How to Make an Attention Grabbing Fancy Header
- Make a banner around the header!
- Doodle around the header to make it stand out!
- BOLD FONT MAKES IT STAND OUT!
- Use a different font for the header from the rest of your spread!
- Bubble Letters REALLY stand out in most Bullet Journals!
My favourite way to add a special header to any page easily is to make sure the title is a different font than the rest of the page.
If I plan on using cursive through the page (which I like doing for journal entries), then the header will be bold and all caps.
For a page that will be all caps (which I like doing for lists) then the header will be cursive.
Sometimes the best idea is as simple as that!
The other thing that is super simple but makes a big difference is to add a banner. See below on how to make a simple bullet journal banner now!
How To Draw A Simple Banner
Not everyone is a true artist when it comes to their Bullet Journal and it really does not matter! There are tons of beginner friendly examples in this picture alone! A simple ribbon banner will make a huge difference to the look of your page.

Remember: With practice you will only get better at drawing banners!
