DIY Recipe Box II

Index tabs

This is the second part of this tutorial.

  • Labels
  • Plastic film
  • Tabs (download image above. To download just right click image and save as image)
  • Index card
  • Cardboard cards
  • A pair of scissors
  • Print the tabs on label paper. Cut them out and adjust their size to the index card tabs. Before sticking the tabs, stick a  piece of white label to prevent seeing through the tabs' original color.
  • Cover each tab with plastic film. This will protect them from dust and grease.
  • Put some cardboard cards in between the index cards. I folded my cards to fit the size of the box.
Special touch: As this recipe box is for my mother-in-law I have added a magnifying glass to the box in case she has trouble seeing the letters.
