DIY: Pocket Dividers

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

File folders


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. 🙂

Hello There ! My name is Tiffany and I am on the journey to find balance in life! Now, I’m not talking about anything kooky or mystical, but real true balance and health in all areas: physical, spiritual, and emotional. I figured I was not the only one looking for these things, and thus this blog was born. I am not an expert in all things healthy nor is my life 100% balanced. However, I have been on this journey for a quite a few years and have learned some things along the way. One of those things is that the start of a healthy and balanced life is a relationship with Jesus Christ, my Savior, my Friend, my Strong Tower, and my Balance in those completely unbalanced moments. If you’d like more information on knowing Jesus Christ, please click here Welcome Friend, I look forward to our journey together.
