FREE Printable Binder Covers to Organize Your Life

This set of 3 {free} Printable Binder Covers for you today (well, six technically) – A recipe binder, finance binder and home planner binder.

Colorful Printable Binder Covers

And since back to school season is right around the corner, I’ve also included three blank versions so you can edit the blank ones in PicMonkey to personalize with a name or subject if it’s being used for school!

I printed these on 8.5 x 11″ glossy photo paper and slipped them into a cheap binder with pockets. I’m currently using one of these as my recipe binder and love how bright and colorful it is!

Binder Covers with the Word Recipes on it

So first, here are the pre-filled binder covers. Each version includes a front cover, spine, and back cover.

🖨️ How to Print Binder Covers:

Print on 8.5 x 11″ paper using a borderless setting on your printer if available.

I like printing these on glossy photo paper that you can get on Amazon or any office supply store. If your printer isn’t able to print borderless, there’ll be a white margin once printed – you can trim these off if you’d like.

Then just slide them into the clear pocket on your binder, and a cheap little binder quickly becomes cute and personalized!

Recipe Binder

Fill up your recipe binder with all of your favorite dishes. I linked to our version which gives you several covers and separator tabs. I love it when I’m online, and I find a great recipe, and I can quickly print it off and put it in my binder. Then once the recipe is in the binder, I will make it and then decide if it’s going to stay in the binder or get tossed. 

Seven Inserts for Recipe Categories

I only keep the recipes that I love because I want to get as much use out of the binder as possible. You can organize yours any way that you like. As I fill up one, I will start another one. When it comes to organizing, I prefer to use some tabs and mark different categories. Here are some categories that I use:

  • Appetizers
  • Sides
  • Main Dishes
  • Desserts
  • Homemade Cleaners

In addition to keeping recipes, I also put conversion charts in there so I can quickly look and see that three teaspoons are the same as one tablespoon. Or whatever I’m trying to look up. Think of adding in things that pertain to your lifestyle and diet. If you are egg-free, dairy-free or gluten-free, make a list of the most common substitutions. It’s so lovely to have them handy whenever you need them. 

Meal Planning Worksheets

Whenever I plan a meal plan, I also add it to the recipe binder too. That way, I have everything organized by what meal it is and what I need to buy versus what I already have. It’s a quick reference for me to look at before heading to the store or when I start cooking. 

The one big TIP I have is to use the sleeve protectors.

I am a complete mess in the kitchen and these help quite a bit saving my precious recipes from my splatters! Here are the ones I use: 

I also use these binder dividers that I can write on the tab what section they belong to and they have the nifty pockets that I use for a quick shove when I don’t have the time to get the sleeves out and organize. 

Finance Binder

Finances, finances, finances! Trust me when I tell you that having a binder for finances is a huge lifesaver. Everything we do from going to work to buying laundry detergent all revolves around our finances. It is the most essential binder to keep!

Free Financial Binder

Keep all your bank statements, coupons, and other financial information that you need to refer to close in the binder. Then, you can quickly grab it anytime you need. I also recommend keeping your budget in there so you can easily update as the month goes on. If you don’t have a budget yet, now is a great time to get started. 

Having all your finances in order and organized in one easy place will save you stress later. Trust me! You won’t have to rummage through drawers or cabinets looking for something because it will all be right there. 

To get started on a Finance Binder, here are a few of our favorites to add to the Binder Cover Sheet, Monthly Goals and Yearly Goals sheets as well.

Home Planner Binder

You won’t believe all the stuff I keep in my home planner binder. Once I started using my binder and realized the value that it has, I knew I had to share it with you. Here are some ideas that you can consider adding to your home planner binder:

Free Home Organization Binder

Ideas for Organization Worksheets

  • Goals – Whether it’s weekly, monthly, or yearly goals, it’s a great idea to have some ideas planned out. Granted, not everything will always go as planned, but it’s nice to see those goals in black and white. It makes them much more attainable, and they feel tangible that way. 
  • Plans – I put a calendar in my binder that has various plans on it. Ball games, music programs, social events, and everything else we are involved in are added to the calendar. 
  • Schedules – Using a schedule for deep cleaning my house is something I enjoy doing. That way, I can refer to the schedule to know when I need to do maintenance or cleaning projects. Changing filters on your furnace or cleaning under the beds is easy to remember when you have it written down. Anything you keep on a schedule should be added to your home planner binder. 
  • Projects – Are you considering any big projects like adding a new deck, replacing the carpet, or painting the house? Any type of project you have can be added to your planner. It gives you an idea of what it’s going to take to make it happen. 
  • Miscellaneous – Anything else that you aren’t sure where to put, you could add to this binder. It can be your go-to place to keep all sorts of things and ideas. 

