Durable page separators for binders can be expensive.
This tutorial gives directions to create your own durable and decorative page separators with inexpensive supplies that you may already have on hand.
Creating your own separators not only saves money, but allows you to customize and colorize your binder!
These are both simple and fun to make!
Materials you will need:
- White (or colored) heavy card stock paper
- Decorative (or plain) card stock paper for tabs
- Double-sided adhesive
- 3-hole punch
- Rotary paper cutter (optional)
Step 1: Binding Holes
Start by creating 1" strips of card stock to use to reinforce the binding holes. This can be done with a rotary cutter or scissors. I have used blue paper for my reinforcing strips.
Using double-sided adhesive (my preference is Mono brand roller adhesive), glue the strip along the side that will be punched for binder holes.
Use 3-hole punch to punch each separator. The tutorial photos will be for a set of 4 separators, but you can make fewer or more as you need.
