Learn how to draw simple banners for your bullet journal in this step-by-step photo tutorial. Use them for dates, collection and tracker headers, or just as decoration.
Ok guys, I’m going to warn you before I get too deep here. I am not an artist. Bullet journaling is about the extent of my drawing capabilities. I’ve done a few mandalas here and there, but I’m by no means a soon-to-be world famous artist. I like to doodle and find it quite relaxing, so my bujo is filled with all kinds of little doodle banners and decorated block font.
The banners I’m going to show you how to draw are very simple. There are much more complicated and detailed banners on Pinterest that show exact shadows and perfectly curved ribbons. I didn’t take two hours to make all the bends in the ribbon just perfect. If that’s something you want to attempt, please do, upload it on Instagram and then tag me so I can marvel at your drawing skills.
There are a total of six banners for your bullet journal that I’m going to show you in this post. To follow along, start by drawing what you see in red ink in the pictures. Move to the next step and continue to add to your banner.
Tip: Use a ruler. I didn’t because I was being lazy. Oops.
Banner #1: Basic Banner
Banner #2: Wavy Banner
Banner #3 & #4: Small Banners for Dates
Banner #5: Curly Banner
Banner #6: Twisted Banner
I hope to be able to do more of these doodle tutorials in the future for weather doodles, fun animal and flower doodles and more. I also hope to be a little better by then. Until that time though, you can follow me on Pinterest to see all of my posts plus posts and bullet journal ideas from other great bloggers.
Happy Fri-Yay Everyone!
