How to Make Bible Tabs Out of Scrap Paper
In this tutorial you’ll learn how to make Bible tabs out of scrap paper or by using our free printable download.
- Step 1 – Print out the tabs using a color printer and cardstock paper.
- Step 2 – Cut out rectangular tabs.
- Step 3 – Fold the tabs in half.
- Step 4 – Place the tabs in the tab punch with the fold slightly under the edge of the tab (see video).
- Step 5 – Press down on the tab punch.
- Step 6 – Using a sticker maker run the tab through the machine with the printed side up. If you’re not using a sticker maker, you can use tape or glue.
- Step 7 – This step is optional and not included in the video. But we highly recommended it. Place washi tape on the edge of the page to reinforce the page.
- Step 8 – Place one edge of the tab on the Bible page and fold the other side over.
If you decide to use scrap cardstock paper for your bible tabs, you can write words on them using a sharpie or gel pens. You can also use labels, stickers or stamps as well. Let your imagination run wild. You may also want to laminate your tabs to help them stand the test of time.
