Since it’s the last month of the year… I’m really trying to step up my cover page game! These December monthly cover ideas will help you finish off the year with some super festive holiday vibes! I found a wide variety of covers with everything from a classic Christmas theme to something more simple and minimal
Before we jump into the spreads, here are a few of the bullet journal supplies I use. I keep things pretty simple when it comes to the actual “tools” I use…
I use the Leuchtturm 1917 currently in black but I like to switch up the color every time I run out of room. There are cheaper options out there but I just haven’t tried them… if you have let me know what you think of them!
For the markers, I use these Zebra Pen Mildliners or these Tombow Dual Brush Markers for my colors. For the black colored writing, I’ll just use a ballpoint pen or some Pigma Micron pens. From time to time I’ll also pick up a sticker pack from Etsy to add some cute doodles without having to spend a lot of time decorating my spread. If you’ve found other stuff that works for you, drop me a comment and let me know what you use!
Here are the monthly covers I found:
