Get organized with these DIY Binder Tabs! Upcycle paint chips (paint sample cards) into fun and colorful binder or planner tabs. Such a simple and fun craft!
I love paint chips. Yes, I know this is weird, since in my home decor, I am actually quite color averse. I used to have an unnatural fear of color, but I’ve been working on it. Now I’m just color averse. Yet, I love paint samples. I love looking at all of the colors. I even have one of those little paint sample fans at my desk – Not that I would even use 99.999% of those colors in ANYTHING! But I have it to flip though whenever I like.
So today I present to you, my lovely reader, my first ever paint chip craft. Enjoy!

Tutorial: DIY Binder Tabs from Paint Chips
Start with your paint samples. Using existing binder tabs or your best eye, make a tab template.
Then cut out your tabs.
I prefer to cut my tabs in half instead of folding. The thick paper of the paint chip card doesn’t fold very cleanly.
Next, attach double sided tape to both pieces of paint chip.
Finally, position the paint chip onto white cardstock paper at even intervals.
Too easy right? I even made a couple of tabs for my planner, because this gal is old school and still uses a paper planner. No judgments!
