2016 Printable Planner–Monthly Divider Tabs

Hello shabbilicious friends,

I had hoped to pop in yesterday to share another printable with you for the 2016 Planner, but my computer is being most uncooperative at the moment. It seems that our humid summer weather is playing havoc with all its internal components.

Sheesh…salty sea air and humidity are a bad combination for anything metal!!


I made a fabric cover for my planner using the Tilda Happiness is Homemade fabrics that I adore. Most of it was made from scraps and offcuts from other projects.

If you want to know how I made the cover, I have a tutorial HERE.

I made dividers to separate each month in my planner using these printable tabs.

You can download the monthly divider tabs HERE.

I printed the tabs sheet, cut out each tab and folded them in half to form a double sided tab.

Next I attached them to the top of a sheet of 200gram paper, with one centimeter of the tab adhered to the sheet of paper on each side of the tab and the remaining tab sitting above the page.

I staggered the tabs so that I had 3 across the width of the top of my planner and aligned the rest so the colours sat behind each other when viewed from the top of the planner.


For added durability, I also laminated my dividers. Because the tab sits at the top of the page, the laminating sheet didn’t quite reach the bottom of the divider page, but I was okay with that.

When the laminated sheet cooled, I cut out the top of the page around the tab, allowing a small 2mm excess.

I placed my divider tabs at the top of my page to allow the sides to be used for pretty clips and stickers.

If you haven’t downloaded the planner or the calendar yet, you can get all the details and links HERE.

    Kerryanne, do you have a picture of your finished planner? I would love to see how you put yours all together. Thank you for sharing all your ideas.

  7. So pretty! I have a medium/personal size Kikki K planner that I keep in my purse. Are these tabs made for smaller planners? Particularly ones that have the band that goes around it. Or can they be customized to fit a personal size planner?

      Hi Courtney, these dividers were designed to go with my A4 planner, but you could print them off and see if they fit with what you’ve got. They are quite small. 🙂