If you haven’t seen our Free Organizational Binder that has several sheets that fit into this, make sure to check it out! You can simply print the ones that work for you! 

Medical Binder

This is a new one for us but such a crucial one to have in our home – Medical Binder. This one has several printable sheets for medical appointments, blood pressure trackers, migraine trackers, insurance information and more. You can print them off separately for each member of your family. 

Free Medical Worksheets

Holiday Binder 

This is another new one for us but was a lifesaver this year! No more disorganization for the final 60 days of the year! I had everything tracked and ready to go in my little Holiday Binder. Make your holidays a bit less stressful! 

This is one that I am going to keep all filled out and look over next fall and see how I want to re-adjust it as I go along since this was the first year to use it. 

📝 Why Have Binders?

There are many reasons to keep binders. First of all, it feels so good to know exactly where everything is. You know those days when you have so many things going on that you become overwhelmed and don’t know where to start? Using binders will help you plan things, so that doesn’t happen as frequently.  

Additionally, if you want to keep your house organized, having a game plan is the first step. Making a plan will save you lots of stress and energy later. 

📷 Photo Editing Programs

Of course, I mentioned PicMonkey because it’s so user-friendly! You can add customizations, and it’s so simple and looks gorgeous every time. This is, by far, my top choice when it comes to editing these planners. 

Another great option is Canva. You can quickly add wording and even clipart within minutes. It’s a simple system that offers a lot of stylish and elegant choices. Plus, it’s just fun to play around with! You will find that you can create all sorts of things there. 

Ultimately, you can use any program that you like and are accustomed to. These are just a couple of ideas to get you started. 

DIY Binder Covers & Spine Labels

Like what you see? Share it!

Whether you’re getting ready for back to school, organizing your office, or just brightening up things around the house, personalized binder covers are an easy way to add some color and fun to your life! And you can make them quickly in any version of Silhouette Studio and there is NO CUTTING MACHINE REQUIRED! Let me show you how…

What You’ll Need

Binder Cover

This tutorial is written for use with a printer that is limited to a width of 8. 5 inches. If you have a 12×12 printer like this one, you can fit both the notebook cover and the spine label on one sheet of cardstock or adjust the size of the design to create larger binder covers. I recommend Red River Paper’s 60 lb Polar Matte cardstock.

Open a new document in Silhouette Studio with dimensions to match your printer, portrait-orientation. Check the box for Show Print Border.

My Print Page Setup is 8.5 in x 11 in. Borderless, so the print border is the same size as the page. If your printer doesn’t allow for borderless printing, you may see a small margin on all sides and your binder cover will be white in these areas. Consider it a design element!

Draw a rectangle that is 8.5 inches wide and 11 inches tall. Center it to the page.

Go to your Silhouette Library and locate the pattern you want to use. Click once on the thumbnail to fill your rectangle with the pattern. (If the rectangle does not fill with pattern, make sure it is selected before going to the Library tab.)

Adjust the pattern if desired. (Check out this tutorial for more information on how to adjust patterns.)

Draw a rounded rectangle 5.5 inches wide by 3 inches tall. Fill with white.

Change the line color of the rounded rectangle to a coordinating color. Change the line weight to 5.00 pt. (Hint: use the eyedropper tool to choose a coordinating color from the pattern.)

Add text or other clipart. Fill the text with color and resize as desired. Group the text/clip art with the rounded rectangle.

Position the rounded rectangle as desired. (Mine is about 2 inches from the top and centered to the page.) Group all elements of the design together.

Make a copy of the design and move it to the grey holding area.

Double-check to be sure the design is still centered to the page and print onto white cardstock.

Spine Label

Measure the area of the notebook spine where the label goes.  The 1-inch binder I’m using has a label area of approximately 1.25 inches.

