Supplies used include our Bible tabs printable,  tape or Xyron sticker maker, and a tab punch.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • 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.

Beyond Bible Tabs

You can use these tabs in other places besides your Bible. Try using them in a planner, cookbook, notebook, and on files. There are so many uses for bible tabs! How do you use bible tabs? I’d love to know in the comments below!
