INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE TABS…
You can download them HERE.
The TABS are finally ready for the half-sized binder! They are formatted to be printed on a 5×7 piece of paper. I used Epson’s Ultra Premium Presentation Paper for my tabs. You could also just use a sheet of cardstock & trim it down to 5×7. The first set of tabs is for the main binder & includes: Time Management, Relationships, Thoughts, & Energy. The second set of tabs is for the “Put God First” binder & includes: Prayer Journal, Scripture Study, Impressions, Daily Blessings, Favorite Quotes, and Talks & Notes.
Step 1: Print on a thick 5×7 piece of paper & make sure it’s formatted to “borderless”.
Step 2: Use a paper trimmer & cut on the dashed lines. Your tabs should look like this…
Step 3: Use a “scoring” blade or tool to lightly crease the tabs & then fold in half.
Step 4: Once the tab is folded in half, wrap a piece of clear tape around both sides of the white part to hold it together. You can then use a corner punch to round the corners if you like….or just leave it as a square. I like it either way!
Step 5: Use a scrap piece of paper apx. 5.75′ wide, line up your tabs, & make 5 marks.
Step 6: Use your guide to help you line up your tabs & then tape them down.
Step 7: Slide them into your sheet protectors & your done!
INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE HOLE PUNCH GUIDE…
This is a handy little guide I created for the half-sized binders. I bought a regular sized hole-punch for less than $8 at WalMart & then just adjusted it to fit the holes of a mini binder. Whenever I go to hole-punch my papers, I place this guide on top & center the lines with the middle hole (as you can see in the picture below). It makes it super quick & easy & keeps all of my papers lined up!
