Cinco de Mayo Blog Hop Fiesta Time!

Welcome to the Sabor Papel and Craftwell 
Cinco de Mayo Blog Hop!

Today I have an easy planner cover tutorial for you in celebration of Cinco de Mayo! I love decorating my planner for holidays, so I knew when I saw this cut file in the Silhouette Design Store, I had to make a planner cover for Cinco de Mayo!
Sabor Papel Ole' collection card stock
Fiesta cut file from Silhouette Design Store
Self laminating sheets
Happy Planner Punch

1. Open the cut file from the Silhouette Design Store and cut out design on Sabor Papel Ole' collection Sorpresa card stock.

2. place the design inside the self laminating folder and follow directions to laminate design.

3. Cut down image to 7.5" x 9.5" to fit your Happy Planner and punch the corners with your Crop a dile

4. Use The Happy Planner punch to punch the new cover

5. Place the cover on your Happy Planner and start the fiesta!
