Everyone’s crazy about bullet journals, but what the heck are they? Simply put, it’s diary, planner, and sketchbook combined into ONE book! I’ve been using the bullet journal system for two years now, and I’m blessed to have a more organized life.
Today, I’m gonna share with you how I make my own bullet journal!
How I make my own bullet journal?
If you don’t know, I LOVE bookbinding. It’s very therapeutic for me, and I enjoy taking time to intricately bind stacks of paper into one text block. I learned how to do it from one of my favourite YouTubers, Sea Lemon. Check out her tutorial on how to make a Moleskine style notebook!
When I first started bookbinding, I had trouble finding the supplies needed. But thankfully, I got my supplies at Weststar Art Shop, in Taman Melawati, as well as Spotlight Stores, in Ampang Point.
As you can see in the photo, I have papers, needles, threads, knives, an awl, a corner punch, elastic bands, a PVA glue, and various fabrics for the book cover. I really took this activity seriously. I even considered selling some of the handmade notebooks on Etsy. Unfortunately, I realized that I just don’t have the time.
In the end, this is what it turned out – my very own text blocks!
Normally, I would create my own cover using one of the fabric cloths I bought at Spotlight. But for my bullet journal, I decided to buy some sort of magnetic-close cover. Thus, I bought mine at Typo because it was on sale. That way, I can easily switch out the used text block with a brand new one each year.
(P.S: Ignore my dirty laptop screen. Haha!)
And that’s it for this part! Maybe soon I’ll write about my weekly layout spread and how I use it to organize my daily life, and the stationaries I use in my journal. ‘Til next time!
