Free Printable Cutting Machine Planner Divider / Die-Cut

Here’s a new calendar divider for January (or any other time of the year if you print the blank undated version): it’s a cute Cutting Machine planner divider! 

I know many of you probably added a cutting machine to your Christmas wishlist so I thought it was a cute idea. Or you may already own a cutting machine and love using it to cut stickers and easily make all types of papercrafts, so why not feature your favorite crafting companion in your planner!

(This post contains affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosures here.)

I’ve now updated all my previous planner dividers to include a blank undated version to every single one of them. You’re welcome to use one of the previous dividers instead if you’re not totally in love with this one.

When printing a blank divider, all you’ll have left to do will be to write down the current month’s calendar or important notes. Alternatively, you can use my printable mini calendars to date any previous dividers (they’re sized to fit).


If you don’t have a cutting machine yet but would like to, you can get different types on Amazon: Silhouette Cameo, Silhouette Portrait and Cricut Explore Air 2 or Cricut Maker. I personally own a Silhouette Cameo (+ my previous Silhouette Portrait) but Cricut machines are becoming increasingly popular!

I’ve created this calendar divider/die-cut in two versions: a blank undated one that you can use anytime you’d like (to keep notes, decorate, add any month’s calendar, etc) and a dated version that will help you keep a whole view of the month.

Here are a few examples of other planner dividers that could be great to use this january:

Festive penguin planner divider (the year isn’t featured on the blank version)

 
Polar Bear Calendar Divider:

On top of being cute, this calendar divider is also functional. It quickly gives you a whole month’s view, can help you find your page and is even more helpful to have around if you use an undated planner. Nobody likes to get dates mixed up.

It’s also perfect if you use a bullet journal or travel notebook!

Depending on where you punch your holes and how you place your divider in your planner you can get a different look: visible or not when your planner is closed. Plus, you punch holes yourself so this divider can fit in any type of planner!

Pin this image for later:

 Double-sided divider:

The PDF file also includes a mirrored verso of the divider.

That means that you can actually have the mirrored divider on the back of your calendar. Glue both sides together before laminating it and punching holes in it!
You don’t necessarily have to use it if you don’t want your divider to be cute on both sides.

Plus, if you laminate your divider, you can use the verso to write important dates!

You can laminate your calendar and use a Staedtler non permanent Lumocolor pen to write important dates, notes or to-dos on the back of my calendar. What I like about this pen is that it doesn’t smear as a whiteboard pen would. Plus, you can simply erase by swiping it with a wet napkin.

Alternatively, you can also use a Staedtler permanent Lumocolor pen, but you’ll need alcohol to rub off your writings. The pens I have are in size F.

Supplies and instructions:

This “DIY” to create your monthly calendar divider is pretty self-explanatory but basically, you’ll need:

  • thick paper like cardstock paper, or else your divider will probably get flimsy
  • printable file
  • a printer – check out my best tip to print for free or super cheap
  • scissors (or cutting machine) – the shapes are really simple so using scissors is probably just as quick!
  • hole puncher
  • Optional: a laminator (if you want to keep them clean longer, this will also make them a little stronger)
How to save money and earn cashback on your online purchases ?
If you’re planning on buying some of the items needed for this project online here’s a great tip to earn cash back, find coupons and save money easily.

Before buying anything online, I always check out Rakuten (previously named “Ebates”), either with the browser extension or on Ebates.com. I find the store name (type it), click the current deal for that store and complete my purchase.

When completing a purchase through Ebates you earn cashback that you can have mailed to you or sent via Paypal.

If you have never used Ebates/Rakuten you’re missing out.

Click here to sign up for Ebates, and RIGHT NOW when you sign up, you will receive a $10 cash welcome bonus when you spend $25.00!

Since you were already going to complete your purchase online, why not get some cashback on things you planned to purchase!

Just reading the supplies list should make you guess what you have to do now:

  1. Download the PDF file, resize if needed
  2. Print it on cardstock paper
  3. Cut each shape with your scissors
  4. Optional: if you want to add the background to the calendar, glue recto & verso together
  5. Laminate them if you want to
  6. Enjoy all month long!

If you prefer to use your Silhouette machine, the steps are just slightly different :

  1. Download the pdf file
  2. Open the pdf in Silhouette software directly if you have the Designer Edition. If you have the basic software, fear not and turn the PDF into a jpeg first, using this website. You can resize in Silhouette if you want.
  3. Trace the design
  4. Use the Print and cut function through your Silhouette software.
  5. Optional: if you want to add the background to the calendar, glue recto & verso together
  6. Laminate them if you want to
  7. Enjoy!
