Turn a planner that’s never been used into a sketchbook you will use!
I had a planner but as i’ve Said I didn’t use it. But I hated to get rid of a good book/ planner cover so I turned my planner into a sketch book.
I used the scraps of paper I already had as the paper for this sketch book.

Time wise i’m Not sure how long this will take, let’s just say it’s depends on how much time you intend to spend on it.
And the accessories are optional, and you can buy some just as easily as you can make some.