Very important!!! Deduct at least 0.1 inches from this measurement for your spine label to slip in easily. I used a measurement of 1.1 inches for mine and it was still a pretty tight fit.

Using the copy you created earlier, ungroup the design. Resize the width of the patterned rectangle to the measurement you calculated above. (The height will remain 11 inches.)

Rotate the patterned rectangle 90 degrees counter-clockwise.

Resize the rounded rectangle and text to fit within the patterned rectangle. I also changed the line weight of my rounded rectangle to 3.00 pts and adjusted the corners slightly.

Align all elements and group.

Rotate the label by 90 degrees clockwise and align with the top of the page.

Print on white cardstock and trim with paper trimmer, scissors, or X-acto knife. If you are making multiple binder covers, place several spine labels on one page before printing.

Slip the cover and spine label into the plastic pockets of your binder and you are done!

A Note about Patterns

This tutorial uses patterns from the Silhouette Design Store because they are readily available and the simplest to use with the free version of Silhouette Studio. If you have Designer Edition or above, you can add custom patterns to your Silhouette Library. Here’s a fun notebook I made using patterns purchased from Sparkleberry Ink:

Binder Covers and Spines Tutorial • The Learning Effect

Create beautiful binder covers and spines with this tutorial! All you need is PowerPoint software. Screenshots of the steps are included so you can easily follow along step-by-step. Let’s create!

I’ve had many readers ask how I create my binder covers and spines. I’m going to give you the steps so you can DIY!

The screenshots in this tutorial show creation in PowerPoint (Office 365 version 16.33) on a Mac. If you have an older version of PowerPoint, your settings may be in different places under different names.

Binder Covers

Step 1

Open PowerPoint and delete the text boxes so you have a blank slide.

Step 2

Select the Design tab, then Slide Size, then Page Setup. A box will pop up and you’ll need to change the following settings:

  • Width: 8.5 in
  • Height: 11 in

You can select any size you want for your page here. So if you have a different binder size, this is where you can customize it to fit your needs.

Step 3

Staying under the Design tab, select Format Background. A sidebar will open on the right. Select the Picture or Texture Fill circle. Click Insert and find the background image you want to use. If the background looks funny, try checking the tile picture as texture box. If that doesn’t fix it, you may need to choose another image that is large enough to fill the area.

The digital paper I used is from I Teach. What’s Your Super Power? Her store is amazing and her digital paper is by far my favorite. The set this digital paper is from is the Back to School Set.

If you don’t have digital paper you could also play around with the other options – solid fill, gradient fill, and pattern fill.

Step 4

Select the Insert tab. Click on Shapes and select the rectangle shape. Draw the box on your slide to whatever size you want. My box is 3.9″ high and 8.5″ wide. This can be adjusted to get exact numbers under the Shape Format tab on the right.

It doesn’t need to be perfectly centered. We’ll fix that in a minute.

Step 5

Click on your box to select it, then click the Shape Format tab. Change the shape fill to white, the shape outline to no outline, and add a shadow under Shape Effects if you wish. Change the text fill to black.

To center the box on the slide, click on Align (still under the Shape Format tab). Select Align Center.

Step 6

Right-click on the box and select Edit Text. Type in whatever you want on the page. You can change the color, size, font, etc. I used the font KAVeryBerrySmoothie from Kaitlynn Albani. The size is 115.

Step 7

If you want your text outlined in white, select the Shape Format tab and then click text outline and select white. You can also add a shadow under text effects to be able to see the outline.

Step 8

When printing on a Mac, click on the Scale to Fit Paper checkbox.

When printing on a PC, click on the Full Page Slides drop-down and make sure Scale to Fit Page and High Quality are selected. If these two are not selected before printing, your page will have a large white border around it and any shadowing will not print out.

If you’re looking to create several binder covers, you can simply create one, then right-click on the slide preview at the left and select Duplicate Slide. Now all you have to do is change the background design (step 3) and the text.

Binder Spines

For the spines, it’s pretty much the same directions, but I’ll show you the differences. You can even create them in the same file.

Step 1

Add a new blank slide.

Step 2

Go to the Insert tab and draw a rectangle shape. When selected, click the Shape Format tab and make sure the dimensions (on the right side) are 11″ high and 0.9″ wide. (0.9″ wide fits a 1-inch binder spine perfectly. Whatever size you’re using, choose 0.1″ less than the size for the width.)

