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.

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!

    Hi Crystal,

    Can you help me understand what you mean by “just slip the tabs in” If I just slip them in to the page protector they just slide down, I’m confused, haha!

    Thanks!
