Do any of you remember Dymo embossing label makers?? Well, I had one when I was a kid and used to label everything! Tis true my love of stationery used to shine through even at the age of 6!
As some of you may know I recently treated myself to a Finsbury personal size Filofax and in an effort to save money, I decided rather than purchasing new dividers I would use some tabs that I got from a seller on Etsy and label them up into the sections I needed.
Last time I did this, I borrowed my husband’s label printer from his work but I don’t expect him to keep sneaking it home for me every time I want to make some more labels. Then it dawned on me, “hey, what about the Dymo I used to have”. With this thought in mind, and my mum spending a couple of hours searching my old bedroom at her house (love her), I was reunited with my old Dymo including tape still hanging out of it!!
Alas, I have used this to do exactly what I set out to do, label some tabs to act as dividers in my new Finsbury Filofax. I love it as I think it really has a retro feel about it.
My sister recently purchased a Filofax A5 Apex to use as her planner at work (she is a teacher) and she is also going to label up her tabbed dividers that she made using this. You can watch my YouTube video on how to make your own Filofax dividers by clicking here.
What type of label maker do you like to use?
