We know how tricky it can be to find more fonts to add to your journal to make cute headers or titles, especially those that are fun and easy to try! So We’ve taken the tricky out for you to help you make some cuteness for your journal! The practice sheets are at the end, so bear with! Lets get started!

One of the first things to keep in mind is that in fact, when using hand written bullet journal fonts, they are actually called “scripts” or “hand lettering”

Hand lettering bullet journal font #2 Simple and effective

#3 Bold

In this font we have use a ruler and a circle maker to create the aspects of the font.

Step 1: Draw 3 lines, this will guide where the center of the letters will sit

Step 2 ,3 and 4: Draw the outlines of your letters using your ruler and circle stencil

Step 5: Fill in the lines with pen

Step 6: Color in the lines

You can easily take this one to the next level by not coloring in the lines, or adding additional flourishes

We also added flowers and ombre to make it really pretty.

You could also use one single letter as a stand out for a date or month

#4: Ribbon Font

This one is a little more tricky than the others and could take some practice! Thats ok!

Step 1: start with 2 lines on the top and 2 lines on the bottom

Step 2: Draw your letter using calligraphy; as with our previous lettering “how to” on calligraphy, create a “shadow effect on the down strokes.

Step 3: Now create another parallel line on the upstrokes.

Step 4: Color the upstrokes in a dark color and use a corresponding light color for the down strokes, this will give you the impression of a winding ribbon
