Recently I bought a new printer, and I happily discovered that it can print these cute little stickers! And at 2.4 by 1.7 centimetres, they are the right size to fit in the cells of most month-on-two pages inserts. So you can use them to make your planner a visual record of your days:
I’ve been using the stickers in my photo journal. They fit in both landscape and portrait orientation. These monthly pages are becoming an index of our life as a family:
I think it’s popular for mothers in Japan to make a daily photo record of their babies’ development, which they put in a Hobonichi or similar diary. These stickers make that easy to do, and they don’t add too much bulk. To see an example, go to this page and then click on ‘Daily Baby Picture Album’ at the bottom. The stickers fit exactly in the cells on the monthly pages of the Hobonichi Planner:
How much does it cost?
One packet of Hagaki Photo Stickers costs about ten dollars, which will make 80 stickers. So I think the cost is comparable with some of the stickers I have bought for my planner. These stickers will work on any Canon iP series printer, plus some others. Canon gives free shipping, and a bundling discount if you order multiple products. (This is not a sponsored post, and I did not receive any free product.)
A word of warning: the frames of the stickers cut off the edges of your photos, so you have to make sure your subject is in the middle of the photo. Also, you have to get the alignment right, and I did waste a few sheets trying to get them centred. But once I got that sorted, I was very happy with the results.
