Today I will be showcasing some ways I use theVB page flags. These have been included in a lot of recent VBKits. The shop lists these as: 5 transparent colored page flags attached to a hard plastic tab card. Each color has 30 flags. Size: 1.5 in. x .50 in
For these, you’ll need a good pen/marker that won’t smear. My go to pen for writing on the VB page flags is the Sakura Microperm! These dry quickly and have a variety of sizes (.05, .03, and .01).
The first thing I love doing is pre-planning with them. Color coding is an additional step I take to keep everything in order. I take a page flag of each color and give them a category. With these categories in mind, I write specifics on each flag and place them in my planner. Since it’s pre-planning, when things change all I have to do is lift the page flag up and move it. I like to do this weeks or even months in advance.
Note: The 1.5 inch width is perfect for most standard size planner boxes/columns.

Task cards are another great way to use VB page flags! The idea behind task cards is to add function and interactivity to your planner. The card focuses on a topic/area and each page flag is a task to be completed. My task card is for my on the go planner. My tasks are gas, shopping (groceries), ATM, post office, and event. 5 things that need to get done!
When planning for the week, I place these down first. Then I can write the rest of my plans. When I complete a task during the week, I remove the page flag and place it back on the card.
TIP: The VB transparent cards are a great backing to put the VB page flags on! The VB Transparent Icon Stickers are great for adding a little visual to each task.

The last way I use VB page flags is to add a pop of color for items that need extra attention. You can use an adhesive roller to give them some extra stick or just pull them off when the task/event is completed/done (kinda like the task card). These have worked really well in theB6 VB Sampler InsertI’ve been trying out.
