I have already spent more money than I realized on new bibles, covers, and bible friendly markers for me and my girls so buying bible tab labels just seemed a little overload when it was something I could do myself.

Another great thing about these tabs is that they are double sided. You can see the labels on the front and the back. To apply them the easiest way fold the tab in half first then open it back up. This way you will have a crease already on the tab making it easier to fold over once it’s on your bible.

I used packaging tape but you can use whatever tape you prefer. This tape wouldn’t be my go to but it was what I had on hand so that’s what I used. I took a piece of tape then placed my unfolded tab face down on the sticky side.

This part was a little tricky and honestly I probably should have taken more time to get these on there so they were precise. But then again I’m not really a precise, perfect kind of girl so this process fit me perfectly! I eyeballed my tabs and stuck them on their coordinating book of the bible. I placed them on the backside of the page first.
