How To Make Decorative Page Separators

Step 2: Tabs

Picture of Tabs
Using the decorative paper you intend to be the tabs of your separators, cut rectangles  1 1/2" x 2 1/2".  I have used rainbow dotted paper for my tabs.

Fold each rectangle lengthwise in half with the decorative print on the outside.

Using a scrap of card stock, cut out a 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangle for a template.  I have used blue card stock in the photos for my template.

This template rectangle will be folded widthwise in half, opposite of your decorative tabs.  We do this to create a mirror image template for our tab shape.

Cut the desired shape of your tab into the template and unfold to make sure it fits along the folded edge of your decorative tabs.
