Design Your Own Borders & Frames: FREE Downloads

Lets have some fun with modified graphics circa 1920s. Using these full and half square design elements you can copy and repeat in many different ways for many different projects, print and web. Click on the above graphic to download a free PDF vector file of the basic designs. Then, using image editing software, which you can even find free on the internet, step & repeat individual pieces as you like. You can also use the graphics the ol’ fashioned way: print + cut + paste + repeat! Here are some examples of which you can snag up to use as free graphics as well.

Here are just a few ideas for using the designs:

  • Gift tags
  • Product Labels
  • Stencils
  • Blog headers & buttons
  • Monogrammed Stationery
  • Rubber stamps
  • Scrapbooking
  • Collage
  • Scrabble Tile Jewelry
  • Picture Frame Matting
  • Fabric bias tape
  • Wine Label
  • Iron-on borders

    Thanks! I think I’ll use one of these as a stencil on a wall I’m going to re-paint. I’ll just choose one, enlarge it as big as I can get it to print on letter size paper, and print it on card stock to use as my stencil. I’m wanting a large, floral design just a shade lighter than my wall’s color.

    I have Photoshop, but for some reason it won’t open this pdf. Could I possibly get this as a jpeg?

    I love woodcuts. Thanks for the beautiful designs. I’m just learning PSE and don’t know how to open a PDF in the program, if that’s even possible. I did a “Save as” on the examples. Is that correct? Thanks!
