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!
