September Bujo Setup - Picnic Theme (Free Printable!)
HAY, how art you? September is the start of fall season, but staying in a tropical country means an outdoor picnic is possible all year round! I came across an easy paper weaving tutorial recently, and incorporated the technique in a little basket for this month’s cover page. To match this bujo theme, this month’s free printable is titled Picnic Day. You can find the download link at the end of this article. Without further ado, let me show you my September bujo setup!

September Bujo Setup Cover Page
The cover page features a paper basket along with the monthly header. To create the basket, I cut a trapezium shape with flaps from kraft card paper. For the woven pattern, I cut slits along the centre of the shape, and inserted light kraft paper strips across them in an alternating pattern. Twine was glued on as the basket’s handle. To add more texture, I put in a little dried flower bouquet and pasted vintage stickers inside.
This page is kept simple with a lined section for setting the month’s intentions accompanied by collage decorations all around. I used a mixture of cutouts from my Picnic Day printable, stickers and stamps to assemble the collages.
September Bujo Setup Weekly Spread 1
For the first September weekly spread, I tore and pasted pieces of kraft paper for the daily sections. They add a nice rustic texture to the spread! To fill up the remaining spaces, I added stickers, cutouts and stamps to decorate.
September Bujo Setup Weekly Spread 2
For the second weekly spread, each page was divided into four sections. This layout is fuss-free and easy to create! The headers were printed, cut and pasted. I have been doing that for a couple of months now, and I love how I can customise the font and colour palette according to the theme.
