DIY easy dividers

Hey there! As you all know I’m a big fan of “Filofax” and recently got my own Pocket sized filofax. I’ve been wanting to make my own dividers ever since. A few days ago my 6 holes-puncher arrived with the mail, and I could finnaly get started! Before I tell you  how I made them, here they are! (click for a larger view)

So as you can see the divider tabs are: “Diary, school, € (finances), notes, shop and blog”.

Here’s a list of what you need:

  1. patterned scrapbook paper (not too thin)
  2. scissors
  3. the dividers that came with your filofax when you bought it
  4. a pencil
  5. sticky notes
  6. any type of glue / scrapbooking glue
  7. 1-hole puncher or 6-holes puncher
  8. Black or other color pen

As you can see in the pictures above the first thing I did was trace the original filofax dividers on the desired scrapbook paper sheet. Then you can see the result of that in the right picture. After that I punched the hole and started decorating them. Here you are free to do whatever you wish. Since these are my first dividers I kept it pretty simple. ;) All I did was add some sticky notes with glue and wrote on them. :) Oh, almost forgot. I also made the corners round with my scissors!

Have fun trying this out!
ps: I know the quality of the pictuers isn’t good, but I’m planning to use a (very simple) camera in the future. I don’t have it with me yet, since I’m away from home to study.

  1. I got my Filofax around the same time as you, got my hole punch around the same time, and also made my own dividers. Strange and exciting at the same time! You did an awesome job; hope you enjoy your planner!
