Filofaxing as a new trend and creative hobby
The filofaxing trend has hit the net today, and this fact is a little surprising at first glance. Because in today’s “digital” world it is much faster and easier to save all appointments in the smartphone or computer that remind us of the important dates, instead of using an old-fashioned scheduler. The second variant has a special charm for many people and this is exactly why the filofaxing trend arose. It’s actually about decorating each individual page, with the protective cover remaining undecorated. This is what the appointment planner looks like, but when you open it you are really surprised and impressed.

Great filofaxing ideas to copy
When filofaxing, the selection of motifs, materials and colors is a matter of taste. You could choose any color scheme or design your planner to be very colorful and atmospheric. An interesting idea would be to choose a specific theme – depending on the season, for example. In autumn, for example, you could decorate the sides with colorful leaves, acorns, pine cones and other autumn motifs, in winter – paint snowflakes, pine branches, Christmas balls, and in spring opt for flowers and butterflies. In summer, the seashells, wave motifs and parasols would bring you a holiday mood. It is nice to both paint and use glue because they create an original 3D effect. The great stickers can also be used to hide mistakes. Another creative idea would be to decorate the planner with your favorite quotes, inspirational thoughts and aphorisms that would motivate you to work every day. You shouldn’t forget that you could not only note the important dates and occasions, but also your own thoughts in the time planner – it also serves as a kind of diary.
