Printable Apostle Tabs for General Conference Journals (NOW UPDATED)

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! 
Here are the tabs followed by directions on how to use them! The YW loved them!   Happy Conference weekend! 

LDS Apostle Tabs for General Conference Journals

Preparing the tabs:

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: 


Notebooks:
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.


Decorating:

We used an assortment of scrapbook paper, glue sticks, and mod podge to decorate the covers. 



How to make it into a YW value project (we put this inside the back cover):
Click here for downloadable, printable version (print at 60% to fit inside of 5x7-inch journal)



"Making the Most of General Conference" printable (we put this inside the front cover):
Click here for downloadable version
( I used Kristy Maguire's version)--print at 65% to fit inside of 5x7-inch journal



Happy Conference weekend! 


 




Enjoy!

I posted this on my YW blog, and linked back to this original post. I hope that is okay. You can see it here: http://lds-yw.blogspot.com/2013/04/conference-journals-from-old-personal.html Adorable idea!

Neil L. Andersen needs to be corrected on his tab. My Beehives pointed out his name appears with middle initial A. which is incorrect.

Lara said...

Almost a whole year after publishing it and your Beehives are the first to point out that I made an error. Thank you for letting me know. I've got it fixed and it should be correct from here on out.

I just made 20 of these for my YW. I used the composition books that are on super clearance. They LOVED them!! Thank you so much for the amazing idea!

We just made these for a combined YW activity last night, and it was a huge success! The young women had such a good time creating these - they just loved selecting their scrapbook paper, embellishing them, and laminating the tags and putting them in their journals. Thank you for such a wonderful idea. We anticipate hearing about our young women having a great weekend watching conference and completing their Personal Progress projects. Thank you!

When I click on the download for the printout for making general conference into a value project, it does not open into anything. Nothing downloads or opens so I can save it.

Lara said...

It looks like Sugardoodle's server is down. Hopefully it'll be back up and running soon and you will be able to click on the link again.

Diana said...

I absolutely love this! I am going to do it for our Young Women activity on Tue March 25, 2014. I am wondering if you have a link that will have the current apostles?

Lara said...

Diana, You will find the pictures of the apostles embedded in the blog post as a linked Scribd document. You should be able to download it and print it from there. if you have issues with it (or can't see the link) feel free to send me an email and I will be happy to send it to you as a PDF file. wawadehut@gmail.com

Hi Lara! I love this idea and wanted to get permission to share it? I'm from Stand & Shine Magazine, an eMagazine for LDS YW and we thought this would be a fun idea to include in our premiere (April) issue! I tried to email you but the link wasn't working for some reason. You could reply on here or email me at standandshinemagazine@gmail.com Thanks so much!

Lara said...

Marzipan, I just sent an email, but I would be more than happy for you to share these on your new online magazine. It sounds like it will be a wonderful resource!

Michele said...

Love this idea! Do you have a printable for the cover. General Conference Journal? Where can I find it?

Natalie said...

when i downloaded the file Neil A Andersen was still wrong can you please send me the updated file dancemom2123@gmail.com

Tiffany Daumueller said...

Thanks for making these! This is a wonderful resource.

We made these for a 10 hour project 2 years ago. Every time we get a new Beehive they come to my house to make their own conference journal. The Sunday after conference we have our girls bring their journals. Our lesson for that week is "Which talk or talks were your favorite?" We spend the whole hour talking about conference.
Thank you so much for taking the time to make and share this. IT IS TRULY WONDERFUL!
I would like to know if you could change this to show the new members for the Quorum of the twelve?

Lara said...

It's all updated with the new apostles! :)

I appreciate your willingness to share your amazing talent. I am so excited for our girls to work on this for next weekend's conference.

Scribd doesn't work for me either. I'm hoping to use this for activity on wed. Could I get you to email it to me at saalee9000@yahoo.com ? Thanks so much. My daughter came home with this notebook more than a year ago and loved it and actually used it. Now she's in yw and I got called to activity days!

Thanks for sharing both then and now!
