Tab Punch Board Recipe Box | Free Printable

Hello everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro here on the blog today showing you a project to organize your recipes made with the new Tab Punch Board, and sharing a free printable recipe card for you.

Tab Punch Board recipe box by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

My husband is Italian and in his family food is really important. It is more than a meal, it is a tradition. My mother in law and my husband’s grandmother are amazing cooks, they know how to do everything. A few years ago I decided I wanted to learn a few of their recipes. This little Recipe Box is helping me get organized and not lose any of those precious recipes.

I made the tabs with papers from the lovely Snow & Cocoa collection by Crate Paper. To make the tabs simply punch on the corner of your paper, flip it and punch on desired width (I chose “S”), then use the cutting track to cut off the excess paper.

To make the course titles I used my Typecast Typewriter with gold ink and the Typecast Word Strip Stickers.

I assembled my box and included a title made with a Label sticker from the Typecast Collection. Here you can see the tabs and the recipe card. The board was so easy to use! You can use it to create folders and organize your paper scraps too! Maybe that will be my next project!

Make a Card with the Tab Punch Board

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a card using the Tab Punch Board. This is such a fun punch board! Not only can I make custom file folders to feed my organization obsession, but I thought I could make a darling file folder shaped card!

tab-punch-board-card-5

 

I started by creating a standard card base from double-sided patterned paper. Having bright and fun patterns on both sides of the Oh Happy Life Around Town paper would create a darling file folder card! I cut the paper to 5.5” x 8.5.”

tab-punch-board-card-6

Following the easy instructions included with the Tab Punch Board, I punched my paper twice and trimmed away one strip of paper. It’s really that easy! Once the tab was punched, I scored the patterned paper with my Trim and Score Board to create the fold. (Scored at 4.25” on the 8.5” side.)

tab-punch-board-card-4

I decorated the front with fussy-cut flowers from the Good Morning paper from Oh Happy Life. Fussy-cutting is when objects are cut out with scissors. The gorgeous flowers on the patterned paper were perfect for this technique and created wonderful custom accents for my card! Some of the flowers were along the edge of the patterned paper, leaving a straight edge, instead of a full image. Those worked out to create a unique card front because I could place the flowers down the left side. The front was finished with a small strip of heart patterned paper, a sentiment sticker, and a few rhinestones for shine.

tab-punch-board-card-3

Check out how cute this tab is! It was the perfect place to add another sentiment sticker, and allow the inside pattern to shine through as well!

tab-punch-board-card-2

On the inside of the file folder card, I added more Oh Happy Life patterned paper, a sentiment cut from a journaling card, and a few more flowers. The yellow flower sits on the score of the card, so to allow the file folder card to still open and close, I simply placed the flower in the Trim and Score Board and scored it down the middle.

Scrapbook Page with the Tab Punch Board

Hey there We R Memory Keeper friends, Becki here, to share a layout that I created with the Tab Punch Board. You guys, this punch board is my new favorite tool! The layout I created to share with you today documents my word for 2017 and a few of the goals I’ve set surrounding my word.

Tab Punch Board Layout by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

I started by cutting several 4×6 cards. Then I added tabs to the top of each card with the punch board.

Tab Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers

After I had my tabbed 4×6 cards created, I was ready to put them onto my layout. I used the Trim and Score Board to measure ½” lines on white cardstock.

tab-punch-board-layout-by-becki-adams-2

I layered four tabbed cards on the top portion of the layout and layered 4 tabbed cards on the bottom portion of my layout. I adhered my photo in the middle of the layered tabbed cards. The brightly colored tabbed cards make the perfect layers to draw the reader’s eye to the photo.

 

The title of the layout is my word “habit.” I added the title above the typed journaling above the photo.

tab-punch-board-layout-by-becki-adams-8

I used foam adhesive to give the tabs a little bit of dimension and texture. I wanted the tabs to come off the page a little bit. I also added a few stickers to the tabs to fit the theme of the layout.

tab-punch-board-layout-by-becki-adams-5

tab-punch-board-layout-by-becki-adams-6

The finishing touch on the layout is a few fussy cut flowers that I tucked around the tabs and the photo. I can’t wait to add file tabs to many many many upcoming projects. I LOVE this little tool. I’ll see you again soon.

Tab Punch Board Planner Pages

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here once again with my planner, and this time I’m sharing how I used the new Tab Punch Board to make my own, custom dividers and a washi tape holder:

wrmk-tab-punch-board-planner-pages-tessa-buys-1

I pulled out several sheets of my favorite patterns from the Urban Chic collection. Next, I used the Tab Punch Board to create all the dividers I needed for the various sections of my planner.

wrmk-tab-punch-board-planner-pages-tessa-buys-2

These tabs are the “small” size, which is perfect for my personal size planner! I used my Typeset typewriter and Typeset washi tape stickers to customize a label for each tab.

wrmk-tab-punch-board-planner-pages-tessa-buys-3

I also created a label for my washi tape card.

wrmk-tab-punch-board-planner-pages-tessa-buys-4

I like to tuck cards like this in the planner pockets for adding washi to my pages on the go. To make it even more functional, I used the Tab Punch Board to create a tabbed card. Now it’s easier to pull the washi tape card from the pockets, and it’s cuter, too!

 

wrmk-tab-punch-board-planner-pages-tessa-buys-5

wrmk-tab-punch-board-planner-pages-tessa-buys-6

While the Tab Punch Board was super easy to use by following the instructions that come with the tool, I had to make a slight alteration to those instructions in order to make tab pages exactly proportioned to my personal size planner. Find my video tutorial here, and downloadable instructions on my personal blog here.

wrmk-tab-punch-board-planner-pages-tessa-buys-7

I can’t wait to make more tabbed projects! I’m envisioning tabbed dividers for all of my planners, tabbed page markers, tabbed sticky note holders…my to-make list of tabbed planner supplies and accessories is growing. I’d better get to it! Happy planning!

Hi everyone, my name is Soraya Maes, I’m a 36 year old mom and wife living in the French Riviera, Southern France. I started scrapbooking in 2005 when I discovered a great community of ladies who were sharing their creations and techniques through blogs and videos… this is how I’ve been hooked ! But scrapbooking has always been a part of me since I started documenting my everyday life and special moments in notebooks when I was 11. This is probably why I love journaling so much !
