Wrap Around Ribbon Bookmark

Do you remember the planner I bought this year and then personalized it by adding vinyl to the front?
Because it was a cheaper version it didn’t come with anything to mark the day.
It was starting to drive me crazy flipping through the planner numerous times a day to check my schedule.
So I made a bookmark (or planner-mark).

I simply used a piece of ribbon and a 1 1/2 piece of elastic to make the bookmark.
I sewed the elastic to one side of the ribbon.

Then the other.

And slid it over the planner.
Now the ribbon marks my place for a week at a time and I don’t have to flip through the pages anymore.
I know it’s such a quick and simple solution but one that saves me aggravation.

Do you have any quick solutions that have saved you from being annoyed or aggravated?

    Oh, I like this.
    Usually, I just fold down the previous pages – from the top corner, into the spine.
    Then, when it’s opened it’s already on the page I want.

    But, your solution is prettier!

    That’s a really neat idea. I use a decorated binder clip on the weeks that have already passed, that way I could still flip through future pages.

    Love it! I just bought this same planner based on your blog post about it. Currently i have a paper clip in it but this is a cute idea!
