The World’s Cutest Bible Tabs Ever- And They’re Printable!

For the first time, someone besides me has named one of my products. When finishing up these bible tabs, I asked Lydia what I should call them, and she quickly replied “The World’s Cutest Bible Tabs Ever!” So I’d like to present you with… The World’s Cutest Bible Tabs Ever. 😉

I kept seeing all the cute journaling bibles out there looking all adorable and crafty with cute hand-made tabs, so I decided to make some to mark all the books in my bible. It wasn’t the plan to make them downloadable, but I mean, if I’m going to go through all the work anyways, may as well scan them for the rest of you, right? I love how instantly fun they made my bible!

I created a tab for each of the 73 books of the bible, and each one has a symbol for something in that book. I’ve found that it makes finding the readings I’m looking for very easy to find!

For any of my protestant brothers and sisters in Christ, I want to say that all of your books of the Bible are here– just don’t use the ones you don’t need for your bible.

I love how they’re all shaped differently. As far as I know, these are the first novelty bible tabs of their kind, and kids love them! (Not to mention moms) 😉

I feel like it’s hard to capture their cuteness in the photos, but I especially love this little lyre as the symbol for the book of Psalms. 🙂

I also love the little symbols for the 4 Gospels!

How to use the bible tabs:

Print the download. (I printed mine on card stock so they would be sturdy)

Fold the tabs along the line.

Cut along the outside edge of the tab with the paper still folded. They all stay connected along the top so the 2 sides stay together.

Here’s what the Genesis tab looks like cut out. This is when I put it on my Bible page, and figure out exactly where I want it to go, then mark with a little pencil dot. Just like any dividers, each tab should be placed a little lower than the tab in front of it. When you get to the bottom of your Bible, start at the top of the page again.

To attach these to my Bible, I used regular school glue. I squirted a few dots on the inside of the tab and spread it with my finger. This assures that you get glue to all the edges of the tab, and you don’t leave any globs that will dry wrinkly.

Then you stick it to your Bible page on the place where you marked with your pencil. That’s it! Be sure not to glue your pages together. I kept checking by flipping my pages back and forth each time I put a new tab in to make sure nothing was sticking that I didn’t want to stick.

If you think the tabs are too big for your Bible, you can print them smaller by choosing a smaller percentage (such as printing them at 80%. I already had one friend tell me she was going to do this. They were just the right size for my bible.)

Check out how Monica made these her own by shrinking them to fit her bible, and laminating them before putting them in her bible.

  1. These are so cute!! Would you recommend laminating them before sticking them in? How are your holding up? I can’t wait to add these to our Bible!

    • I didn’t laminate mine and they’re holding up just fine. If I were going to laminate them, I would use regular paper, not card stock. In fact, I think real lamination would be too thick as well. If I wanted them laminated, I’d use packing tape rather than real lamination paper. I suppose they could also be printed on photo paper to give them a more shiny/sturdy look.

  2. I am trying to find a Catholic wide margin bible to start my art journaling. Where did you find your bible?

  3. What Bible is that in the pictures? I am just starting out with this and want to make sure I have the correct bible. And I love the tabs!!
    Thanks

  4. They are the cutest Bible tabs ever! Great idea! Love them!

  5. Thank you for these! I love your work! You inspire me!

  6. Adorbs!! Can I ask which Bible that is?

  7. I saw these on your journaling pages, but couldn’t find them in your archives, so I figured I’d have to make my own. You came through again before that happened. Thanks, amiga!

  8. Would you consider making a black-white version available so older children can color their own?

    • I’ve had several requests for this. I’ll see what I can do. 🙂

      • I purchased a set yesterday thinking, for some reason, that there was a black and white option, so if you do this, I’d love to know, too. For now, I’m going to get my kids to deepen the colors using colored pencils. 🙂

  9. Thank you these are just adorable!! Great price for such an awesome product!

  10. These are awesome Lacy.
    I’m still holding out for a REAL Catholic Bible that is more affordable.
    BUT – I love these and will use them in a few of our Bibles.
    Hugs,
    Em

    I wish the were free though. Oh, well.

