DIY Index Dividers with Washi Tape

{Cute index dividers for your binders to keep you organized and happy}
DIY Index Dividers | Crafting in the Rain

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.

How to make your own index dividers | Crafting in the Rain

You'll need:
White cardstock 
Washi Tape
Hole punch

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.
