Picture of Franklin Binder iPad Upgrade!
Like my father before me, I am a devoted Franklin Covey Binder user. We're in the 21st century and paper is going obsolete, so I decided to gut out my paper binding Franklin to house my new iPad.

Using a drill, I drilled out the rivets holding the binding mechanism and grind down the excess metal down as far as possible. 

Step 2:

Using double sided adhesive and some pieces of leather I covered the rivets. Then added Velcro to the inside of the Franklin and the back of my iPad skin case.

From your photos I am guessing the paper size you used in your Franklin Day Planner was 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. It is great that your iPad fits just right. It is also a good way to protect and carry your iPad, as well as a good way to get further use from a nice Franklin binder.
Sweet! You may also want to remove the internal zipper, so it doesn't scratch up your iPad. I would just remove the whole zipper.

I was thinking about gluing a strip of leather creating a flap. Just enough to cover the zipper and the pen. For now the screen protector does the job.
