I was recently creating a binder to organize all kinds of projects, ideas and responsibilities, but had no dividers. Plus, I didn't really want to spend money on them, and I've never really loved the plastic slide in tabs either. So I figured I'd just make some instead! A whole set comes together in just minutes.
Start by running a strip of washi tape down the side of one piece of 8.5 x 11 cardstock like this.
Punch holes (if you have a 3-hole punch it will be super easy. If you just have a one-hole like me, line up a piece of notebook paper so you know where each hole should go)
To make the tabs, cut cardstock to 1.5 by 2 inches and fold in half. Glue to the right edges of the dividers, moving each next one down a little.
**If you want to be able to change what's written on the tab, or just to add more color, cover the tab with a piece of washi tape, then write on it with permanent marker** Then you can remove the tape and relabel later. Otherwise, just write directly on the tab.
Fill up your notebook, and you're all set!
Now, go make some cute dividers, organizer your binder, and conquer the world!