    • With all due respect, $3 is cheap! Just before seeing this, I bought some from Amazon–not nearly so cute, and for more. It is nice to receive free things, but her time wasn’t free. If you cannot afford the $3, just make your own. Yours will be personal to you–which can be just as sweet. You could use index cards. 🙂

      • Thanks, Heidi. I really work hard to keep my downloads really affordable (I’d say generally about half of what other bloggers charge) so I’m happy to hear it’s appreciated. And a lot of time does go into inventing, creating, formatting, publishing, etc, and even up-keeping a website is not free. <3

        • Thank you for making these available to everyone Lacy, they are adorable! And you should be paid for your time. Time isn’t free and if someone doesn’t want to pay for them, I think you have also freely shared the idea and someone can make their own and someone else shared, personalize them. But these are adorable! Much cuter and heart felt then those that I have purchased in the past.

    • The labourer is worthy of his hire 🙂
      People give stuff away for free sometimes, but we shouldn’t expect them to or complain if they don’t.

  12. okay this is going to be a totally fun project with the kids…awesomeness. Thank you!

    About 30 years ago, as a neophyte, I put lovely tabs on my beautiful St. Joseph version of the bible. My bible has been well worn with underlining and notes, etc. and the tabs have made it very convenient to use. There are two results that I would like to share: The tabs have ripped the pages with me having to either tape them back on-very messy- or they have so shredded the page around them that I just had to gently tear the page-and so losing some of the text. In addition, I have noticed that I am dependent on the tabs to find the books in the bible. I would suggest that these very adorable tabs be used on a children’s bible to help children find and learn the placement of the books of the bible. Then when they are grown enough to appreciate a beautiful adult bible that tabs be left off. In the long run, I wish I had not put them on mine-but now I find it difficult to leave my beloved, well-prayed Bible.

  14. Gayle Blaxton says:

    PS I love your website

  15. What a wonderful idea! I, too, like the idea of having them available to color also. Thanks for all of your posts. I’m not Catholic, but find many that I’m able to use.

    My name is Mona ,and my mom got these tabs for my bible. Thank you so much!I love how they look!I really like them! These tabs make me want to read my bible more!Would you be able to make some tabs that I don’t have in my bible?The tabs that I would like are , Susanna,the first and second book of Esdras, Three young Men,and possibly an Old and a New Testament tab? Also in my bible, I have the book of Jerimiah, as well as a letter of Jerimiah. I Also have a Greek Esther and a regular/Hebrew Esther. My mom said that she can pay for these tabs. Thank you so much!!!Ilove all the things on your website!!

  17. Thanks for linking to how I used your Bible tabs. I really love the way they look…and I’m so happy that I was able to laminate them. This isn’t the first time I’ve made a smaller version of your awesome printables, hello peg saints. =) Great job on the Bible Tabs and $3 is a great price.

  18. Angelique Gutierrez says:

    This is fabulous! I do have a request, not sure if you would be interested. Would it be possible to also have them without color so my children can color it themselves (since they love to color)?

  19. Elizabeth Janiskee says:

    Lacy,
    I love the tabs & appreciate all you’ve shared about bible journaling!! Thank you.

  20. Thank You!

  21. It would be quite helpful to have a list of what each of the cute tabs represent. Many are quite obvious, but some are not for me. I just finished putting these tabs in. It did take a couple of days, but they look wonderful! I love your creativity!

  22. kathjane says:

    I just bought these for my pre-teen Sunday School group. We’re going to make a scrapbook with a summary of each book of the bible, so these are a perfect way to “prettify” their scrapbooks. Thank you!

  23. melissa says:

    I never buy stuff like this and I just ordered them and can’t wait to print them out! Where did you get your rosary, it’s beautiful! I have more rosaries than I need, but am a sucker for cute new ones 🙂

  24. Jennifer Stobbs says:

    Hello – Love these tabs! I purchased them! Is there a black and white version of them? Would love to be bale to color them myself – Since I do not have a color printer….THANKS!!!
