DIY Binder Dividers

If you have been to any store that has school supplies, you might have noticed that everything out there is full of colors and patterns. This DIY is simple and quick if you don’t want to buy dividers and can easily customize your own.


  • Card Stock
  • Washi Tape
  • Scissors
  • 3 Hole Punch
  • Binder
  • Marker


Go ahead and punch holes in your card stock. You can also use scrapbook paper if you want to be even more colorful.


Take your Washi Tape and depending on how many tabs you want, cut to desired size. Since these will be five tab dividers, the tape will be cut to two inches per design.


Cut one piece of tape and put it on the first divider. The second piece of tape will go on the backside of the divider.


Continue this until all of your tape has been cut and applied to the dividers.


Use a permanent marker to write your subjects.


The good thing about using Washi tape for dividers is that it removes from the card stock pretty easily so if you want to change colors or subjects you can. You can also use the tape to decorate your binder so everything coordinates. Have fun and be creative!
