Not sure which Journal to get?

How to draw 11 of the EASIEST to banners ever (and free banner Printable)

In our last post we covered headers. It can be so challenging sometimes to come up with some fun ideas for your bullet journal spreads. This time I am going to show you 1 simple banner design that you can jazz up easily. So easily. In fact all you need is a pen and your journal, or a napkin, paper, whatever. So lets get started! If you have tried it, it would be great to share with us over at @theartofbujo and #taobhowto

So lets get cracking (PS the Printable is at the end!)

Step 1: Draw a rectangle.

Step 2: Draw a line downwards from rectangle not to far from the edge. Follow up with a perpendicular line going further out than the rectangle.

Step 3: Draw a parallel line to the bottom extending the same distance as the bottom line. Connect the rectangle edge to the bottom corner. Pop a small dot between those two parallel lines, this will help you draw even ribbons.

Step 4: Draw in the ends of the ribbon, and shade the ribbon connection. Boom. Done.

Lets Jazz the Banner up! Easy

Up and down: Pop the ribbon ends on the top and bottom

Curve it: Instead of going straight, add a small curve!

Double up: Create two rectangles the same as above, connect them in the middle, and add one ribbon at the top and one at the bottom.

Try a little dog ear!

Try wrapping your ribbon around a box

Pop it on a wavy flag!

Kick it up ANOTHER notch!

Yes you heard right! Using the same system, keep the ribbons smaller and add extra curves to it.

Double double! Create 2 rectangles and 4 ribbon ends

Doodles: start in pencil and try adding floral doodles around the boarder.

Shade it and color it in! FUN!
