Drawing a bullet journal banner
Starting with simplicity, drawing a banner for your bullet journal does not have to be hard! Now! We have a printable at the end to help you!
So lets get cracking (PS the Printable is at the end!)
Step 1: Draw a simple 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.
Making the bullet journal banner better
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 your bullet journal header and banner 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!
