I am proud to introduce another dingbat font designed for diecutters, at least that’s how it started. Silhouette Studio, Microsoft Word and even Photoshop are among the programs that can wrap text on a path but can’t wrap objects … or so it seems. Simply put your objects in a font – problem solved. So here’s my collection of little shapes that repeat or combine to make fun borders and, for the most part, lend themselves to wrapping along a path. Hope you’ll have as much fun with it as I have.
Download Border Bits here and make my day by leaving a comment. This font is free for personal or commercial use but not for resale or sharing on other sites, please. Pinning or otherwise pointing people to this blog page is a great way to say thanks. I’d also love to see creative ways you use this font.

Thank you so much for this. Been thinking I need to figure out how to do this on my own (yea, right), so this is extremely helpful for my new granddaughter’s memory journal.

Thank you for this awesome “font”! I can’t wait to start using it in my Silhouette software. I’m most excited to try out the banner symbols. I’ve been struggling trying to make these on my own but you just saved me a bunch of time. Have a great day!

Thank you so much. I’ve learned a lot from your video, was having trouble with spacing on text to path and this was just what I needed to figure it out. Downloaded your border bits too, this should come in handy with my next project. Thanks!
Gratidão pela fonte. Bastante útil.
