How to Use Bullet Journal Stencils
Are you a current planner, or are you in need of some help organizing your days? If you’ve never heard of bullet journaling, it is a method of planning that has helped thousands of people organize their lives.

Bullet journaling has also been covered by this New Yorker article, which details the stories of bullet journalers who had their lives changed by the practice. Whether you already use a planner or would like to, our stencils can help you make beautiful layouts wherever you go.

These stencils are designed to fit notebooks around the A5 size, such as many standard Moleskines. They’ll even fit in the back pocket of your journal or planner.
Ways to use bullet journal stencils
1). Calendars & Habit Trackers
Use the calendar area to create a yearly calendar or habit tracker. Simply trace the design onto your page and fill in the blanks with colors according to the key you can make using the various shapes. You can mark down birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, you name it.
2). Film and Book Reviews
Name and rate the films, TV, or books have watched/read and plan to watch or read. We got creative and used the star bullets to create a rating system. You can even leave some space for comments.
3). To-Do Lists
The most obvious way to use these stencils is to create checklists. Make a quick and easy to-do list in seconds by using the checklist area of the stencil.
Here’s the pens we used with the stencils:
