Looking at the script editor stack, it is in fact a group of objects. 
You might be able to copy that group and use it in your stack as a 
starter. You'd need to change the scripts and probably the close image 
icon, but the objects are already there.

If you view UI elements in lists, the group "Script Tabs" is in 
revSETemplate on card Main.
