30+ Must-See May Cover Page Ideas!

Updated: Apr 12

There is lots to love about May - summer is officially underway, VACATIONS, and for the Bullet Journal community - you can add creative quotes to your monthly covers :D


"May you always see all the beautiful little things" or "May all your dreams come true" come to mind.


There are plenty of themes you can choose from -


Let's kick this off with the most obvious theme of all for the hot month of May - Summer!


1. Summer Theme

From cool, refreshing fruits to sultry summer nights, there's a lot of inspiration to seek from summer.

The butterflies come out to play in the warm sunshine, and bullet journalists seem to love this theme for their May cover pages. Like, a LOT of them!
