It’s been a dull, grey winter so this month’s Papergang subscription box provided a much-needed pop of colour. Plus the utility of its contents ensured it had substance as well as style. As long as bullet journalling remains a thing, stationery addicts will always appreciate items to build their BuJo kit.
This handy pouch smells just like water wings. It took me right back to childhood swimming lessons. Inside, three pencils in green, yellow and pink.
I like to carry my BuJo around so this is perfect for keeping all my journal paraphernalia together.
This arrived just in time – sadly I’ve lost my beautiful brass one from the Dark Botany box designed by Susan Castillo a few months back.
The ruler is an essential tool for bullet journallers who want to make the most of the dot grid system. Join the dots to box off key information or underline your page headings for some school swot chic.
Stickers are the perfect way to pull out key dates, highlight what’s gone well and mark special occasions. Even better, they mean you can jazz up your journal – a great alternative if doodling is not your thing.
The two sticker sheets are my favourite thing in this Papergang box. The seasonal labels, candles and be airplanes are best for advance planning – birthdays, holidays, those things you want to look forward to. And for weekly/daily/monthly logs the ticks, crosses and smilies are great.
Little Miss Scatterbrain features on the front of this card. But keeping a bullet journal means no excuses for forgetting stuff anymore. The card is blank inside. It’s ideal to have around for unbirthdays and other times when you want to send a card just because.
Dot grid journal
The exposed and tightly stacked signatures make this notebook a thing of beauty. And handily it fits inside the plastic wallet. I love it when a plan comes together! The paper is thick enough to take ink and also glue if you want to stick stuff in.
The cardboard cover is begging for a bit of extra personalisation, I think. I might do some doodling on the back or accent the title.
Overall, another great box from Papergang. And do make sure you check out the accompanying leaflet if you’re new to bullet journalling.
