9 WAYS TO DECORATE YOUR BUJO/PLANNER | THE OUTSIDE
I am sure you have seen plenty of pictures from the inside of a bullet journal. But the outside? It seems to be not as important for many people even though you can make beautiful things out of your bujo!
Here are nine ways for you to make the most out of your bullet journal from the outside.
Yours already looks awesome from the outside and want to upgrade the inside? Here is my current bullet journal layout to show you how I organize my days and how I decorate.
This is probably my favorite tip of all time. Take a pen with golden or silver color and place dots all over the notebook. It looks awesome, and is really simple to do yourself.
Use a pen like the one I mentioned above and write your favorite quote or word down. Here are some of my favorite quotes for motivation and inspiration. Using your own handwriting would look cute and if it doesn’t, print out a paper with a font you like. Now you are able to copy that font to guarantee a great look.
You have chosen a favorite quote but doesn’t want to write it yourself? Check tip seven out!
3| WASHI TAPE
Washi-tape is not only awesome for decorating the inside but also for the outside.
To know what looks good you have try out different tapes, and places for it to go. You have found a combination that works for you? Send me a picture of it on Instagram, Twitter and co.! I would love to see what you came up with!
I was pretty proud to come up with this idea because it is pretty neat.
Honestly, this is pretty self-explaining. Take some ties and make a ribbon. Now you just have to glue it on your bullet journal.

5| CLEAR FOIL
I absolutely hate to have scratches on my notebooks. Clear foil protects and looks good (most of the time). You could even buy colored foil when owning a white notebook.

Pictures keep memories for us and carry emotions. On front of your planner or bullet journal will it always remind you of that. To protect the picture and the notebook I would always put the clear foil over it.Pictures keep memories for us and carry emotions. Click To Tweet
Or you make a collage which looks absolutely stunning!
The picture above shows the notebook I used when I went abroad for a year.
Pretty old fashion, I know. Nowadays you can buy cute stickers or even print your own.
You have your favorite quote but don’t want to write it down yourself? Then it is the best option for you to order a sticker with it and put it on your notebook.
8| WRAPPING PAPER
Pretty easy and cheap method to make your bullet journal look more pretty. Choose some good-looking wrapping paper and just wrap it like a gift. Put some glue or adhesive tape on the inside to secure the paper.
Tip: You can always renew the wrapping paper because it is so easy to take off. This is the perfect way to decorate your BuJo if you are a person who loves change.
9| SPRAY PAINT
(Don’t try it this way. It will not work out good at all!)
Using spray paint is my favorite way to decorate notebooks! Hold the spray far away from it and press. Little golden dots (or whatever color you are choosing) are placed all over the bullet journal which almost makes it sparkle! It looks stunning in real life; the picture can not quite show the exact look.
