How Do You Make Cash Wallet Dividers With Tabs?
You can use this free printable to print out some basic white dividers or get creative and print this pattern out on some scrapbook paper that I already had in my stash.
Printing the pattern out on the back of the patterned paper will save you from seeing the lines on the front.
Adding labels and then laminating will keep them looking fresh longer and protect them from wear and tear.

Load some 8 x 11 patterned paper into your printer (pattern side down)
Cut out templates and trim to custom fit your wallet. Consider trimming a little smaller than you might expect in order to compensate for the lamination.
Add custom labels for each of your cash sections. You can use a label maker, print out the text, and then cut it to fit the tab, or just write the headings.
Laminate to protect your dividers. If you have a laminator, you can simply run these through. If you don’t, you could buy a roll of clear contact paper and laminate them this way.
Trim the excess off taking care to not get too close to the edge. If you do cut too close, the layers will split and peel apart.
