- We are working with Basic Shapes today. The box we’re working with fits A2-sized cards perfectly. So, we’re making dividers for it using some rectangles. Grab a square, unlock it, and size it to the size you need for the divider. In our case, we’re using the size 4.25 x 5.5”.
- Grab another square. This is going to be the tab for the divider. You want to make sure that 3 of these will fit across the top of your dividers. The size we liked for ours was 1.38 x 0.907”.
- Duplicate the large rectangle so that you have 3 of them. Duplicate the small rectangle so that you have 3 of them as well.
- For the first divider, place your small rectangle at the top of the large one over to the left. Select both of these layers and choose Align, Left. This will ensure they are perfectly lined up. Select both again and Weld.
- For the second divider, repeat this, only use Align, Center Horizontally instead of Align, Left. Once again weld those two together.
- For the third divider, it’s the same process again, only you will use Align, Right.
- Open a text box and type in the words you want to put and select the font you want to use. You can change the spacing of the letters by using Letter Spacing. Size your labels to fit the tabs. We also made a larger one saying Cards for the whole box in general.
- You will need to create small white rectangles to fit the divider tabs for each of your words (the one saying Cards will be sized to fit the slot on the front of the box). Click both the rectangle and the word that goes on it to select them both. Click Flatten. Repeat for each of the labels.
- Go ahead and click Make It and print your labels. Once printed, place your printed labels onto your cutting mat. Load it into your machine to cut. Choose Heavy Cardstock for your material setting.
- For each of the tabbed dividers, load a piece of cardstock onto your cutting mat, choose for your material setting, load the mat into the machine, and cut.
- Pop the Cards label into the slot on the front of the box. For the other labels, you can glue them to the tabs and you’re all finished!