Step 3

Select Align, then Align Middle.

Step 4

Still in the Shape Format tab, click Shape Fill and select Picture. I chose to keep the same image as my binder cover for the fill. You could also just use a solid color if you want. If you’re using a light color, add an outline to your shape. I usually pick a light gray or black.

Right-click the shape and select Format Picture. Click the paint can in the sidebar that opens on the right and select Fill.

Click tile picture as texture if it looks smushed. You can change the Transparency in the sidebar to 50% (or any other percentage) so the text is easier to read once you type on top of it. Completely up to you!

Step 5

Right-click on the box again, and select Edit Text. Type in whatever you want on it. Again, you can change the font, size, colors, shadows, outlines, etc. the way I showed you above.

You will need to rotate the text so it goes vertically. Under the Home tab select text direction, then rotate all text 270 degrees.

My Supplies

My favorite binders are Avery Durable 1″ Binders with Slant Rings.

I always print my spines on cardstock so they’re easier to insert into the side of the binder.

Please note that you can change the color of the striped background.

A monogram binder cover can turn a simple binder into a pretty personalized creation. It is so easy to make and we offer a wide selection of both designs and colors.

There is no reason to purchase or create your own binder cover. Instead, use one of our binder cover templates and personalize it to suit your needs. You can personalize each binder cover template with your initials and even customize some of them to change the colors if you prefer another color.

How do you make a binder cover?

It really depends on the binder that you are using. If your binder has a transparent pocket on the front then just insert the binder cover into the pocket. If it doesn’t have one then use paper glue to adhere to the binder cover to the binder. To protect the cover, you can laminate it before you use it. You can also cover the entire binder with a transparent plastic binder cover that can be purchased at most office supply stores.

What size are the binder covers on this site?

Each binder cover is 8.5 X 11 ” (US letter size) which is the perfect size to cover most binders. If your binder is smaller then just trim any of the edges with scissors or a guillotine paper cutter.

Can you add text to the covers?

Yes. If you want to include the contents of the binder in addition to your monogram then you can just click on the “A” to add text. Once you have typed the title that you want to include then move it around until you are happy with the location. Drag it to the right to make the font larger. You can also create a coordinating spine insert.

Can the covers be used for notebooks?

Yes. You can use the templates as notebook covers as well. Adhere the cover to your notebook’s cover to create your own personalized notebook cover. It will turn a simple notebook into a pretty custom book. Notebooks are often smaller than binders so you might need to either decrease the size of the cover to fit your notebook (using your printer’s settings) or trim the binder cover to fit your notebook.

A binder is a great solution when you want to have the ability to insert and remove documents. If you prefer to use a notebook then these covers can still be useful. Since you will not have the transparent pocket that most binders have you will probably be gluing the cover. You might want to test the glue by gluing a piece of paper to another page to ensure that you don’t get the wavy effect that some kinds of glue cause (particularly liquid glue). I find that a glue stick always gets the job done and leaves a smooth finish.

How to make a binder cover with a 4 initial monogram?

Select the template that you want to use from the selection above. Then select the vine monogram font (the first option). Click on add text to add another initial. Move the initials around and make them bigger or smaller until you are satisfied with the layout.

How to change icons on an android phone

NOTE: these lines were added much later than this entry.I just put a video at the bottom of the page – how to make your android beautiful and convenient. I think everyone will find in it – something for themselves.

We most often see the grid of application icons on our screens of smartphones or tablets Android 6.0, 5.1, 4.4 2 and so on.

Unfortunately, the “factory” icons (by default) are not the prettiest ones, but they can be easily changed.

The main advantage of the android system is its flexibility and, in our case, personalization.

You can change icons in three ways: with a launcher and without a launcher – with the appropriate package and programs.

At the same time, the packages are compatible with such launchers as launcherami, ADW Launcher, Apex Launcher, Nova Launcher or Holo Launcher.

Much also depends on the individual set – I checked it on Nova Launcher and it works great.


Now you do not need to install third-party applications. Everything is done through a built-in function. There are hundreds of different packs to choose from, including 3D icons – read more here.

NOTE: you can also change the size of the icons on the android desktop, the color of the text, and even change the name.

Now let’s take a closer look at some of the procedures for changing the appearance of an android to make it more beautiful.

