Going back to school is always a hectic period and there are usually lots of things happening. With that in mind, I thought I’ll add some fun with these easy and cute stationery doodles which you can use for your September Bullet Journal setup or just in your study notes. Visual note-taking is a very strong method of learning, after all.
First of all, I recorded a “Doodle With Me” video with 14 different school-themed doodles which you should TOTALLY watch, and you can find it at the end of the post.
In addition to those, you can also find here 13 simple stationery doodles. Each tutorial is broken down into simple steps and is very easy to follow. Moreover, all the images are Pinnable, so you can just save them in your favorite Pinterest board and easily get back to them at any time.
If you are at school and need some help with your school pages setup, I do have quite a few free school printables in the Resources Vault, so make sure to check them out.

With all that out of the way, let’s doodle!
My Favorite Doodling Supplies
Let me start by saying that even though I do all my tutorials on my iPad with the Procreate app, I firmly believe there is still nothing better than doodling with pen and paper.
You don’t really need any special supplies for that, just a pencil and a piece of paper should be ok. In fact, I always recommend you to start with a pencil sketch to avoid any mistakes and such.
If you want to add some more feel to your doodles though, you might want to consider enlarging your stationery collection. Below are some of my favorite supplies.
Unipin Fineliners. They’re definitely a must-have to create those rich black lines and add more emphasis to your doodles. Any fineliner pens would work actually, these are just the ones I’m loving at the moment. A great thing about fineliners is that they come in sets with different sizes, which will help you create more elaborate doodles.
Zebra Mildliner Highlighters. These are absolutely my favorite way to add color to my doodles. I love their color palette and I think they work so well with doodle art.
Crayola Super Tips are another way to add color to your doodles. They are affordable and the sets come with an insane amount of different colors!
Notebook. You can doodle on any kind of paper honestly, but I prefer to have a separate journal for my doodles. This helps me to check my progress, plus I basically create a notebook full of doodle ideas for the next time I need to decorate my Bullet Journal pages.
I’d recommend getting any kind of budget notebooks for that, check out some of the options below.

You’re always of course very welcome to come and share your creations in our Facebook group.
Below are 11 step by step doodle tutorials, but there are more doodle ideas in my “Doodle With Me” video at the end of the post, so be sure to check that out.
Honestly, I don’t think I ever used crayons in my life, maybe because I was always more of a colored pencil kind of girl, or maybe because crayons were impossible to find in Soviet Russia. It’s kind of a mystery actually.
However, crayons are super fun to draw and are very cute, so this will be our first doodle.
My absolute favorite piece of stationery EVEEEEER!! Sometimes it feels like they’re the only thing I use for my bujo. Seriously guys, I have no idea why they aren’t sponsoring me yet =(
These are also super popular in the school community and for a reason – they are high quality, have a great color scheme, look amazing on flat lay pictures and OMG it’s just that they’re so adorable! Aren’t they?
I like my doodle to be very rounded, but feel free to make the corners straighter – whatever fits your doodling style better.
Good old pencil – a must-have for any school pencil case and a very cute and easy doodle to draw.
If you’re more into mechanical pencils, I have one in my “Doodle With Me” video, so don’t worry it’s all covered.
There are so many amazing ways to use washi tape in your Bullet Journal! I’ve been sooooooooo obsessed over them lately. I just had to include washi tape in this post.
Are you a washi person? Let me know in the comments!
Does this look familiar to you? If you follow me on Instagram you probably recognized that this doodle is mostly based on my Bullet Journal cover.
To add a little extra something to your planner doodle, try using a grey marker and add a shadow. This trick always adds a spark to a doodle and is very easy to add to such a simply shaped one as a planner.
Highlighters are an absolute must-have for school, so I had to add this doodle to this list. We already had a Zebra Mildliner Highlighter above, but I really wanted to add a more classic one.
Finally, here is a simple doodle of a pen. Here is a little trick for you, that I used here – if you round all the corners and make elements a bit bigger than they should be, it will create a much cuter doodle.
Even though personally I don’t use staplers that much, it still seems like a must-have gadget on your desk. It can be super cute and it’s very simple to doodle, just check out the tutorial below.
I love this doodle, it’s so darn cute! Plus you can absolutely use any crazy colors you feel like since ink comes in a huge variety of them. How about some rainbow-colored ink?
This is a super easy doodle but can be extremely adorable. Play around with rounding your corners and buttons even more for a cuter lo0ok.
One more planner doodle, this time it’s more of a travel journal kind of planner. As you can see even from the tutorial, you can make it more rounded or more square…y? (is that even a word?), depending on your style.
I’ve always been a fan of paper calendars, even now I have one on my table at work. So when we talk stationery and back to school a paper rip off calendar is definitely there is my list of must-haves.
Last but not least is the backpack doodle. This one is a bit more elaborate but still pretty easy to draw.
Doodle With Me Video
Finally, here is my “Doodle With Me” video. Hope by seeing me doodling you’ll realize how easy it is to replicate those and be ready in no time to start decorating your school notes and study notebooks.
