Mermaid Planner Inserts and Clips – Adult Coloring Planner Insert

So I took two of the year’s biggest trends and smashed them together for one amazing planner insert and clips pack. Are you into Mermaids or adult coloring books? (I’ve never been sure why they have to call them adult coloring books.

It’s always made them sound sketchy to me.) Anyway, today I am sharing with you some mermaid planner inserts and clips. I started to play around with them and change their hair color (to red of course, I had to pay tribute to the best mermaid of all time).

Then I realized that it would be more fun to let people decide what color they wanted their mermaid’s hair and skin color to be. I decided to stick with a simple color palette of a turquoise and purple for the outlines and fins.

But their hair color and skin color can be any color you desire. Want your mermaid to have black hair with purple strips? You’ve got it. Want her to be blonde with a darker complexion? Color till you get it just right.

When I colored mine, I decided I wanted her to look me. I made her skin as pale as I had a colored pencil for (of course even that was still too dark). Next, I added some brown hair. Then I realized if I really wanted to make her look like me I should add a ton of gray strands. Like I said, you can make your mermaid any way you’d like.

In addition to turning these into planner clips, they could also be used as bookmarks. If you have a mermaid-loving child or tween, this will be right up their alley.

So grab your dinglehopper and coloring tools and have some fun!

Directions for the Inserts and Planner Clips (written directions below)

Directions for the Planner Clips

  • Print one front piece and one back piece (has a number 2 at the end) on cardstock for added durability.
  • Print/Cut using the silhouette file or cut with scissors
  • If you’re going to laminate your clips, laminate the planner clips first in two separate pieces.
  • Glue the paper clip to the back of one of the printed paper clip toppers. Make sure to glue the paper clip low enough that it will still work as a paper clip.
  • Use more glue to place the other piece on top of the paper clip/first side. Make sure the image is facing out.
  • This is the perfect glue for making planner clips. It’s strong enough to hold. Hot glue also works well.
  • Allow time to dry before use.

Directions for the Planner Inserts

  • Don’t have a Happy Planner? Click here for more specific directions for bound planners.
  • Print one front piece and one back piece (has a number 2 at the end) on cardstock for added durability.
  • Print/Cut using the silhouette files or cut with scissors.
  • Glue the front and back together using a strong glue or hot glue.
  • If you want to laminate the insert (to use with a dry erase marker), glue first and then laminate.
  • Hole punch in the hole punch area.
  • Allow time to dry before use.

Tips and Tricks for Printing & Cutting

  • Colors may vary. Printers print differently depending on many factors. (The printer I use is a more expensive unit that uses pigment ink).
  • Print on cardstock for added durability. (this is my favorite from Amazon)
  • Simply download the files below, unzip, and print the files you need. Files are in three different sizes so pick the one that works with your planner.
  • This is the perfect glue for making planner clips. It’s strong enough to hold.
  • Make sure you select one front and one back design for the inserts and clips (backs are all labeled with a 2 at the end).
  • If you’d like to print the clips/inserts in another size, adjust the size percentage on your printer options page.
  • The Silhouette file is set for a portrait (what I have). It can easily be used with a Cameo instead, just change the mat settings.

Thank you for the free downloads. My granddaughter is going to love the mermaid printables for her happy planner. Question: Can I use one of the files to print and cut with my cricut? I didn't see a SVG file which is what I think you need for the cricut. Is this correct? Thank you, Lori

Hi Lori! Unfortunately, there is no SVG available, only a Silhouette file. But, I have had lots of readers import the images into Design Space and cut it with no problem! I also hand cut each of my printables first to make sure it's not too difficult so it can always be cut by hand. Thanks for stopping by! Laura
