This template came about because I needed some dividers for my planner that I’m setting up (yay!) and I’m not a big fan of the plastic stick-on tabs… not sure why, they just rub me the wrong way. SO, I decided to try to make myself some out of cardstock, and after much trial and error I thought, what the heck, maybe someone else can also benefit from all the work I put into this. I hope atleast someone, like me, is in need of tabbed dividers for a classic size planner, and that my templates can be some help!
The Open Office file is probably best because you can actually type in your own tab labels, but if you don’t have OO, the pdf file will give you the basic print-and-cut outlines to get ya going.
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Instructions: Print on two separate sheets of thick paper (card stock). Cut along the solid lines, arrange, and hole punch to fit your classic size planner (5.5” x 8.5”).
(Note: the tabs will stick out 3/8” from the other pages in your planner, but the rest of the right edge will be slightly shorter than the other pages. This is normal. It has to be that way to be able to fit 2 tabs on one 8×11” page.)
Caution: I had to change my printer settings to “Borderless” to get these to fit right on the page. I advise running a test page with scratch paper before you try it on your nice cardstock!
Enjoy! Feel free to leave a comment with any questions or concerns.
