May Bullet Journal Spread Ideas

Stunning butterfly cut-out spread idea!

by alionsworld on Instagram

Wow, this butterfly bullet journal idea for May by alionsworld is amazing!

This is deceptively simple to create, though very fiddly!

Simply cut out a standard dutch door by cutting away two opposite pages in the middle of a two page spread, then draw on your butterfly outline and cut away!

I suggest coloring the butterfly first it’s less fiddly that way.