How to change the application icon for android

The easiest way to change icons for android is to download the launcher application, as in the Windows theme.

Nova Launcher is popular today. You can download it for free on the google play market, so I don’t give links (just enter the name in the search bar).

After installing install go to settings and install the appropriate icon pack.

Of course there are many other free apps out there and maybe better ones. They will quickly change all application icons.

How to change application icons to android without launcher

If you do not want to install the launcher, you can change the icons without the launcher. It goes without saying that you need to have others prepared for this.

Where can I get them? They can be downloaded for free on the play market. Here are the most popular packs, although there are many others: MIUI v5 Icon Pack, Holographic Icons, Simplex, DCikon, Square Icon Pack, Rounded Icon Pack, Min Icon Set, and so on.

The good news is that you don’t need root access or other changes to the operating system.

Basically, without fussing with root or other tools, you can do this using the launcher, although a lot depends on the application containing these icons.

If you search on Google Play, you can find icons that mimic the presence of the operating system LG, Samsung, etc.

How to change android icons in places

When changing icons in android, in places you need to drag one to the other, just not completely (so that there is a small indent), otherwise the system will create a folder and place both icons in it.

If you use a luncher, then by long pressing on the selected icon, in most cases they change places on their own.

Programs for changing icons for android

If you are disappointed with the modification described above and the icons of your favorite applications look the same, there is a solution in the form of special programs – Icon Theme, which will make your desktop unique.

Some of them work from android 4.0 version, require root access and Xposed library.

After launch, you may be greeted by an ascetic interface. The list contains all the icon packs that are installed in the memory of your device.

You can select any of them and then accept the changes. After that, you need to restart your smartphone and voila.

NOTE: When changing icons, two issues may pop up. The first is tampering with system files.

Even a simple change of icons is associated with the risk of damage to the system and the need to restore all factory settings again.

Second – there is no possibility to change the icons of individual applications, although such a function may be in some lunchers.

I also recommend watching the video below. This is really a bomb, only it will tear you apart not physically but from surprise. Good luck.

“Folder for marriage certificate”

Hello, our dear readers! Today I am with you, Tatyana Kashcheeva .
And I will tell you how I make folders for marriage certificates.

Daddies or covers for marriage certificate I conditionally divide

into two categories according to their functionality.

The second category of certificate covers / folders is distinguished by its delicate beauty, made exclusively for use in the wedding ceremony. And then kept in a box with the rest of the wedding accessories. Sometimes you can get it out and remember those wonderful moments when two hearts beat in unison …

This is the kind of folder we are going to make today!

We need the following materials and tools:

We cut out two rectangles measuring 19 * 26.5 cm from the binding cardboard.Because I have brown cardboard, and daddy will be light, then I covered the cardboard with white acrylic paint.

From thick paper I cut out a rectangle 11 * 26.5 cm in size.I measure 5 cm from each edge, I curl the average centimeter every 2 mm. After scoring, pencil marks must be erased with an eraser.

I glue the cardboard blanks to the paper element, aligning along the extreme creases.

When the glue dries, I glue the synthetic winterizer.The synthetic winterizer and the fabric are glue on a glue stick.

Now you need to glue the cardboard blank with a cloth. I described this process in great detail in the MK on creating a cover for a birth certificate, so I will not dwell on this point here. I will only add that gluing satin is much more difficult than cotton or linen, therefore, if you have little experience in scraping, it is better to use natural fabrics.

Cut a strip of approximately 8 * 28 cm from the main fabric.We turn it on both sides and glue it so that 25-25.5 cm remains in height. For this I use an adhesive spider web. We glue a strip of fabric into the center of our workpiece, centering it relative to the edges.

We glue and sew on satin ribbons that will serve as strings. The length of the ribbons is 40 cm. At the same stage, we place on the cover the decor that will be sewn, eyelets or brads, if you use them.

To the second we glue the fasteners for the certificate.I made the fasteners from a 1 cm wide satin ribbon.To do this, turn the sheet over to us with the wrong side. From each corner we set aside segments of 4.5 cm in both directions. We cut the tape into strips of 13 cm and glue.

Paste the endpapers into the folder. I complemented the endpaper with a photo backing with an elegant chipboard and added droplets with liquid pearls.

Our daddy is ready!
