Tabs for Erin Condren Planner

I absolutely love my Erin Condren planner but did not like how the tabs were only made of cardstock and they would bend and get all messed up.

Well, I saw this idea over on the little princess blog and wanted to pass this along to y'all.

I decided to take pictures and do a video.  The video is very sub-par, I tried to film it on my iPhone and realized it was next to impossible to do the tabs while holding the phone {hence why there is an awful, ugly upwards shot of me for the entire duration of the video...please ignore the double chin; who doesn't have one when they are looking way down and tucking their chin to their neck?!}.

Pictures/directions first...

{Unprotected Tabs}

{Solution...Avery 1 1/2" Adhesive Tabs}

{Take the tab...}

{...peel it open...}

{...all the way...}
{ it on the tab and pull off the white sticker...}

{...repeat on the other side and press firmly to make sure it is all stuck!}
And now for the kind!

Don't forget to list questions in {this} post for my next vlog...
