I made these quick and cheap pocket dividers for my household notebook. A lot of you may have some of these lying around. I got mine out of a free pile at work. However if you have to buy them, it is much cheaper to buy regular file folders than pocket dividers.
You will need:
3 ring hole punch
1. Get all your materials together.
2. Cut approximately a 1/2 inch off the top of the folder. (You will need to cut it to the size of your 3 ring binder so that it fits and can be flipped with ease in the binder.)
3. Cut the front flap of the folder to the pocket size of your choosing.
As you can see in the picture below, I did 5 different pocket sizes. The black folder I did not cut at all. I did tape the bottom so that I could slide papers in and out.
4. Tape the bottom of the folder and the side of the “pocket” with clear packing tape or clear scotch tape.
Viola! Your pocket dividers are ready to be labeled and put into your household binder. I will be posting about my household binder tomorrow.
