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use the printables from Laura Bray Stationery. If you make a planner charm I would love to see it!
