FREE Printable Bible Tabs

I use tabs in all of my Bibles. I have a collection of several for more in depth studies and various translations and every time I add a new one to my collection, the first thing I do is add tabs to each book of the Bible. It makes things a bit easier for me to navigate as I’m still learning where each book is located inside the Bible. And as a Type A personality, it simply makes me happy to have the tabs, ha!

I’ve shared a version of these before (in 2015!) and since then, I’ve been informed that the printable I offered didn’t match the one in my Bible. It seems I uploaded an older version and forgot to update the font before loading them into that post, so I decided to offer the correct version and a new script version as well.

At the beginning of this year, I committed to read through the entire Bible in a year and bough a Beautiful Word Bible for exactly just this purpose. I wanted to steer clear of commentary or study Bibles and just be in God’s Word. I’ve marked down the dates I’ve read each passage along the way and it’s my intention to leave this Bible as a keepsake for my daughter, Evelyn. I’ve been meaning to add tabs to this special keepsake, but haven’t gotten around to it until now. For this particular set of tabs, I used a script font, so I thought I’d share this version with you as well.

I simply printed the file onto scrapbook paper.

Trimmed the tabs out, folded each one in half, and glued them individually to my Bible pages. This was a labor of love and took up quite a chunk of time, which I didn’t mind. But if you’re more pressed for time, I’ve used a Xyron machine in the past and it makes the process go much faster by creating a sticker out of each tab. You can check out my full tutorial from the last post I did on these here.

I love to Bible journal and enjoy glorifying God through my creative mediums of watercolors, stickers, and doodling. For me, it satisfies my soul to open my Bible and be able to physically see where I was in God’s word, what I learned, and how I executed it into a creation that glorifies our Savior. Naturally, I love for my Bible tabs to reflect that fun part of my personality so I printed my tabs on scrapbook paper that I trimmed down to fit inside my printer. If you prefer them to be on plain white paper, you can simply print them right off these files, but if you love color and patterns, have fun playing with paper and print as many of these off as you so desire!

    Love your bible tabs. I do say that the paper ones don’t last long when you are using your Bible everyday.

    • Holly Sosa June 6, 2017 at 11:05 AM

      This is true. They’re easy to laminate using packaging tape or there are even laminating machines available to buy. That would help to ensure they last much longer. 🙂

    I LOVE your tabs. Thank you sooo much. The lettering on the all caps version is low on the tab so it gets hidden once it’s applied to the Bible pages. All three versions are gorgeous tough! Thank you so much.

      I’m so glad you like the tabs! I didn’t have the same problem when I printed these out for testing. Perhaps try printing them via Staples or another printing store?

    Hello! I love these bible tabs so much! Thank you for the link. I was wanting to make a set for a Catholic bible. Do you have a template that has the other books of the Catholic bible on it? Thanks!

  • Lydie January 10, 2018 at 1:06 PM

    I just realized that I have the same bible as you! I love it so much; it has helped me delve deeper into the Word!

    Wished I seen this before I spent 25$ on tabs from etsy 🙁

  • Renee January 11, 2019 at 12:13 AM

    Is this for the Catholic Bible?

    • Holly Sosa January 14, 2019 at 12:54 PM

      This particular Bible I’m using is NIV. 🙂
