I saw the idea for tabbed General Conference journals in several different places online. I liked the idea and wanted to make them with our young women and for our family, but was disappointed not to find any printable versions of the apostle tabs that I'd seen. So I made them myself and thought I'd share them here for all of you! My favorite part of these tabs is that I made them so they are perfect sized to be cut out with a 1.25-inch square punch! Easy peasy!
LDS Apostle Tabs for General Conference Journals
Print tabs onto white cardstock.
Punch tabs out with a 1.25-inch square punch ( or the with scissors).
Laminate, if desired.
I started off just using regular Scotch tape as shown in the picture, but ended up preferring the invisible gift wrap tape instead.
Attaching the tabs:
Use a piece of clear tape across the entire tab and attach it to the notebook as shown--with only the name sticking over the edge of the paper.
Leave a page or two between each tab (you may want to count the number of pages you're working with, so you know how many) and stagger the placement of the tab, so it is just below the one before it. Five tabs fit perfectly down the side of the 5x7-inch notebooks that we used.
I recommend placing the tabs in some kind of order (either seniority or alphabetical). Here is seniority order: Monson, Eyring, Uchtdorf, Packer, Perry, Nelson, Oaks, Ballard, Scott, Hales, Holland, Bednar, Cook, Christofferson, Andersen
A few more notes:
For our family we used 5x7-inch notebooks, which came from the dollar bin at Michael's. For the young women, we used some extra personal progress journals that we had in our closet. They were almost identically sized, which made it easier to use the same size of everything.
We used an assortment of scrapbook paper, glue sticks, and mod podge to decorate the covers.
