Bullet Journal Ideas - 6 Ways To Use Kraft Paper In Your Bullet Journal
Kraft paper is great for creating a vintage feel in your journal because its pale brown, unbleached look makes the pages look like they've come from a time far back in history. As well as standard-variety brown kraft paper, you can now buy brown kraft paper in many different forms, including kraft wrapping paper and kraft paper stickers. Some travellers’ notebook covers are made of kraft paper too.
Kraft paper tape is another kraft product that you can use in your journal to add a vintage style to its pages.
Kraft paper is similar to kraft decorative tape. It’s usually used for printing onto, but you can use it in many other ways. Here are some ideas:
1. Notes and Lists
Cut kraft paper up to use as notepaper. Use it in your everyday life for writing reminders and lists, and paste these into your journal.
2. Wrinkle Effects
To make kraft paper look like it’s had an interesting history, scrunch up a piece into a ball, then smooth it out with your hand. The creases will give the paper a historical look.
3. DIY Postage Stamps
You can use kraft paper to DIY decorative vintage postage stamps for your bullet journal.
4. Kraft Paper Stickers
You can tear kraft paper stickers by hand and use them to create a natural, organic, vintage collage feel. You can add a wax seal to enhance the retro effect.
5. Vintage Effects with Stamps
Combine kraft paper with stamps to bring natural colour and textures into your journal and to give it a vintage feel.
6. Travellers’ Notebooks with White Paint
Traveller's Company offer a kraft paper traveller's notebook. It’s made of high-quality Kraft paper which holds colour well. Because the pages are natural brown colour, white paint shows very well on them.
