DIY Poetry Binder Dividers

DIY in this case stands for "Decorate It Yourself" :-) I took binder dividers, paper from Michael's, and poems and made these:





In case you can't read the last poem, here it is.

Very nice, Tabatha. I like the way you are organizing the poems. Is this for a special project?

Thanks, Linda. I use a lot of binders and my kids are getting ready to go back to school, so we have a lot of binder dividers in the house. I think I got the idea to decorate them when I was talking with Laura Purdie Salas. It just seemed like something worth trying.

Lovely choices!

Lovely binders! So much thought and care in creating this, how absolutely beautiful Will think about doing something similar for my own binders.

Nice! I'm many years behind on scrapbooking photos. I don't think I'll manage any scrapbooked poems, either, but I love that you have done these.

I do like these. They make me cast about for a reason to do the same ... they would make a lovely project for when the muse is on holiday.

These are wonderful, Tabatha--I love the trees paper! When I've had kids combine poems and scrapbooking paper at young authors conferences and stuff, they love the results. Just adding that more visual element makes them feel like their work is really art. Worth looking at and reading. Yay!
