Hey everyone! It’s a true fact that everybody loves birthdays. And what better way to commemorate them than by using the bullet journal?! Not everyone loves using drawings in their bullet journals, but I find that using doodles can be useful, and really fun! I celebrated my birthday this week, so I thought it would be a perfect time to share some birthday doodles I came up with. Enjoy!
Pssst! Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post for ways to use your doodles and a bonus bullet journal tip!
And here’s the finished product…
There are a lot of ways these doodles could be used, inside your bullet journal and out. Here are a few:
- decorate your daily spread for your birthday
- use the little presents in the future log or the monthly log as a symbol for friends’ birthdays
- make a birthday card
- decorate an envelope
- designate a small notebook for writing down birthdays and use some doodles to spruce up the cover
This spread is one of a few reference pages I’ve made in the back of my bullet journal—pages in the back where I compile things like doodles and fonts that I can reference and use in my bullet journal later on. Some other examples of reference pages I’ve made are fonts, headers, and various types of doodles. If you have ideas for doodles you can add but don’t currently have a place to jot them down, you may want to think about some reference pages. I’ve been thinking of maybe doing a post on them…if you’re interested, please let me know in the comments! 🙂
How are you going to use these doodles in YOUR bullet journal? Are there any others that you’ve come up with? Do you even use doodles in your bullet journal? Let me know in the comments below!
