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.
